On May 14, Young Living Crown Diamond, Melissa Poepping, hosted her annual Spirit of Wellness Event in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The annual event educates members about the power of Young Living essential oils. Director of Global Philanthropy, Nikki Davis, was invited to report on the D. Gary Young Foundation’s philanthropic outreach around the world and highlights current projects in need of support. More than 600 members from around the region attended the event.

During the event, Nikki highlighted the Young Living Academy classrooms campaign. The campaign, which runs through May 31, was created to raise $75,000 to build high school classrooms. Members at the Spirit of Wellness Event donated a combined $31,000 towards the campaign, including a $20,000 donation from Diamond Jen Jordan.

The Young Living Academy in Ecuador is funded solely through the generosity of Young Living, its members and its employees. The school currently houses students from grades preschool through eleventh grade. This campaign will provide five additional classrooms for high school aged students, as well as a library, science lab, and teacher workroom.
