Morinda supports flood relief efforts in Tahiti

 

PAPE’ETE, Tahiti, 2017-Feb-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — The end of January brought devastation to the people of Tahiti. After days of torrential rain and heavy flooding, many residents were evacuated from the island while thousands of others were left to take care of the broken remains that they once called home. Morinda holds Tahiti particularly dear as its “homeland” and was quick to lend a helping hand.

After receiving record-breaking amounts of rain in just 24 hours, the island of Tahiti was declared to be in a state of natural disaster when flooding began to destroy the island’s infrastructure. Main roads were damaged by landslides, major bridges were destroyed, and the island’s international airport was shut down for several days as a direct result of the flooding.

“We were devastated to hear about the recent disaster in our homeland,” said Kerry Asay, Morinda Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We want to do all we can to help the people of Tahiti during this difficult time.”

Morinda has a manufacturing plant on the island of Tahiti with good-hearted employees. With the coordinated efforts of local employees Hine and Scott Tuitupou, and the financial support of Morinda in the United States, the company was able to provide 45 major household appliances to families in need.

“We have an ongoing relationship with organizations focused on benefitting Tahiti,” said Kelly Olsen, Morinda Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. “We want to give back to the island that gave so much to us.”

Even with governmental assistance and charitable efforts from organizations and companies like Morinda, however, thousands of people found themselves in a state of despair. For a time, more than 6,000 homes were left without power. When all was said and done, more than 800 homes were completely destroyed.

Morinda offers exclusive charity items with 100 percent profits to be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund

AMERICAN FORK, Utah, 2016-Nov-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Morinda is a company dedicated to helping people. From products that maintain bodily health to programs that support financial freedom, Morinda is constantly striving to benefit the lives of others. In the past, Morinda’s corporate offices have participated in multiple service projects to support their surrounding communities. This holiday season, Morinda is extending the opportunity to help those in need to the public by offering exclusive charity items with 100 percent of the profits being donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

“Here at Morinda, we’re extremely passionate about giving back,” said VP of Sales & Marketing Shon Whitney. “This year, we wanted to do more than participate in a corporate humanitarian project—we want to extend the opportunity to give back to others to our customers and IPCs.”

The charity items being offered are select pieces from the exclusive ML Boutique collection consisting of high-end artisan jewelry, which will be available for purchase starting on Cyber Monday, November 28, and will remain available through Christmas Day.

“[The ML Boutique was created with the idea that] fashion shouldn’t just be timeless,” said Chief Marketing Officer and Founder Kelly Olsen. “It should be ageless.”

Five of the ML Boutique pieces were selected as charity pieces. They can be purchased individually or in select sets, which couple two pieces together at a slight discount. The profits from sales on both individual pieces and sets will be donated to the American Red Cross.

“It is impossible to count how many millions of dollars Morinda has given back to the community [here in the United States,] but also to the community of Tahiti and to the community of countries all over the world,” said Jon Hallstrom, Morinda’s Senior Director of Sales. “We’re proud to continue the tradition that Morinda has created over the last 20 years and do something to give back to other people.”
