[Note 3] Amore counselor social contributions
Beginning in 1964, Amore counselors are the major human resource who have 46 years of history and was loved by customers regardless of the changes of times, and led the cosmetics industry. Currently, there are around 37,000 counselors nationwide and their customers are as many as 3 million people. Long time ago, the big cosmetics bag which was the symbol of cosmetics sales ladies has disappeared and customer management using high-tech PDA has become popular but Amore counselors strive for the beauty of our customers and the society with the counselor law spirit to share hearts with people. 

Especially, Amore counselors have actively participated in invitation activities such as “Elderly Invitation” and “Invitation for Children without Parents” to foster social community notion and share warm hearts on the holiday of 2005.  In addition, they provided 30 elderly homes and 7 unregistered facilities and 70 public charges with cosmetics products, living utilities, and green tea to continue the sharing activities. 

These activities are on the same page as AmorePacific counselors’ own history.  In 1960’s, people were still suffering from the aftermath of the war and there were women who lost the heads of their families.  AmorePacific provided rice and briquettes to widows as well as jobs so that they were able to stand on their feet. We have been interested in abandoned women’s life and shared love to them, which led us to having a motto of “Returning the love we received from customers to the society” and implemented sharing activities to share love for our neighbors.
