The American Red Cross Utah Region announced today that members and employees of Lehi-based Young Living Essential Oils met a $50,000 company match bringing the combined corporate and member donation to $100,000 to support Red Cross relief efforts in Nepal.
“The response from our members and employees was astounding,” said Travis Ogden, Young Living Chief Operating Officer. “I am proud to represent a company whose members share the same core beliefs as our founders, and generously give to those in need.”
Heidi Ruster, Red Cross Utah Region CEO adds, “We are so grateful to Utahns and businesses like Young Living Essential Oils for supporting our efforts in Nepal to help so many that have been devastated by this disaster. The public can be reassured that 91 cents of every dollar donated will be spent on relief and recovery efforts.”
In light of the 7.3 magnitude earthquake that hit the already devastated region on Tuesday, May 12, Young Living is encouraging its members and employees to continue supporting the America Red Cross efforts. All donations made go directly to support the Red Cross and global relief efforts of the International Red Cross Committee.
