Almost one year ago, we first realized the severity of COVID-19 and its life-changing impacts on a global scale.
But no one could ever have anticipated that we would still be immersed in this tremendously difficult situation today. Among those hardest-hit by the pandemic are the essential workers who continue to give their all on the frontlines.
In March 2020, Herbaland, Canada’s largest gummy manufacturer, stepped in to support these incredible individuals with its “Community for Immunity” campaign. The family-owned and operated company aimed to donate immune-supportive vitamin gummies to those in crisis.
This included groups of frontline workers like nurses, doctors, paramedics, and care home staff, plus vulnerable adults and children. Herbaland’s initial goal was to donate 10,000 bottles of Immune Plus Gummies, but after quickly ramping up, it donated more than 20,000 bottles — nationwide.
As community remains one of the company’s most cherished core values, it’s now announcing the launch of Community for Immunity 2021. This campaign acts as a reminder that kindness isn’t just a one-time action; it’s a dedication and accountability to our community.
This time around, Herbaland’s goal is to donate an additional 20,000 bottles of its immune-boosting and preventative health products to essential workers who have continued to work selflessly and tirelessly since the pandemic started.
Donations will begin on March 1, 2021, and if you know an essential worker who would be willing to accept a donation of vitamin gummies, Herbaland is asking you to fill out the form at the end of its Community for Immunity campaign page here.
After you do that, a representative from the company will reach out to you as soon as they can (and salute you for your dedication to flattening the curve, too).
“As a proudly BC and Canadian company, we felt it was only right to give and help out those that continue to help us each and every day. We hope we can inspire others to show kindness and compassion to each other,” Musharaf Syed, Co-Owner of Herbaland, told Daily Hive.
If you’re looking for more ways to show your support for Canada’s heroic frontline workers, you can purchase a unisex sky blue crewneck sweater from the Herbaland website ($35.99). Every sweater bought during the month of March will translate directly to one bottle of immune-boosting gummies for frontline workers.
This means you can stay cozy wearing a velvety-soft, fleece-lined sweater and know that your purchase will make a difference to the lives of others affected by or working to eliminate the coronavirus.
The sweater is only available for shipping within Canada, so remember to add another to your cart if you have a friend outside of Canada who would also like to support Herbaland’s campaign.
“With Community being one of Herbaland’s main core values, we were so happy to have the opportunity to give back and salute those incredible front-line heroes. Kindness and community go hand-in-hand, and we want to show that kindness is not just a one-time action but a dedication and accountability to the community,” said Aisha Yang, Co-Owner of Herbaland.
