We all know about my obsession with Kiehl’s…but not only do they make good products (seriously, they’re amazing), they also make good choices. I love the fact that they are so philanthropic and what I love even more is the fact that they’re giving us a CHOICE.
In their latest do-good project, Kiehl’s has partnered up with DonorsChoose.org, so you can actually have a say where the money goes for your purchase.
Beginning March 11 through April 15, Kiehl’s will offer its 3.4 oz Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate in a specially-designed carton that highlights DonorsChoose.org. Consumers will receive a $50 Donors Choose gift code, which they can use online to donate to science and education programs across the country. You get to choose where your donation goes…I like CHOICE people…it’s all about the CHOICE. And, as an added bonus, the winning organization sends out handmade thank you notes. Tres cute.
DonorsChoose.org is a remarkable nationwide organization that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Through DonorsChoose.org, public school teachers can post requests for their classroom, requests that can include anything from classroom computers to books, art supplies to other teaching materials. Donors can search by location, school or subject to find projects and donate to those that most inspire them. Once projects are fully funded, DonorsChoose.org then purchases the requested items and delivers them to the teacher – ensuring the funds are used specifically for the posted project. Donors are then personally thanked with letters and photos from the teacher and students.
When all’s said and done, $50,000 will be distributed to worthy educational causes through the Kiehl’s and DonorsChoose.org partnership, which is nothing to scoff at, especially when you’re also getting an AMAZING skincare product to boot. And where did I chose to donate? Well, I’m from New York…and I’m absolutely terrible at math, so there you go.
