Operations and HR team members represented iHerb at
a bowling charity event “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” for Big
Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire on Sep. 14th.
iHerb sponsored a total of 14 girls and boys (children of Ops and Admin Parents) who attended Camp Einstein! The children had an opportunity to be involved in Science, Technology and Engineering. The camping experience included a field trip to Lake Gregory with kayaking, swimming and enjoying sleeping in Teepees. The kids were provided the opportunity to develop social skills and teamwork with canoeing, archery, and various projects.
Thanks to all iHerb Team Members for collectively donating 101 backpacks to children, K-12 grades. This year’s backpacks were provided by fundraising efforts, which included iHerb’s logo on the strap. Team members selected children’s tags with their favorite subject/hobby and filled the backpacks with school supplies. The children, parents and club staff were very thankful!

It was a fun evening for everyone!
iHerb hosted a day visit with our Chinese partner, SMZDM (acronym for Chinese “what’s worth buying”) at our locations in Perris and Irvine, CA. Their visit was to discuss the China market while helping Chinese customers understand who iHerb is and the purchasing to shipping process for customer orders. SMZDM is China’s number one deal hunting and recommended site for high-quality products and reliable e-commerce stores. We have partnered with SMZDM since 2012, and through our collaboration, more and more Chinese customers show interest in shopping at iHerb. Our goal is through this visit that our existing and potential Chinese customers will have full confidence buying from iHerb.
