Dermalogica are a skincare brand known all over the world for their charitable efforts, which are far reaching and make a real impact in the communities that benefit from there.
One I didn’t know about was their support of the Mandela Day campaign, which has a simple message: Nelson Mandela gave 67 years of his life as a prisoner to fight for the rights of all humanity. This Mandela Day, July 18 2012, Dermalogica worldwide is asking for everyone to give 67 minutes of their time, whether it’s supporting a chosen charity or serving their local community – with the single purpose to change our world for the better.
To do their bit, Dermalogica New Zealand is hosting 67 auctions on Trade Me. From the 8th July until 18th July 2012 these auctions will raise money for Dermalogica’s philanthropic initiative, joinFITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship).
The items to be auctioned off to the public on Trade Me are a mixture of 60 minute treatments, which have been donated by Dermalogica Skin Centres throughout NZ, and Meet Dermalogica Kits (RRP $90) which include four of Dermalogica’s top selling products. Dermalogica New Zealand is also contributing a year’s supply of Dermalogica valued at NZD$2,000 to be auctioned off on the day as the 67th auction. All proceeds earned from the 67 auctions will be donated to joinFITE.
I’ve written about Dermalogica’s amazing global empowerment initiative, FITE, before. It was established in 2011 to do something positive to change women’s lives and focuses on helping women gain access to microfinance capital by providing small loans to help them start or grow a business. Pretty good stuff, and well worth your support.
