Leaders make 700-mile trek to Tacloban and Ormoc to visit partner schools and deliver supplies

It is almost gone from the media now, but the effects of Typhoon Haiyan are still very real.

Amway leaders made the 700-mile trek to Tacloban and Ormoc to visit some of our partner schools in that area, and deliver supplies to Amway Business Owners that were affected.

TRIPLE PUNDIT OP-ED: Are Corporate Volunteer Days Worth It?

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.

But it can take many months to bring them to basic, functional levels.

Under the Pepper Tree: Nutrilite's 80th Year


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?

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.
