The money that LUSH donated to NZAVS (as a Charity Pot Award) has paid for 968 books to be sent to 968 different Primary Schools around NZ — These have just officially been shipped and they are on their way to schools around Aotearoa!
All of these books have a sticker inside saying that they were donated by LUSH so children all around the country will get to know about the generosity of this values-driven company.
We were lucky enough to have the help of our Humane Education Intern, Brooke Mooney, who packaged the books up for us. This took her hours to perfect — That's her in the top image with the pile of books that LUSH funded.
There are 72 Public Libraries and 2047 Primary schools = 2119 books needed.
We received $9,679.04 from lush = 968 Primary Schools have now been sent the book!
Since launching our crowd fundraiser we have made an additional $4095 which means we still have $7416 to raise before we have achieved our goal - We are nearly 70% of the way there!
People who donate to this campaign are also given the option to become a part of history and have their name written on a sticker inside the book too.
Thank you LUSH for helping us educate Kiwi kids — Together we have taken one giant step forwards towards ending animal experimentation!
