How doTERRA Oils Positively Impact The World - And How You Can Get Involved!
doTERRA, a brand known for its soothing and energy-inducing oils, is also making an impact around the world.
They reached out to me about an event their foundation, Healing Hands, was putting on in San Diego recently. Since I was traveling out of the country, they offered to send some oils my way in exchange for spreading their message about Healing Hands. After taking a look at what their foundation and Wellness Advocates are doing around the world with Healing Hands, I was happy to do so!
I asked if we could do an in-depth interview about Healing Hands Foundation, what they do to impact the people around the globe, and if there are opportunities people can get involved with to work, volunteer, or support around the world!
Enjoy this interview from Anne Wairepo, the Director of doTERRA Healing Hands!
Can you explain the story being Healing Hands Foundation and how your current projects are impacting the world?
From the beginning, doTERRA’s Founding Executives had a vision to bring healing and hope to the world by providing global communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® was formed to empower individuals and change lives. In the last year, we were able to distribute over 50,000 Emergency Relief Hygiene Kits, give 245 loans in Nepal, donate a mobile crime lab to be stationed in Arizona, and fund the construction of an aftercare facility in Haiti that will house survivors rescued from sex trafficking. For a full report on all of our 2018 projects, please see our Annual Report. We focus on projects that are thoughtful, impactful and sustainable in the communities we serve. We are proud to support efforts like micro-loan programs, access to healthcare, sanitation and clean water, educational opportunities, anti-human trafficking, feminine hygiene education and disaster relief.
You’re doing many projects in countries all over the world. Is there one specific moment or brief story you have that has felt rewarding or impacted you in some way?
Recently, some of our Wellness Advocates in San Diego have been helping us with emergency relief efforts at the border of the United States and Mexico. They are helping bring food, water and hygiene products to detained immigrants, some of whom haven’t seen their families since before Christmas. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is supporting the work our Wellness Advocates are doing to bring compassion and hope to these people and supplying the products and items they need. Projects like this remind me that we’re all humans and we’re all connected. We can truly change the world when we help one another.
What are some of the benefits of using doTERRA essential oils?
Through industry leading responsible sourcing practices, doTERRA maintains the highest levels of quality, purity and sustainability in partnership with local growers around the world. Each essential oil has its own unique chemistry and aroma, giving it an exclusive set of benefits for the user. You can check out doTERRA’s individual oils and proprietary blends for more information on the benefits of each oil. Personally, I’ve found so many wellness benefits from using doTERRA essential oils, like promoting a restful night’s sleep, supporting a healthy immune system, and help reducing stress and uplifting mood.
How can people get involved with Healing Hands? Are there volunteer positions (or paid positions) available to work around the world?
We encourage everyone to get involved with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation! It’s easy to find ongoing projects on our site that anyone can donate to and support. We are also proud to partner with doTERRA Wellness Advocates to help them give back to their community in meaningful ways. When a project is confirmed, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation will match fundraising efforts so advocates can make twice the impact! We’ve matched support for over 100 Wellness Advocate Projects and are thrilled to see the difference our advocates are making. You can also give back directly with the purchase of our Hope Touch essential oil blend. All proceeds are donated to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, to support efforts to fight sex-trafficking worldwide.
Thank you Anne & doTERRA for your work and showing us how we can help others around the world!
