As so often when we are faced with unprecedented challenges, brilliant, selfless people do astonishing things to help us all, often putting themselves at risk so that the rest of us can be as safe, healthy and secure as possible.
That is why, across North America, our US and Canadian teams banded together to partner with local shelters and senior communities to donate 30,000 units of cleansing products. Donated products included hand wash and soap.
We really hope this little act of kindness will help provide these wonderful people even the smallest amount of time to care for themselves when they are spending so much time caring for others. And to know that we really do appreciate the amazing work they are doing for us all.
We believe that self-care has never been so important, because it’s easier to be kinder to others when you are kind to yourself. That’s why we recently kicked off our #TimeToCare initiative, offering tips and advice on how to look after your mind and body, as well as care bundles to give yourself and send to others. Because we are all better when we care, and we care together.
At The Body Shop we will continue to search for ways to support key workers and local communities throughout this crisis.
Please keep safe and remember to be kind to, and respect, those around you… and to care for yourself at this difficult time.
OVER 1 MILLION PRODUCTS DONATED
It’s thanks to the tireless commitment, talent, strength and selflessness of our incredible healthcare workers across the world that we can take some comfort during such challenging times. We want you to know how much we appreciate you, so we’ve donated £4.5 million worth of products globally to support nurses, doctors, support staff and volunteers. Our care packages include shampoos, conditioners and shower gels to help staff feel refreshed on shift, as well as post-work pamper treats and hand creams for fingers that feel thirsty from frequent washing. Our gratitude to frontline workers grows greater each day but for now, we hope a little act of kindness will help provide them with even the smallest amount of respite while they go to extraordinary lengths to keep us safe.
As an added THANK YOU to our frontline workers, The Body Shop US/CA is excited to announce that we have made an additional donation of nearly 50,000 necessary products to local hospitals, food banks, and homeless shelters across the country.
