Fat = money??

Many of you have heard of Bill Phillips, the multi-millionaire philanthropist who founded Body-For-Life. It's a 12-week body transformation program that's assisted thousands of people in losing unwanted pounds, getting healthier and finding their true physical self.

At our last Liberty Conference, Bill Phillips issued an unusual challenge. He said that, for every pound of body fat lost by the attendees, he would donate $100 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. (You can watch Bill Phillips' challenge to us here.)

Well, the Liberty League Body/Mind Transformation was officially over yesterday. After calculating the amount lost, Bill Phillips will be writing a check to the Make-A-Wish foundation for more than $180,000! And, in an unexpected move, Liberty League founders Brent Payne and Shane Krider agreed to match it. That's just under $400,000 that will be donated to assist ill children!

Brent Payne (right) talks to some of the participants of Bill Phillips' Body For Life Challenge.
