Shaklee Tokyo Olympic Team

Shaklee Tokyo Olympic Team, “Kacey won the gold, Kacey won the gold!” Possibly the sweetest shout ever, when Kacey Bellamy and her teammates fought to victory in Hockey in the 2018 PyeongChang Games.

Shaklee Olympic Team

I can guarantee you that she wasn’t thinking about the dozens and dozens of fan mail encouragement she received from the Shaklee Family, but that support was absolutely, positively at the core of her motivation leading up to that moment. “I want to thank Shaklee for helping me and some of my teammates on this journey!” she exclaimed. “It takes a village and it’s the team behind the team that really makes the success happen!”

There won’t be a zillion crazy fans in the stands at these Games, but there will be an entire family—the Shaklee Family–cheering our Shaklee athletes.

Please send one, some, or all of the Shaklee athletes some fan mail/encouragement at this email address:

Shakleeheroes2020@shaklee.com

We’ll sort and send the notes to our athletes in Tokyo . . . and they’ll love it.

The stop date for this support is Monday, July 19th.

Let’s all win the gold with or support of these Shaklee superheroes . . . it matters. Just ask gold medalist, Kacey Bellamy!

Thank you, Shaklee Family.

DID YOU KNOW THIS ABOUT TOKYO???

Did you know that the International Olympic Committee and US Olympic/Paralympic Committee enforces “IOC Rule 40,” which restricts advertising that includes competitors in the Games and the use of the IOC and USOPC protected verbiage and marks, during the “Games Period,” from July 13th – August 10th?
For a detailed explanation of this rule, go here: https://bit.ly/3ibOTSL
In essence, Rule 40 protects the advertising space of Official sponsors (Shaklee is NOT an Official sponsor), by prohibiting non-official sponsors from advertising products or services by using the athletes in a way that might suggest a business relationship between the sponsor and the IOC or USOC or the Games.
Shaklee Independent Distributors are also subject to this rule. To avoid any infringement, please do not incorrectly use our Shaklee Pure Performance Team athletes competing in Tokyo in any of your advertising, and please do not use any IOC or USOPC protected verbiage or marks (such as the rings).
As a best practice, you may share the posts you see on the Shaklee Pure Performance Team Facebook page, which are carefully vetted to be free of Rule 40 infractions.
In addition, you MAY discuss the athletes, support their accomplishments, and cheer them in your personal channels.
Unfortunately, non-official sponsors cannot report Games results, except in a general way, such as “Congrats to Ally Carda on a great performance,” or “Congrats on your gold, Ally!” and so forth.
Thanks for your awareness and compliance with Rule 40. Please contact me if you have any questions.
