Garnier USA, in partnership with its France and U.K. global counterparts, announces its commitment to support UNICEF with a monetary donation of a minimum of $3.9 million from February 2017 through December 2019.
The company says it is committed to supporting UNICEF's work helping children in emergencies. "At Garnier, we're committed to building and sustaining communities by connecting people through acts that take care of our planet and give better futures to our next generations," said Ikdeep Singh, President of Maybelline, Garnier & Essie at L'Oréal USA.
Singh continues, "We are honored to partner with UNICEF to support the outstanding life-saving work they do around the world to help children in difficult circumstances. In emergencies, UNICEF uses Child Friendly Spaces to foster an essential sense of security, normalcy and trust, ensuring that society's youngest and most defenseless can continue to grow, flourish and connect with others in their community to build a brighter future together."
Garnier's donation will help fund UNICEF's work, including the School-in-a-Box Kit, which is one way the organization helps give children access to education in the world's most challenging locations. The hard-shelled, aluminum box has everything a teacher needs to carry on classes for three months for 40 students.
Garnier's support could fund up to 5,600 educational and play-based activity kits, reaching up to 300,000 children who need care and support.
