Clinique has committed to help Happy Hearts Fund build it’s 100th school by the end of 2014 in order to honor the 10th anniversary of 20014 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Since the beginning of the philanthropic partnership, and with the aid of consumers in five countries, Clinique has donated a million dollars to Happy Hearts Fund – enough to build five schools around the world.
“Happy Hearts Fund’s mission is to rebuild safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters. We work during the gap period when children are forgotten and emergency response is complete. We bring hope and empowerment to generations of children and entire communities and are so thankful to Clinique, its Consultants and consumers for helping us achieve our mission,” says Petra Nemcova, Happy Hearts Fund Founder and Chair. “To date we have impacted over 46, 000 students and we are rebuilding schools in nine countries. With Clinique’s commitment to help us reach 100 schools by the end if 2014, we know a generation of empowered children and communities will fuel a brighter future for everyone.”
Earlier this month Clinique presented its latest selection of Gifts that Give Back benefiting Happy Hearts Fund this holiday season. The collection (which is available now at Clinique.com) was created for those who believe that education is the ticket to bigger and brighter futures and the greatest gift one can give. The Happy Hearts Fund helps to erect and rebuild schools in areas affected by natural disasters. On November 12, Clinique revealed its partnership with Happy Hearts Fund to emphasize the brand’s long-term commitment to children and education. Clinique and Happy Hearts Fund develop educational institutions for children around the world through this partnership. Clinique’s 2013 donations helped Happy Hearts Fund in rebuilding a computer center in Staten Island, New York following the aftermath of the Superstorm Sandy.
