Inspiring Vibrancy in Our Community Through Our Passions.

Inspire Philanthropic Program Community Partnerships

At SPINS, we are committed to making an impact in our community and beyond. SPINS Philanthropic Program, Inspire, is an extension of our wellness program, Vibrancy360. At SPINS, we believe that making an impact is possible when humans help humans. By reaching out one hand to another, one individual at a time, we can make a greater impact on the lives of those who need it most.

We believe in sharing all of our health & wellness knowledge and expertise in order to educate our community about the importance of health and wellness as an everyday focus. This is why we work with small organizations that reach out to our underserved neighbors. Making a difference in just one person’s life makes our community 1% better, and we are all striving to be 1% better, every day.

At SPINS, we offer 8 Inspire hours—volunteer paid time off—so that our team members can infuse volunteer opportunities into their schedules with ease. Our structured program offers meaningful individual, team, or group opportunities throughout the year. We work with small organizations close to home that allow for making meaningful impacts in the lives of the individuals they serve, many of whom we are able to meet in person and see the effects of our work first-hand. This is human to human outreach at it’s finest.

Working at SPINS means so much more than just impacting the Natural Product Industry. It is about making health and wellness a lifestyle for all, encouraging mindfulness practices, self-care, and community outreach. We’re all in this together!

Salt & Light Coalition

Every year 25,000 women are trafficked in Chicago, of these women 30% are trafficked before the age or 15 and 60% before the age of 18. Salt & Light is a Coalition of volunteers and organizations that want to support their recovery. This organization is headed by Izabel Olson, our CEO Tony Olson’s wife, and largely funded by SPINS. Together, we make a big difference in our community. 

Join the Coalition.

 Any gender is welcome to serve as a back-office volunteer or at events, while only females can serve as on-site volunteer to keep a safe space for the survivors.

Client-Facing Volunteering

Volunteer yoga teachers, fitness instructors, nutrition experts nurses, and therapists fuel operations by sharing their talent and expertise with participants. Share your health & wellness expertise by hosting a demo.

Back Office Volunteering

Back-office volunteers help SALC run the organization by providing day to day services so that they can focus additional resources on the women they serve. A little goes a long way to help the organization grow.

SPINS works with Growing Home to help eradicate the food desert in Englewood and surrounding neighborhoods and educate the community about the importance of healthy and mindful lifestyles. We work together make organic produce more accessible to our our community and create educational workshops for residents to learn about all aspects of what it’s like to live, eat, and breathe healthy lifestyles.
