"Giving back to the community is an integral part of the ViSalus culture and central to our mission of Life, Health and Prosperity," said Ryan Blair, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ViSalus. "This holiday season, we are proud to continue that tradition by truly making an impact through the World's Largest Giving Day. There is no act too large or too small – the good works of a few can touch the lives of many, and that's what this day is all about."
