I'm one of those people who genuinely love gift-giving. It's exciting to find that perfect present you know they'll love but also probably wouldn't get a chance to buy for themselves. This is also why my Christmas shopping starts a lot sooner than December.
You really hit the gift-giving jackpot, though, when your gift can brighten up the lives of more than just the giftee. Which is exactly what'll happen if you gift anything from The Body Shop this year.
The company has partnered with global children's charity, Plan International, which strives to create an equal platform for girls around the world through several initiatives.
This Christmas, The Body Shop is teaming up with Plan International to provide girls and young women in Indonesia and Brazil with the training to start their own businesses or find safe, decent employment where they otherwise didn't have access to it. The Body Shop has set a goal to raise £250,000 (approx. $450,000 AUD) towards Plan International's programme to provide training and skills for 1,500 girls in these countries.
How will you shopping at The Body Shop help? Every purchase made between November and December will contribute to this final goal, supporting girls and young women to achieve their dreams in the process.
So not only will you be gifting beautiful skin and irresistible scents to the people in your life, but also a better future to girls and young women.
