The Body Shop: Giving Joy To Every Body

The Body Shop’s focus this Christmas goes beyond spreading joy to our loved ones.
‘Giving Joy To Every Body’ is a campaign to bring the gift of education to the rural communities that produce the fair trade loofahs, cocoa butter and other ingredients. It will help build 5 schools in Ghana, Honduras, Nepal and India for regular kids and those with special needs have little access to education or have to walk as far as 5km to get to school.

£200,000 (almost S$400,000) from the sale of The Body Shop’s Christmas gifts will go to this project. By buying a gift for those we love, we’ll also be buying the precious gift of education for those who could really use it.

Weeks ago, I attended The Body Shop Schoolyard Event to find out more about their ‘Giving Joy To Every Body’ campaign and at the same time understand what are the Christmas gifts introduced by The Body Shop for Christmas 2013.

As the theme of the event is schoolyard, we had Art and Craft as one of the activities where we could design our own tote bags.
The tote bag that I designed.

Home economics was one of the lessons we attended that day. Cranberry, Vanilla and Ginger are part of the key ingredients of The Body Shop Christmas ranges.

Indulge yourself this Christmas! The Body Shop luxurious, special-edition collections are back again to spice up your festivities so you can spoil yourself each and every day. Evoking the heartwarming spirit of Christmas, these decadent delights are bursting with natural ingredients, sumptuous textures and the gorgeous gourmand scents of the season: zingy Ginger Sparkle; fruity Cranberry Joy;and indulgent Vanilla Bliss.
