Our first Victorain Flood Relief Clean Up Crew at Ian's house. Ian (in the acqua t-shirt) lived in a mudbrick house next to a parish church which was built in 1860. His mudbrick house is now a huge pile of rubble.
Here is what The Body Shop’s Flood Relief Family Pack and Flood Relief Men’s Pack looks like:
It’s a part of our initial commitment of $100,000 (RRP) worth of product donations and in addition to the $50,000 we are already allocating to getting staff volunteer clean-up crews in both Queensland and Victoria.
The Family Pack contains:
• Hemp Hand Protector
• Peach Shower Gel
• Peach Body Butter
• Papaya or Wild Cherry Soap
• Ice Blue Shampoo
• Passionfruit Cleanser
• Carrot Moisture Cream
The Men’s Pack contains:
• Maca Root Roll-on Deodorant
• Maca Root Face Wash
• Maca Root Face Scrub
• Maca Root Razor Relief
Today we're putting 500 of each of these packs together. Staff Volunteers will distribute them while they’re helping clean up flood affected, regional communities, in Queensland and Victoria.
We know it's not much for those who have lost EVERYTHING but hopefully it will make their day a little brighter. We’ve chosen practical products as well as a few of our popular ‘treats’.
Tonight the first wave is leaving our Warehouse, with a big thanks to Star Track Express (www.startrackexpress.com.au) who are transporting the packs for free up to Queensland!
