Unilever is working together with the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer, Boots UK, in a bid to raise £100,000 to help 100,000 children to build their confidence and resilience through WE’s educational programme, WE Schools.
Running between 30th August and 26th September 2017, exclusively in Boots stores across the UK. Customers will be able to stock up on their favourite Unilever products, whilst also making a difference to children’s education. From each product sale of Unilever’s best-selling brands: Dove, Simple, Lynx, Vaseline, Dove Men Care and Impulse, 4p will be donated to WE as part of their WE Schools programme in the UK.
WE is an organisation that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world locally and globally. Its educational programme, WE Schools, provides schools with free educational resources—from lesson plans and campaigns, to motivational assemblies and workshops—to inspire young people to take social action and become positive change-makers in their school, family and community.
Sebastian Munden, General Manager, Unilever UK & Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to be working together with Boots UK for the first time on such a purpose-driven initiative that really gives back to local communities and supports the ambition of our Sustainable Living Plan. The money raised through this activity will make a real change to the lives of over 100,000 children across the UK, and as a company we have committed to a minimum donation of £100,000, but hope this could be more.”
With Boots stores in every community across the UK, customers will be able to help support the WE Schools programme from across the breadth and depth of the country. Shoppers can also go online to boots.com/help-local-schools and input their barcode to find out more about the impact of the WE Schools programme across the UK, and nominate a school to get involved.
