Then she moved over to the marketing team, where she contributed to retail campaigns and creative branding initiatives. However, Erika’s most loved role at LUSH has been working as part of the Charity Pot team where she has the opportunity to help provide funding small grassroots organizations through the sales of our Charity Pot hand and body lotion, and engage staff and customers in their volunteer program.

Introducing 40 New Charities!

Charity Pot

Our Charity Pot team has been busy behind the scenes over the holidays, and we’re excited to announce 40 brand new partners to kick off the New Year! Each quarter, we welcome a new group of charitable organizations to the Charity Pot family in the areas of humanitarian efforts, environmental causes and animal rights. Since 2007, Charity Pot has donated $4.5 million to over 400 grassroots charities in 35 countries. This is all possible because of the generosity of you, our customers! Each time you purchase Charity Pot hand and body lotion, 100% of the purchase price is donated to Charity Pot projects.

One of the fantastic organizations we’ve welcomed this time around is Land is Life: they support indigenous communities around the world in protecting their lands, cultures and livelihoods. We’ve partnered with Land is Life to fund their work helping the indigenous people of the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, which struck on November 8th, 2013. The storm destroyed homes, made roads impassable and uprooted all of the coffee and banana trees which the people rely on for their livelihood.

In this terrible disaster, Land is Life used Charity Pot funds to purchase and transport immediate relief packages including food and fresh water to those located on the remote islands of Palawan, Panay and Mindoro. Charity Pot funds also purchased building materials to reconstruct homes, and boats to replace those lost in the storm. Although there is much work still to be done, Land is Life has supplied the people with the tools necessary to begin rebuilding their life and community.

This is just one of the many amazing organizations supported by Charity Pot. To read about all of our partners, or to nominate a charity that’s close to your heart, visit our Charity Pot Page.
