It’s that time of year again, when malls are filled with fabulous deals and mega offers to make shopping even more satisfying. Yes, the Dubai Shopping Festival is in full swing and credit cards are being swiped left right and center to cash in on super savings.
But whilst you’re filling your wardrobe with new dresses or treating your feet to some fancy new heels, why not take a moment to think about those less fortunate? The Syrian refugee crisis is one of the world’s biggest humanitarian catastrophes and has affected over 13.5 million Syrians, with over 3.4 million seeking refuge and shelter away from their home.
To play a small part in helping them, make sure that Kiehl’s is on your list of shops to visit this weekend and get your hands on the beauty brand’s best-selling products to aid Syrian refugee children in Lebanon. Kiehl’s Middle East has collaborated with Solace Foundation, a Lebanese non-profit organization that focuses on sustainable development and emergency response requests, and has kindly created a scheme that allows it to turn the money you spend into items to help Syrian children in Lebanon stay warm and protected throughout the winter. All you need to do is get yourself to the Kiehl’s Dubai Festival City store. For every AED 200 you spend, a blanket will be donated to a child, while for every AED 350 spent, they will receive an ‘In/Out’ set, which includes thick socks, a hat, and a scarf. What better reason to stock up on your favorite products? This is beauty that gives back.
