The annual report highlights the many ways our company, its more than 21,000 employees and more than 3 million distributors make a difference in the lives of others.
That includes building homes in Latin America, providing water filters in Haiti, building libraries in China and adopting schools right here in the hometown of our World Headquarters.
Corporate Social Responsibility is built into everything we do: our people, our products and our performance.
Steve and Doug credit their fathers for recognizing the potential in this business for making a difference.
“They made it their mission to be more, do more, give more. And more than a half-century later, we’re still emulating their powerful example. … We’re awed by how far we’ve come and inspired to keep becoming more, together.”
One of the wonderful things about our Amway One by One Campaign for Children is how our employees and distributors reach out to make a difference right where they live. Because we operate in more than 100 countries and territories, in the 10 years since the campaign launched, lives have been changed all over the world.
This infographic represents only a small fraction of the more than 10 million children we’ve helped over the last decade. There are just too many projects to fit on one map!

Our Amway One by One Campaign for Children celebrates 10 years of providing hope, inspiration and generosity to children across the world. In those 10 years, 10 million children have been helped by the efforts of our wonderful distributors and employees. We celebrate that accomplishment and thank everyone who made a difference. We also look forward to the next 10 years of building better lives for children in our communities.
Amway now operates in more than 100 countries and territories. Wherever we go, we try to connect with the community, and our hometown is no different.
We are pleased to partner with Grand Rapids NBC affiliate WOOD TV to share our stories of connecting to the West Michigan community. As Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel and President Doug DeVos explain in these videos, connecting with community has always been a part of the Amway culture.
They went to the remote Long Ma Village to learn about the Spring Sprout program that helps feed children whose parents moved to the city to find work.
And they went to Beijing, where other distributors are helping the rural children that moved with their parents to find work through Project Sunshine.
Migrant children in the city don’t have access to the same schooling as the children who live there. That’s where Project Sunshine comes in, helping to build libraries and supporting other educational programs.
The Amway One by One blog chronicled the team’s first impressions of the trip – Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 – and there will be more to come. Until then, check out the collection of photos at the Amway Facebook page.
The playground is the 14th built by KaBOOM! and Amway, the 10th built in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and one of more than 150 playground builds KaBOOM! will lead across the U.S. in 2012.
Amway President Doug DeVos and leaders from KaBOOM! and D.A. Blodgett kicked off this Amway One by One project with motivational words that stayed with us all day long. You could feel the energy build as people were dancing to the music and sweating from the heavy lifting. A heart-felt dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony reaffirmed each person’s role in making this dream a reality.
Building this playground brought hundreds of laughs and smiles, and it will be responsible for many more to come.
