LAUNCESTON, TASMANIA – Launceston based natural and organic beauty company, Merindah Botanicals, is committed to giving back and will donate proceeds to Be Hers Foundation to support the fight against human trafficking.
The company will be donating $5 from every order in March to the Be Hers Foundation. In addition, any order over $150 will receive a complimentary "Eco Makeup Cloth" as a ‘thank you’ gift for their support.
Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal industries in our world today. It's estimated that there are more than 20 million victims of human trafficking around the globe - most of them women and children.
Be Hers was founded over ten years ago and saved thousands of children, women and men from all around the world.
Be Hers exists to empower everyday women to make a stand against slavery, violence and exploitation. Slavery happens everywhere. Here in Australia and across the world.
It is estimated that between 300 and 1,000 people are victims of trafficking in Australia a year, which makes this an issue that needs continued attention and help from organisations like Be Hers.
Raising awareness is crucial to create pressure for change and to educate and empower people to fight against this injustice.
Through partnerships with anti-trafficking organisations, Be Hers works to rescue and rehabilitate survivors and create employment opportunities to empower survivors through their social enterprise, Dream Free.
“Slavery happens every day in every country and we are incredibly proud to be partnering with Melody and the Be Hers Foundation”, says Mel Driver, founder of Merindah Botanicals.
“You too can get behind this great cause by making a purchase on our website this month”.
