Clarins has supported the FEED Project for the past six years with amazing success. I love getting behind a brand that gives back. After volunteering with The Hope Foundation and travelling to Kolkata twice, helping to make the world a better place for children is close to my heart. When I heard that Clarins strive to do just that, I wanted to help spread the word in the hope that others would get behind it too.
What is FEED?
The FEED Project helps provide meals to schoolchildren in developing countries. Clarins initiative with FEED is driven by a strong partnership between Christian Courtin-Clarins and Lauren Bush. Lauren founded FEED in 2007. Having witnessed the effects of hunger first hand during her travels, she saw how a nutritious meal can break the cycle of poverty for schoolchildren. FEED began with the simple idea that by creating tangible products, customers would be connected to the cause. One bag at a time. In 2016 the Clarins partnership provided 4,452,155 meals and their goal for 2017 is four million more!
How Can You Get Involved?
With a Clarins purchase to the value of 65 euro, customers will be providing 10 meals for schoolchildren. As a bonus for getting on board with this worthy cause, customers will receive a FEED bag and three Clarins products. The products included are Exfoliating Body Scrub 30mls, Foot Beauty Treatment 30mls and Hand and Nail Treatment Cream 30mls. I have been trying these products myself and I love them. They are a nurses best friend! The body scrub and hand cream are in my work bag. The scrub leaves my hands silky smooth. The cream replaces all the moisture lost by my washing my hands a 100 times a day! After a long day on my feet, the foot beauty treatment cream is a must. This is the perfect way to try a new product and do something very worthwhile.
Your FEED bag is a very pretty burlap style cosmetics pouch. Burlap has become FEED’s signature. It represents the food ration bags Lauren witnessed on her travels.
