Walgreens and Unilever are partnering to make it effortless to look gorgeous and provide access to water to women and children in developing communities. The two companies are once again joining forces with social enterprise ME to WE to help bring clean water to those in need through Give H2OPE to Others (#GiveH2OPE).
From July 31 through August 27, 2016, customers who purchase one of select Unilever TRESemmé, Suave, Caress or AXE products at Walgreens stores will help provide five gallons of clean water. With a purchase of two or more products, customers will help provide 15 gallons of clean water through the construction of a borehole, a 200-meter deep well, to the Kenyan village of Esinoni. Women and children travel up to 30 kilometers (or approximately 6 hours) per day to collect clean water for their community. This initiative will allow children to spend more time in the classroom and give women the opportunity to care for their children or work.
Last year, Walgreens and Unilever helped donate more than 17.5 million gallons of clean water to the rural Kenyan village of Kipsongol. Providing access to this basic resource has had a ripple effect on the community, helping propel the village’s social and economic progress for a lifetime.
