More than 5,700 participants joined virtually as integrative health and wellness company, dōTERRA, celebrated its third anniversary in Malaysia. Unlike the previous years where large-scale offline events were organised, the company’s anniversary celebration this year was held virtually amid public safety concerns over the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
Known for its firm commitment towards social impact outreach programmes, dōTERRA Malaysia highlighted some of its recent and ongoing community initiatives during the event.
“Earlier in the year, we had grand plans for a gala event in Kuala Lumpur but with COVID-19 becoming a major concern, we took the event online and celebrate virtually instead,” said Ethan Wang, General Manager of dōTERRA Malaysia.
Even during their ‘EngageInGood’ campaign in May, they managed to donate RM60,000 in light of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country by working with four local NGOs: Tenaganita, Refuge for the Refugees (RFTR), Dapur Jalanan KL, and Liga Rakyat Demokratik (LRD).
And ever since the year 2018, dōTERRA Malaysia has pledged over RM292,860 for their social outreach and community development initiatives.
The brand’s long-term commitment is to empower local communities and supporting charitable organizations related to self- reliance, healthcare, education, sanitation and anti-human trafficking. Befitting of the company’s social impact and empowerment narrative, the theme for the anniversary this year was ‘Empower’, with dōTERRA looking to empower lifestyle, wellness, knowledge and change through its products, causes and contributions.
