A number of stars have partnered with skin and hair care specialists Kiehl's to help charity.
Since its early days, Kiehl’s has been committed to the betterment of the communities where it serves its patrons. In celebration of the company’s 160th Anniversary, Kiehl’s has established “Kiehl’s Gives” – an ongoing global initiative to promote philanthropy, in proud partnership with Julianne Moore, Pharrell Williams and the Scissor Sisters.
“We are honored to partner with advocates Julianne Moore, Pharrell Williams and the Scissor Sisters to launch Kiehl’s Gives. It’s a wonderful way to build awareness of the overall importance to give back, and spread the message of Kiehl’s mission statement,” said Chris Salgardo, Kiehl’s President, USA. “Kiehl’s Gives is a celebration of our causes, our customers, and our communities.”
“For me, helping to give kids a fair shake here in the US, and around the world is so important, and I’m grateful to be able to be able to partner with Kiehl’s to help get this message out, " said Julianne Moore, ambassador for Save the Children, one of the recipients of funding from the “Kiehl’s Gives” initiative.
To kick-off the initiative, Kiehl’s has launched www.KiehlsGives.com with a donation of $160,000 to charitable organizations in the US and around the world in three key Kiehl’s causes: children’s well-being, environmental issues, and HIV/AIDS research – but it’s up to Kiehl’s visitors to determine how much goes where, by casting their vote.
Each pillar is brought to life through a short film series, viewable only at www.KiehlGives.com, and featuring high-profile charitable individuals, who express their personal commitments to causes important to them:
“These days there are many ways to build and manufacture using greener, more sustainable means, and Kiehl’s is a company I’ve worked with since 2010 to help get this message out,” said Pharrell Williams, partner in Return Textiles, Inc, and founder of From One Hand to Another, his charitable foundation that is behind the construction of an eco-building in Virginia that will serve as an educational resource center for children.
“Supporting efforts to not only help find a cure for AIDS, but also to support those who live with it, is something very near and dear to our hearts. We are thankful to join Kiehl’s to be able to inspire more people to give back,” said Ana Matronic, lead singer, Scissor Sisters, and supporter of After Hours Project, a local AIDS charity based in Brooklyn, NY, where she and other members of the band live.
