#ToYouWithThanks Should Be a Year-Round Priority at Herbalife

As a new addition to Team Herbalife, I’m struck by the gratitude that employees and independent Herbalife members feel for each other and for their company that is dedicated to changing people’s lives.
We make nutrition products that, when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, can support a person’s healthy, active life. What we do is closely aligned with wellness and wellbeing and both of those philosophies are focused on cultivating an inner sense of peace and gratitude.
And even though Thanksgiving, a holiday that is unique and essential to the American spirit, only comes once a year, we believe that the concept of giving thanks is a universal theme to be celebrated the world over, across social and cultural boundaries, throughout the year.
Saying ‘thank you’ is an occasion to praise the kindness, support and encouragement of friends, family, colleagues, anyone in fact. Saying ‘thank you’ has its instant rewards and expressing gratitude can positively impact your life in the long term.
To energize our Members and communities in the United States, and to reflect the spirit of gratitude and giving back for the Thanksgiving holiday, we are kicking off #ToYouWithThanks – a campaign that encourages people to express their thanks to one another for helping achieve a wellness or life goal.
To get in the Thanksgiving spirit, we have created a series of ‘thank you’ cards that you can share in social media. If you want to personalize your message, you can download any of our designs, or add your message to a blank card.
The cards are available in our Shareables gallery on IAmHerbalife.com. And fans of Herbalife have been sharing in the fun on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ToYouWithThanks or #GraciasATi to post their cards of inspiration and support. Check out the social feed at the bottom of the article for the latest posts from around the world.
In addition to our fans, Herbalife leaders are taking part by sharing their own messages of gratitude. Check out these video messages from Michael Johnson, Chairman and CEO; Samantha Clayton, Senior Director, Worldwide Fitness Education; and Miguel Fernandez, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, The Americas and Worldwide Member Operations.
I’m thankful to work for the premier nutrition company in the world. What are you grateful for?
