It feels good when your beauty addiction gives back, which is exactly the idea behind Kiehl's philanthropy. Kiehl's has been selling skincare products since 1851, and what started as an old-world apothecary is now embracing their child-like side for a cause. That's where their Disney x Kiehl’s Holiday Collection comes in.
For nine years now, the brand has been running an annual Limited Edition Charitable Holiday Collection, where a certain amount of their proceeds go to a charity of choice. Passionate about giving back to the community that has long supported them, Kiehl's has decided to collaborate with Disney this year to raise money for Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief organization in the U.S. that serves one in seven Americans.
With the holiday season just around the corner, you might already be thinking about what kind of gifts to get for your family or friends. Why not have those presents work double-duty by delighting the person who's ripping open the wrapping paper, and helping get a meal into someone's hands this winter? Up to $100,000 of the profits will go to the organization, helping provide 1,100,000 meals to families in need this holiday season. And seeing how Feeding America has been working overtime in the multiple hurricane-affected zones this fall, they can use as much support as possible.
Seeing how the brand has been supplying the finest skincare products for 166 years now, this collection doesn't disappoint. Featuring Mickey on its packaging, the collection includes four items: Whipped body butter in a grapefruit scent that's only available during the holidays, a trio of scented hand creams, a gift box, and a tin, creating a swoon-worthy present for any beauty lover on your list.
Choosing Mickey Mouse as the theme wasn't a coincidence — it ties in with Feeding America, and the fact that this collection will help families and children gain food security. One in six kids in America do not know where they will get their next meal, which is partly the reason why the organization works so hard to secure and distribute four billion meals annually. Featuring one of childhood's biggest icons across Kiehl's charitable collection helps remind those buying the beauty products that their money will go to an important cause.
“I can’t think of a more fitting way to support children and families in need than with this collection featuring Mickey Mouse,” said Kiehl's president Chris Salgardo. “Disney has been bringing joy to children and families everywhere for generations, and we are honored that this collaboration will raise funds for those with food insecurities."
