I'm so proud to belong to a company like Young Living. Read below! This is pretty awesome!
Dear Young Living Member:
We’re excited to announce that more than $1 million was raised for the Young
Living Foundation during the 2015 International Grand Convention! Your
overwhelming generosity signifies the remarkable start of a new chapter in
Young Living’s philanthropic mission.
known as the D. Gary Young Foundation, the Young Living Foundation is a
powerful vehicle for good throughout the world. Over the years the foundation
has evolved into the primary avenue through which Young Living demonstrates its
commitment to empowering families and communities worldwide. As chairman of the
board, Young Living founder D. Gary Young guides the foundation with his
lifelong passion for helping to improve the lives people everywhere. Following
his example, the foundation is dedicated to changing lives with greater impact
than ever before.
Prior to the 2015 International Grand Convention, Young Living director of
philanthropy Nikki Davis and philanthropy marketing manager Brittany Davis
visited multiple organizations to which the foundation has been donating in
both Kenya and Uganda. This visit resulted in three exciting new partnerships
for the Young Living Foundation in Uganda: Sole Hope, African Hearts Community
Organization, and Healing Faith Uganda.
Sole Hope is a non-profit organization that provides shelter and medical relief
from trained professionals to victims suffering from parasitic foot disease. If
left untreated, the disease can lead to infections, paralysis, and even
amputation. Beyond medical implications, those infected with the disease are
often ostracized from their communities and become homeless. In addition to
shelter and medical care, Sole Hope provides food to the sick and continuing
health education in the villages of those affected, so they can be welcomed
back home following recovery.
African Hearts Community
Hearts Community Organization is a rescue program for children living in the
slums and streets of Kampala, Uganda. Either orphaned or abandoned by their
parents due to poverty, these children are without food, shelter, and have very
little clothing. African Hearts was founded and is currently directed by
Lutaaya Abdul, who grew up in these slums. After watching multiple young
friends die amid the horrific conditions, he felt a need to make a change.
Despite setbacks, he established African Hearts to bring other children out of
the slums and into transitional homes where they receive food, shelter, and
social services, as well as a quality education through the African Hearts
Healing Faith Uganda
Healing Faith Uganda provides malaria education, prevention, and treatment to
rural villages. In Africa a child dies every 60 seconds from malaria. Through
Healing Faith Uganda, a single donation of just $5 provides a mosquito net that
can protect up to three children from malaria.
We will soon unveil the new Young Living Foundation website and marketing
materials. Until then you can continue to donate to the Young Living Foundation
in your Virtual Office by
clicking on the Young Living Foundation box to round your order total to the
nearest dollar and/or by adding an additional donation amount.
