I just returned to Paris from the doTERRA Europe convention and I was truly blown away by everything I experienced.
I met so many amazing people and listened to their stories about how doTERRA saved their family from debt, kept their child from getting sicker and so much more. I am not an overly emotional person, but I was moved to tears more than once while hearing how this company I’ve partnered with, is making a difference around the world.
It was one thing to read about doTERRA’s co-impact sourcing and Healing Hands Foundation — but it was something else entirely to talk with people whose lives have been forever altered by these programs, and hearing from the incredible men and women who have dedicated themselves to giving war refugees their dignity and helping little girls in developing nations know they aren’t dirty or evil because they menstruate. I cried — more than once — I cried.
I met with the founder of the charity group, Because We Carry. She and her group take donations to Lesbos, Greece to aid refugees coming ashore on their overcrowded, feeble, rubber boats. I’ve signed up to become a volunteer on the island for a week.
Another man, Nikos, who lives on Lesbos, has fed thousands of refugees in a restaurant he has renamed “Home.” If you have a few minutes, please watch his interview at the convention. His passion will move you.
In my classes, I tell the story of doTERRA helping to save a Sicilian citrus orchard from extinction — and it was so magnificent to see that family on stage.
This world is so much bigger than us and we tend to make light with things like #firstworldproblems when we have to reboot our iPads or Starbucks runs out of coconut milk. That’s not to say your problems aren’t problems –but it was humbling to be reminded of global issues and how we can make a difference through companies like doTERRA.
I want to change and heal the world!
