We’ve all seen them: Women who are pregnant, women in love, and (arguably most frustrating of all!) women with flawlessly firm skin all appear to have a certain “glow” about them. What we too often tend to overlook, however, is the radiance of those women whose confidence lies not only in feeling their personal best, but in bettering the lives of others.
Beginning Saturday, May 14, Kiehl’s is looking to unite the power of beautiful skin and good deeds by partnering with Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. The event “Erase Lines, Fill Needs, And Ensure That No Kid Goes Hungry in America,” which will take place at all Kiehl’s freestanding stores nationwide, is looking to raise a total of $75,000 for the nonprofit organization. Customers can help reach the donation goal by giving at the cash register up until May 31.
The fundraiser’s kickoff this Saturday boasts special incentives to participate (not that you need any more!). In all freestanding stores, receive a complimentary 10.5-day supply of Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, and Kiehl’s will donate $1.50 per customer visit to Share Our Strength. Ambassadors of the nonprofit will also be hosting bake sales at select stores, while raffles for a Kiehl’s gift valued at $150 will be held at every freestanding location. As a further bonus, Vitamin C with complimentary oranges and orange juice will be provided!
Just one dollar from your pocket can help connect a child to 10 meals. If you’re unable to visit your nearest freestanding store, donations will be accepted at Kiehls.com from May 14 through Dec. 31, 2011.
