Herbalife employees and distributors, as part of the company’s Global Month of Purpose, spent more than 3,200 hours volunteering to benefit people and the environment in Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Service activities this year included a visit to a school to serve and give gifts to mentally impaired children in Vietnam, preparing hot meals for 2,500 people in need in the Philippines, a beach clean-up in Taiwan, and plastic waste collection from the ocean in Indonesia.
“The Global Month of Purpose initiative complements our robust program of serving communities in need, creating additional opportunities to enable our employees and distributors to volunteer for worthy causes,” said Stephen Conchie, Regional President for Asia Pacific and China at Herbalife. “Whether it is the gift of time by volunteering at local Casa Herbalife programs, supporting neighborhood food kitchens, or picking up trash from beaches, our employees and distributors are continuously making positive efforts to improve our communities and planet.”
Herbalife offers 16 hours of paid time off each year to its employees for community service work. This year’s Global Month of Purpose initiative is part of the company’s goal of making 50 million positive impacts that nourish people and the planet by 2030, the company’s 50th anniversary.
