The dōTERRA convention blew my mind for the second year in a row! (I’ve only gone twice. I bet it’s been blowing minds since its inception.) Closest to my heart is hearing about all the ways that the Healing Hands Foundation is making the world just a little brighter. If you are not yet familiar with Healing Hands, here is their mission:

The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ is dōTERRA’s non-profit organization committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. Healing Hands seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, help those live lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. dōTERRA covers for all overhead and administrative costs of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, ensuring that 100% of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.

There are 3 main organizations Healing Hands currently partners with:

  1. Mentors International Micro-Lending – provides hard-working entrepreneurs with small business loans and education to help them succeed in their business.Mentors International provides start-up support, training, and loan capital for its partner organizations. Since the inception of the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation’s partnership with Mentors International, millions of individuals in developing countries have broken the cycle of poverty and learned to make a difference in their communities through the formation of small businesses with loans managed by Mentors International. Mentors International extends loans to people of all creeds and faiths and strives to mentor clients with proven business principles to ensure prolonged success.
  1. Days For Girls – seeks to help women and girls discover their potential and self-worth.

  1. Operation Underground RailroadO.U.R. has gathered the world’s experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.’s Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins.
