LEHI, Utah -- March 5, 2022 – Young Living, the world's leading provider of essential oils, today released the following statement about the company’s efforts to support Ukraine relief.
The past 10 days have been nothing short of a nightmare for the people of Ukraine and peace-loving people everywhere. Our employees, brand partners and customers in Ukraine, along with the rest of the country have been literally cut off from the rest of the world in so many ways. We unequivocally state that we stand with Ukraine and citizens of the world in condemning this war and calling for peace and civil dialogue.
As our founder Gary Young taught us, actions speak louder than words, so we have been mobilizing our global family to help.
In Ukraine we have advanced salary payments to employees and paid commissions at pre-war levels to our brand partners in Ukraine for February. We are in constant contact with staff members in the country who have been organizing care package deliveries and gathering necessities to help people through this dark time. Additionally, we have been working with bussing companies to provide transportation for staff members and their families who want to get out of Ukraine, and are continuing our evacuation efforts.
Throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, the Young Living family has been organizing donations of necessities for people who have been flooding into neighboring countries since the war’s outbreak. Teams in our warehouses are assembling product kits including some basic hygiene supplies. Employees throughout the Europe, Middle East, Africa and North America regions have been invited to donate a portion of their earnings. We are also launching a global campaign through the D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation that can be found at https://www.younglivingfoundation.org/ukraine-relief. The Young Living Foundation is partnering with Asociatia Casa Share and British Ukraine Aid, to support displaced families in this urgent time of need. What’s more, Young Living will match each donation dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $100,000.
These are small things, but we hope they can begin to help make a difference. We will continue to monitor the situation and will adjust our tactics as needed to ensure we are doing our part to help ensure the safety and well-being of the people of Ukraine.
