ADA, MI, May 29, 2014 /3BL Media/ – Amway today released its 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, "We Believe,” highlighting the combined efforts of Amway, its business owners and employees as they continue to improve the lives of people all over the world.
“Knowing we are making a difference in people’s lives gives us a tremendous sense of fulfillment,” said Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel. “Doing so helps fulfill our vision of improving lives and makes this world a little better for us and the generations to follow.”
Jesse Hertstein of Amway asks: How do the benefits of day-long volunteering stack up against long-term investments?
I serve on the board of a Literacy Center that aims to elevate reading and writing levels across the community. One of our most powerful programs uses one-on-one volunteers to teach adults to read for the first time in their lives. It’s powerful stuff. But it can take many months to bring them to basic, functional levels.
Imagine you’re sitting under the giant pepper tree in Lakeview, California, (shown here in our 80th anniversary logo) with Nutrilite founder and visionary Carl Rehnborg.
As employees, distributors and visitors often did, it was the place to find Carl; to read, talk and discuss the important topics of the day.
Our 80th year of Nutrilite certainly deserves the center of our attention. With many plans in the works, we’re reflecting on our roots, saluting eight decades of amazing growth and focused on our future.
We were no longer in control... but were we supposed to be?

We were no longer in control … but were we supposed to be?
I often travel for work, and this year all of my travel was crammed into a few weeks. First, I found myself in Russia to participate in the launch of a new charitable foundation. Next was a whirlwind trip to South Africa, where we documented an education program supported by Europeans.
On November 20th, 2013, approximately 4,000 Amway employees volunteered to support 15 area non-profit organizations through 22 projects in a 24-hour time period. This day of giving back to the community was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the AMWAY – One by One Campaign for Children.
