Since 2010, Kiehl’s Gives, the philanthropic platform of skincare company Kiehl’s, has raised $800,000 for children’s causes through its holiday initiatives.
Here in the country, Kiehl’s Philippines aims to make a similar charitable impact by partnering with actor Dingdong Dantes to benefit his YesPinoy Foundation.
According to the founding chairman, YesPinoy focuses on developing the Youth, promoting Education, and Serving the Philippines through its nationwide programs and projects.
One of its core projects is the One Chair, One Child program that aims to provide new school chairs for all the students of Estancia Central School in Iloilo. Estancia was hit by Super Typhoon Yolanda and suffered through an oil spill off their coast.
The said program was chosen as the local beneficiary of Kiehl’s Gives so that Kiehl’s Philippines will donate the net proceeds from the December sales of the brand’s no. 1 bestselling product, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
