During our #EnchantedbyNature Christmas Media event on December 5, 2018 we were honored to give more than RM470,000 to various non-profit organisations in support for their contribution to society and the environment.
Thank you to all of you, our customers, who through the Kick The Bag Habit campaign are helping to protect our environment and wildlife. We have been able to fund RM400,080 for Wildlife Conservation Society, our partner NGO to protect the Malayan tigers and conserve their natural habitat in Endau Rompin, Johor.
The funds will allow WCS to patrol through the jungle to deter poachers, set up camera traps to study the wildlife evolution and protect Bio-Bridges (Bio-Bridges are restored wildlife corridors in threatened areas helping endangered species to reconnect, mate and find food to eat).
We are committed to working with WCS over 5 years.
At The Body Shop, we have been partnering with Women's Aid Organisation for many years, supporting their fights for women's rights and specifically to end violence against women and children.
Net proceeds from the sale of our candles of conscience (RM31,000) were donated to WAO to help them carry on with their counselling, shelter operations and advocacy work.
Sisters In Islam is a civil society organisation committed to promoting the rights of women within the framework of Islam and universal human rights. Its efforts to promote the rights of Muslim women are based on the principles of equality, justice and freedom.
Net proceeds from the sale of our candles of conscience (RM31,000) were donated to Sisters In Islam for their actions and campaigns promoting equal rights.
The Association of Women Lawyers received RM6,200 from the sale of candles and other merchandise in our stores for our joint campaign to End Child Marriage without exception in Malaysia.
The Malaysian Aids Foundation aims at putting an end to the negative impact of HIV and AIDS on Malaysian society. It strives to make positive changes in the life of those who are at the most vulnerable to HIV and AIDS and to carry out prevention and treatment efforts, particularly for programmes for women and children affected by the epidemic.
At The Body Shop we believe Safe Sex is a way to avoid HIV infection, therefore we are selling condom packs in all our stores, which proceeds are going towards the Malaysian Aids Foundation for their work on awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
