Pune, January 08, 2019: Independent representatives of Direct Selling company QNET have once again come together, this time to brighten up the New Year for the underprivileged. In a series of events spread across 22 cities throughout India, various groups of Independent Representatives have come forward to raise funds and help underprivileged communities.
Over hundreds of entrepreneurs, who are professionals across all age group, run a successful direct selling business with QNET, have pledged up to INR 1 lakh per city towards important causes benefiting a local community in need. While various Independent Representatives have been coming together during Diwali every year, this is the second year that some of them have initiated such activities during the New Year to reinforce their commitment to helping communities and their own belief in the spirit of giving.
As part of this effort the group of entrepreneurs in Maharashtra covered three cities including Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur by providing essential commodities including toiletries, stationaries, books, sports materials, first-aid kits and audio-visual equipment.
The activities were carried across various organisations including Bhatkya Vimukt Jati Sjokshan Samatha in Pune, Save the Smile Social Foundation in Mumbai and Jeevan Ashray Seva Sanstha in Nagpur.
The effort in all the three cities along with other entrepreneurs in other centres echoed the sentiments of the group saying “QNET has helped us transform not only our lives, but the lives of those around us. Sharing the abundance created by the opportunity provided to us by the direct selling industry is our way of giving back to the community this New Year.”
Commenting on the effort, QNET Global CEO Trevor Kuna said “The initiative undertaken by our Independent Representatives in their individual capacity is truly encouraging. QNET’s underlying philosophy of RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind is the force that drives a lot of what we do. It is a reflection of our business, which is about empowering people to take control of their lives, so that they can, in turn, help empower their communities. After all, there is no better feeling than doing well while you are doing good”.
QNET had in the past partnered with the Cancer Patients Aid Association in Mumbai to support the treatment of children with cancer from low-income families. QNET had also contributed significantly towards the Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya campaign by partnering with the Lions Club in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad on a number of projects including clean drinking water, nutrition education and health camps for children.
