@myrightbite Sign-up for a healthy meal package and help send deserving kids to school
On the surface, you might think that subscribing to a custom Right Bite meal plan package could only help you meet your nutrient needs and achieve your fitness goal. Not quite, as the benefits extend beyond giving you good health – you are also actually helping a child in Bangladesh pursue his dream through education!
Right Bite, in line with its commitment to give back to communities, is donating a portion of its healthy meal plan packages’ sales revenue to the Maria Cristina Foundation (MCF), a charity established by Maria Conceicao with the primary mission to provide education for the street kids of Dhaka in Bangladesh. Right Bite sealed its partnership with MCF at the start of this year and since its inception, Right Bite has been able to sponsor a number of children and hopes to provide for more deserving kids as the partnership continues.
Right Bite lauds MCF’s focus to provide the highest standard of assistance for the benefit of the children. The company in fact acknowledges the foundation’s uniqueness revealing that its practice of channelling donations in full 100% to the beneficiaries is one of the primary reasons that prompted Right Bite to solidify its ties with Maria Cristina Foundation.
In addition, Right Bite gives further support to the MCF founder, Maria Conceicao, as her nutrition advocate, in which Right Bite provides Maria with continuous nutritional consultations, advice and encouragement as she takes on different endurance challenges in support of her charity. Maria, who has already summited Mount Everest, trekked to the North Pole, summited South America’s Aconcagua and Africa’s Kilimanjaro, and climbed Denali in North America, recently conquered the 777 Challenge, a seven full-distance 50km ultra marathons, that was run on each of the seven continents in seven weeks. While training for the 777 Challenge, Maria received daily provision of healthy meals from Right Bite’s FuelUp program, which is designed for individuals who want to increase in muscle mass, reach a desirable percent body fat as well as ensure they are getting the right nutrition to achieve peak performance.
Nathalie Haddad, Founder and Managing Director, The Right Bite Nutrition and Catering Services L.L.C., said: “Right Bite is a lifestyle enhancing nutrition and catering service. While we stand for healthy living and eating, we are also passionate about empowering individuals to make positive changes to their overall well-being. We are thrilled to be given this opportunity to work with Maria Conceicao, and in our own little way, make a difference in some people’s lives.”
The undertaking is a natural extension of Right Bite’s longstanding commitment to promote the importance of education. “We had a Right Bite team that recently went to Dhaka as part of our focus on this campaign. We are privileged to have met the children, as well as being able to visit their school and their families. It’s overwhelming to see that there’s too much help needed but knowing that what we provide the children is a long-term and sustainable approach for poverty reduction, we know that our efforts will definitely bear fruits. It’s really a wonderful campaign as Right Bite is not the only one contributing to the cause. Somehow we are able to engage our customers in it. We’re also giving them the opportunity to create a brighter future for the less fortunate, one child at a time,” Nathalie added.
Making a lasting impact on the world may not be an easy task, but it is definitely not impossible, especially for Right Bite. “We have always adopted well-thought CSR programs, and we believe that if you really want to make a difference, you have to stay true to what you do. It’s more like being in a marathon, not a sprint. We are helping in a small manner but hope to go a long way,” Nathalie declared.
To extend maximum support to MCF, Right Bite also set up a link on their website (www.right-bite.com) to the foundation’s donations gateway for those who wish to donate. There is also a Dynamic Donation Counter on the page displaying the donation amount generated.
