Celebrating 30,000 Coaches!

Within the next week or so we will have over 30,000 current coaches, and to celebrate this growing force of people-helping-people, we've committed to give $150,000 to supply fresh drinking water in regions it is needed most, thanks to the work of Raincatcher, and the growth of Team Beachbody!



This is what I learned recently: there is more than enough clean fresh water available if you catch it when it falls from the sky - that's the secret. It doesn't have to be high tech, it doesn't have to be pretty - it just has to catch the rain, and store ALL OF IT so there's enough water to last until the next rainfall. That's what these guys do. And now we help them do it every time we sign a new distributor.

The hard work of our Team Beachbody coaches symbolizes the kind of ingenuity and persistence of Raincatcher. People helping people. And it's such an integral part of our mission to help wherever we can, we committed to give another $5 for every active coach we have onboard as of Dec 31st 2010.

For every $5, we help another 5 people have access to drinking water. Your actions, your success, now has an even greater consequence than helping to end the trend of obesity.

We'll supply more details from time to time here in my blog, especially as soon as we hit the 30,000 coach mark. In the meantime, dust off your list of "maybe sometime" prospects, and tell them in addition to getting healthy, helping end the trend of obesity, and "earning a second income without a second job", there's a new reason to sign up: To help us get water to people who need us now.

Here's to you Team Beachbody! Keep up the awe-inspiring work!

Raincatcher is an organization working on what is arguably the most important resource necessary to support humanity. I am honored to be part of Team Beachbody, which is giving back so generously!

Love it! I tell so many people that this is not just a fitness business. This is a group of individuals who share a passion for changing lives through fitness and nutrition. We are by far one of the largest groups of people who both individually and collectively care about helping someone other than ourselves!

Our company is so great I'm just starting to see results in my own life. My daughter in law has lost at least 3 inches around her waist, she has to get her work pants taken in again. It's really amazing to see your family get results. I'm so proud to be a Beachbody coach!! We lead the pack!!

I am very happy to be part of this. I am one of the raincatchers. I started Rain Angels for Uganda with the help of Wendy and Greg Lynch. It started small as we sowed the seeds. Now we are realizing our dream of seeing a water tank and purifier in our schools in Uganda.
