This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. While many have struggled challenges over the past several months, doTERRA has focused on service and continuing to support health and wellness for their customers and healthcare workers. We’re honored to have Missy Larsen, one of doTERRA’s Vice Presidents, here to tell us more about these efforts.
In addition to being the leader in the global aromatherapy and essential oils market, doTERRA is known as a company that gives back in meaningful ways. This year is the tenth anniversary of the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, doTERRA’s non-profit arm. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization has found ways of supporting healthcare workers across the United States. Over the past 6 months, the Foundation has given more than $2 million in financial and goods donations for worldwide COVID-19 relief, a portion of which has gone towards support kits for frontline workers.
At the beginning of April, doTERRA announced a matching campaign for coronavirus relief. Less than two weeks later, the campaign reached the goal of $250,000. doTERRA then tripled the donation, for a total of $750,000 that went towards support healthcare organizations and 15,000 support kits for nurses, doctors, and first responders in the United States and Canada. doTERRA also donated 5,000 PPE kits to Intermountain Healthcare—enough for every healthcare worker in Utah County!
We’re grateful that doTERRA is at the vanguard of support for Utah—and the nation’s—COVID-recovery efforts. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
