Who Is Christopher Pair?
When people look at America, they find it hard to fathom that such a great country has issues with hunger. However, the pitiful the truth is that there is hunger and there is a gathering of individuals who eat without knowing where their next dinner would originate from or when it would be. One of those who has survived this is Christopher Pair. Because he experienced the situation firsthand, it shaped him and has played a massive part in the type of person that he is to this day. Christopher pair was born to a tenant farmer who was the son of a Mexican foreigner. This means that he came from very humble beginnings. Poverty was the norm back then, and in an attempt to break the cycle of poverty, Christopher’s dad joined the army. He served in the army for a time and retired back to becoming a gardener after leaving the service. As a child, it was common for Christopher to go without food. Whenever they had it, its nutritious value was very low.
Looking for other sources of income was the only way they could survive since the income they already had was not at all enough to provide all of them with food. One splendid thought they had was recycling. Christopher says that they searched for soda jars and sold them to recyclers. They then used the money to buy food for the family. The only way Christophe could think of to get out of the situation they were in was to get an education, and that is what he did. The experiences he had while growing up stayed with him all through and made him work extra hard. His biggest dream was to go back and the change the lives of all those who were in the same situation as he was when he grew up by providing them with access to better lives. This drove him to the direct selling industry where he can advance change from his situation as the president of operations at Plexus Worldwide that is a direct selling organization. He promoted this change by deciding to address an issue that he faced and that millions of families continue to face in America.
Instead of the conditions in which Christopher grew up holding him back, they fueled his ambition, and he found a way to help others like him. In his journey, he heard about a company called Plexus that was dedicated to helping others and decided to join it. Another partnership that brought his dreams closer to fruition was a partnership between Plexus and Feeding America. It gave them the necessary tools that they needed to change the world one meal at a time. A famous quote by him is “life is about more than what I need for myself, when we give, we find greater purpose and fulfillment”.
