The Body Shop x Amnesty International Gift Tags

The Body Shop and Amnesty International Partner to Support Equality, Justice and Freedom for Indigenous Children.

Each Christmas since the early 1990s, The Body Shop Australia has supported Amnesty International Australia, selling Christmas cards and gift tags in its stores with 100% of all proceeds donated back to the human rights organisation.

The Body Shop is proud to partner with Amnesty International again and introduces the 2020 Christmas gift tag, featuring design by Indigenous artist Rachael Sarra, titled ‘Together’. Tags are available to purchase online or in-store. All proceeds from the gift tags will be donated to Amnesty International, which is working to protect the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

This year, funds will again be going towards Amnesty’s work to raise the age of criminal responsibility, and will help support equality, justice and freedom for Indigenous children, with a focus on kids at risk of being trapped in the youth justice system.

Across Australia, children as young as 10 are locked up. Between 2018 and 2019 Indigenous children made up 65 percent of 10–13 year olds in prison. Raising the age of criminal responsibility is an important step to reducing the over-representation of Indigenous children in the Australian prison system. Together we can make this happen. Add your name to Amnesty’s petition and call on all governments across Australia to raise the age kids can be locked up to at least 14 years old.
