heart-shaped soap of two hands embraced as one that symbolizes an open welcome of Syrian refugees into Canada.
100% of the sale of the soap will go towards the Friendship Fund which will benefit organizations working to help Syrian refugees and their families settle into their new lives far away from the world they have known.
Through the sale of the soap, Lush aims to raise $450k towards the Friendship Fund directly benefiting Syrian Refugees resettlement efforts. The Friendship Fund will be distributed to Lush’s campaign partners, International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Amnesty International Canada, and other groups working toward refugee resettlement in North America. In addition to purchasing the soap,
customers can show their support by visiting Lush Cosmetics stores to send a postcard to personally welcome refugee families. Online shoppers will have the option to send a warm welcome message via Lush.ca. Customers are also encouraged to show their support socially by using #RefugeesWelcome and by visiting www.amnesty.ca/lush to sign the online petition to the Canadian government, urging them to keep their commitment.
Available now exclusively at Lush stores across Canada until February 28th, 2016.
