Giving something back to the world

Through Buy1GIVE1, Face & Body have made 125,711 life changing impacts, through medical care, to help people less fortunate than oursleves.1
Did you know that every time you have a treatment at Face & Body you are helping to support others less fortunate in developing countries access medical care?  
 
As Christmas is a time about thinking of others we thought it was a great time to share what we are achieving through the fantastic B1G1 initiative.
  
In 2007, a group of small-business owners had an idea. They asked, “What would happen if we all gave back just by doing the things we do every day?”.  Today that idea is a reality and the B1G1 (Buy 1 Give 1) initiative has more than 2,100 businesses from around the world helping to make significant impacts every day.
 
B1G1 is a social enterprise and non-profit organization with a mission to create a world full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small- and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities into everyday business operations.  
 
As a member of B1G1 we directly fund some of B1G1’s developments, innovations, and operations.  Our membership allows us to change lives through our daily business activities and gives us a higher purpose by making giving a part of what we do every day.
 
To date Face & Body have made 125,711 life changing impacts. This year our clients and team have helped provide:
  • 19,587 daily does of vitamin supplements to children
  • 30 days of medical eye care to elderly people in India
