Maintaining its long-standing tradition of supporting children’s charities, Kiehl’s, the venerable New York-based purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care, is pleased to announce a collaboration to lend a helping hand to children in need. With the shared vision to end childhood hunger in America, the Kiehl’s and Share Our Strength partnership will raise awareness though the sale of two NEW Limited Edition scents of its iconic Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter. 100% of net profits, up to $100,000, from the sale of each scent will be donated to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. With the support of partners like Kiehl’s, the No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in the United States by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. By connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, the No Kid Hungry campaign surrounds children with healthy food where they live, learn and play.
Having raised over $600,000 through previous charitable holiday initiatives, Kiehl’s invited 11-year old Sofie Shore, the daughter of Share Our Strength co-founder, Debbie Shore, to continue the tradition by designing its 5th Annual Limited Edition Creme de Corps Holiday label. 100% of net profits will support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s efforts to end childhood hunger in the United States.
For the first time ever, Kiehl’s sinfully addictive Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter will be available in two iconic limited edition scents: Grapefruit and Coriander.
This ultra-creamy, yet luxuriously whipped formula is quickly absorbed to help skin retain its natural moisture balance by preventing moisture loss. Ideal as an everyday body cream – especially after showering – the ultra-light formula contains a healthy dose of Beta Carotene and Vitamin E, known for their antioxidant benefits that help to protect the skin against damaging free radicals. Kiehl’s signature ingredient, Squalane, isahighly refined moisturizing oil derived from the olive that is extremely compatible with skin’s own natural lipids.
Sofie Shore is not like other 11-year-olds – she is an exceptional child. As Debbie’s daughter, philanthropy has always been a part of Sofie’s life and upbringing. Sofie has travelled extensively with Debbie to many Share Our Strength meetings and functions around the country, including the organization’s annual Conference of Leaders every year, since she was an infant.
While her more standard hobbies include art, soccer, music and making videos, Sofie has fundraised for the No Kid Hungry campaign through a lemonade stand in Maine, and has volunteered at a Share Our Strength Bake Sale in Washington, D.C. One major highlight for Sofie was helping staff the No Kid Hungry campaign table at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C.
“As we learned more about Share Our Strength’s effort to end childhood hunger in America through its No Kid Hungry campaign, we were immediately compelled to join in their efforts, as it aligns with our mission to support our nation’s children,” said Chris Salgardo, president, Kiehl’s USA. “As we continued to learn more about the organization from co-founder Debbie Shore and all of the work that her 11-year-old daughter Sofie does for the organization, it was an easy choice to ask her to design a label to further raise awareness and funds for the cause.”
