News>2017>july>Garnier x UNICEF

TODAY, ONE IN FOUR CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD LIVE IN AREAS PLAGUED BY NATURAL DISASTERS, EPIDEMICS AND ARMED CONFLICTS.

At Garnier, we’re committed to building and sustaining communities by connecting people through acts that take care of our planet and give better futures to our next generations. Today, Garnier announces a partnership between Garnier and UNICEF to support the outstanding life-saving work they do around the world to help children in difficult circumstances. 

Garnier USA, in partnership with its global counterparts in France and the U.K., announces its commitment to support UNICEF’s work helping children in emergencies through a global donation. Garnier will donate at least $1,300,000 each year from February 28th, 2017 through December 31st, 2019.

In emergencies, UNICEF responds to children’s needs and uses Child Friendly Spaces to foster an essential sense of security, normalcy and trust, ensuring that society’s youngest and most defenseless can continue to grow, flourish, and connect with others in their community to build a brighter future together. Garnier is supporting UNICEF to provide safe water, hygiene, nutrition, health and protection services to these children, along with creating safe spaces for children to play and learn.

Along with ensuring children's basic needs are met, educational and play-based activities in the spaces help to restore a sense of normalcy for children. Garnier’s support could fund up to 5,600 educational and play-based activity kits, reaching up to 300,000 children who need care and support.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION TO RAISE AWARENESS AND HELP GARNIER MAKE AN IMPACT

On July 19 at 4pm ET, tune into Garnier USA’s Facebook page where Karen Mlynarczyk, Garnier USA VP of Integrated Consumer Communications,  Dheepa Pandian, Senior Executive Manager at UNICEF, and Josephine Yurcaba, News Editor at Romper.com, will host an informative and emotional conversation about the partnership. During the live event, Garnier will share information on Child Friendly Spaces and showcase the contents of the School-in-a-Box kit, which is just one of the ways that UNICEF helps children in emergencies by giving them access to education in the world’s most challenging locations. 

In partnership with UNICEF, Garnier created a video to illustrate the hardships that children around the world face today and from now through August 31, 2017, Garnier Micellar Water, Fructis and Whole Blends products on shelf will feature on-pack messaging communicating Garnier’s commitment and donation to UNICEF to help create these kits.



We encourage you to share the Facebook Live segment and the video with your friends and family and on your social channels to help Garnier drive further awareness and make an impact for future generations.
