It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and gift shopping is in full swing! Whether you’re looking for a special something for a friend, partner or secret Santa, finding the perfect gift that also gives back is an incredible feeling. You get to warm the heart of the person who receives it while making a real difference in the world at the same time—what could be better?

We know that finding gifts that give back isn’t always easy, so this month we’re featuring Lush partners that sell fab gifts to support their organizations.

Meet the International Rescue Committee

When crisis strikes, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) works quickly to save lives while supporting survivors on their journey to long-term recovery. Founded in 1933, the IRC helps restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing and self-determination for families uprooted by war or natural disasters in more than 40 countries, and resettles refugees in 28 cities in the United States.

Today, more people around the world have been forced to flee their homes because of violence and conflict than at any time since World War II. Now more than ever, refugees need our support. The IRC answers that call.

Gifts that give back

Women and girls in crisis zones face risks and inequalities at a rate greater than men. By purchasing a symbolic IRC Rescue Gift from the Lush Holiday Collection, you can help women around the world change their futures. Your gift could help deliver a healthy pregnancy and safe birth, provide a year’s worth of education for a girl, or help a mother start a small business to support her family. Honor the strength of women in your life this season with your purchase from the Lush Holiday collection.
