Focuses on its global Kindness initiative that exceeded more than 270,000 acts of kindness through partnership with Kindness Ambassador Leon Logothetis of The Kindness Diaries
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah, Nov. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of World Kindness Day on Wednesday, November 13th, doTERRA is continuing the kindness initiatives it introduced in August of this year. True to the company's mission of changing the world one drop, one person, one community at a time, doTERRA launched the 15-day Kindness Challenge leading up to its annual global convention that was held in September. The 15-day challenge encouraged participants to engage in the worldwide movement to spread more kindness by performing one act of kindness each day. The campaign generated over 270,000 unique acts of kindness from small acts like sending a text message or note to someone who has made a difference, to organizing a clothing drive, paying it forward, donating food to the local food bank, visiting the elderly, and more. In partnership with Kindness Ambassador Leon Logothetis of the Kindness Diaries, the doTERRA 15-day Kindness Challenge encouraged participants to spread the message that "kindness makes people feel less alone."
The campaign continued throughout the fall as doTERRA participated in community and service events in seven cities throughout the United States.
"When we founded doTERRA, we made a commitment to pursue what's pure," said Mark Wolfert, founding executive. "In order to provide pure essential oils to millions of customers throughout the world, doTERRA created responsible sourcing practices that not only guarantee the purity of our products but also support over 165,000 jobs in more than 40 countries. We back this with the support of the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, which is putting kindness to work all over the world and effecting positive and sustainable change."
In celebration of World Kindness Day, doTERRA is continuing the worldwide movement to spread kindness by encouraging everyone to perform one act of kindness on November 13 and continue to be kind throughout the holiday season. Leon Logothetis said, "The holidays can be a time of giving and receiving but they can also be a lonely time for many. People often ask me, 'Leon, what is kindness?' and they expect an epic answer. But the truth is, kindness is really quite simple. For me, kindness is simply helping someone feel less alone. How you show up in your everyday life, how you show up moment-to-moment, makes a profound difference to others and to yourself. I challenge you to be part of the Kindness movement to help people see the magnificence in themselves."
