MONAT Gratitude, the philanthropic movement behind MONAT Global Corp (MONAT), hosted its fifth-annual Gratitude Week by impacting local communities around the world. Over 1,500 Market Partners and employees of the Miami-based company joined forces around the globe by organizing and hosting efforts to benefit local non-profits or spread gratitude in communities throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and, for the first time, Ireland and Poland.
The first Gratitude Week took place five years ago when Sr. Luis Urdaneta, chairman and co-founder of MONAT, asked that, in celebration of his birthday, everyone take action and make a positive impact in their community, the week is part of MONAT Gratitude’s fourth quarter focus on impacting communities around the world.
One of the largest efforts that took place during Gratitude Week was a holiday lunch at Miami-based Lotus House, an organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of homeless women, youth and children. The MONAT team transformed the dining area into a fine dining experience and served over 200 women that live in the shelter. Guests enjoyed live music and a gourmet menu prepared by Recipes for Change, and they each received two products from the MONAT Skincare line.
Other events include:
- Wrapping presents with The Toy Project

- Snacks & Ladders Game Night with Big Brothers Big Sisters in Canada
