Around the world, November 13th is a day where kindness is celebrated. World Kindness Day honors the importance of being kind to oneself and to each other. doTERRA has always believed in the power of both random and not-so-random acts of kindness.
Last year, doTERRA launched the #BeKindTogether campaign to “Change the World with Kindness.” As part of this campaign, people from around the world pledged to engage in daily acts of kindness. There is a current running total on bekind.doterra of 331,092 acts of kindness completed collectively by Wellness Advocates, wholesale customers, corporate employees, and everyone else who wanted to join in the fun.
The good from this campaign has not stopped. Leon Legothetis, doTERRA’s kindness ambassador, visited the Food and Care Coalition in 2019 to donate 72-Hour Emergency Relief Hygiene Kits as part of last year’s kindness initiatives. As a result of this visit, doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation has since committed significant time and funding to help the Food and Care Coalition build the Candlelight Villas housing for those in need in Utah County. The groundbreaking for these villas happened just last month! There is no end to an act of kindness.
In addition, this year at doTERRA corporate, colleagues were encouraged to nominate associates who make a difference and are examples of kindness. These virtual submissions have allowed doTERRA employees to look beyond themselves and notice the kindness all around them by celebrating those who have emulated kindness this year.
Kindness should be celebrated. Let’s continue to #BeKindTogether!
