dōTERRA Organizes Disaster Relief Fundraiser for Lahaina, Maui Fires

Aug 15, 2023
dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation will match every dollar raised for Maui fires up to $100,000

PLEASANT GROVE, UT – August 15, 2023. dōTERRA, through its dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®, has organized the Mālama Maui - Disaster Relief Fund in response to wildfires that have destroyed the historic town of Lahaina, Maui. Join us in supporting those who have been displaced by providing emergency necessities, supplies, and accommodations, as well as in rebuilding Lahaina and other affected communities.  

To support, donate to the dōTERRA  Healing Hands Mālama Maui - Disaster Relief Fund.

dōTERRA is matching every dollar raised through the above dōTERRA Healing Hands link up to $100,000. As always, 100% of donations go directly to aid because dōTERRA International, LLC covers the operating costs of the foundation. 

With a fundraising goal of $100,000, plus dōTERRA’s generous match, up to $200,000 could be raised to directly support nonprofit organizations in Maui that help lift and provide aid to those affected by this tragedy.  

"Our hearts and prayers are with all those who have been impacted by the devastation in Hawaii,” said Missy Larsen, Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Impact at dōTERRA. “Honoring mālama, dōTERRA Healing Hands® responded quickly with emergency supplies and will continue to support Maui. We invite all to join us as we engage in the rebuilding of this beautiful community and island gem.” 

In addition to the match, dōTERRA Healing Hands and Wellness Advocate leaders (doTERRA’s independent distributors) have been working together to partner with organizations on the ground to identify and meet immediate and future needs of those affected. Within a day, dōTERRA Healing Hands expedited 4,500 Emergency Relief Hygiene Kits to the area to be distributed by local Wellness Advocates and will continue to send these kits as relief efforts persist on Maui. 

Jake Reis, dōTERRA’s Pacific Region-Business Development Director, also a native Hawaiian born and raised in Nānākuli O'ahu, commented, "We send our aloha, our prayers, and all of our support to the people and ohana in Maui. We are working to determine how we may best serve your needs and provide relief in every way we are equipped. One of the greatest ways we all can help is by donating to the dōTERRA  Healing Hands match program or purchasing hygiene kits to help support urgent basic needs. Thank you for your desire to partner and serve alongside us. I know every effort makes a significant difference!”
