Deliciously zesty and super-moisturizing, our feel-good, do-good Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will help give you lips that are super soft and smoochable. With 100% of the profits going to charity, you can enjoy a warm feeling inside as well as luscious lips.
HOW’D WE DO?
Last fall, we asked you to “Vote With Your Lips” to raise money for animal welfare, human rights and environmental charities by purchasing a Dragon Fruit Lip Butter. So how’d we do? Together we generated over 115,000 votes for 3 U.S. charities including: Dress For Success, Pollination Canada and Polar Bears International.
Here’s how the program works: 75% of the total profits from the sales of our Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will be divided between our three participating charitable organizations (excluding the cost of goods, transport and local taxes.). Of that, 50% will go to Polar Bears International, the charity that received the highest number of votes. 30% will go to Dress For Success, which came in second place and 20% will go to Pollination Canada, which came in third place. The remaining 25% will go to The Body Shop Foundation’s global grants program.
Although the voting period is now closed, YOUR ACTION can still help to drive change in our world. The sales of our super-moisturizing Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will continue to help support our three great charity partners now through August 2014.
