Giveaway! Two Trilogy Everything Balms

Washed your hands today?  You’d  be surprised at just how crucial simple hygiene is to health. In Third World countries it’s life and death stuff, as research by Val Curtis from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has shown: basic cleanliness is crucial to the prevention and control of potentially life-threatening diarhoaea.

Fittingly, then, this year, natural skincare specialist Trilogy is donating all profits from the sale of its Helping Hand Wash throughout 2012 to Child’s i Foundation – a small charity making a real difference to the lives of abandoned babies and vulnerable mothers in Uganda. The campaign is on track to reach its fundraising target of £15,000 over the current 12 months.

Funds raised will be used to pay for the salaries and expenses of six social workers who reintegrate children safely back into their families or into adoptive families within six months of entering care. This essential support ensures that children don’t start their young lives in institutional care, thereby giving them a chance to thrive in life and fulfil their full potential in a family.  

What is Child’s i Foundation?

TV producer Lucy Buck set up the charity after being affected by a tragic incident:

‘For several years my life was divided,’ she explains. ‘I worked as a producer on high-profile TV shows and volunteered at an orphanage in Uganda.

‘In 2008, I buried a little baby boy called Abraham. He had been abandoned in a taxi park and died of meningitis in an orphanage aged just 16 weeks. In his short life, no one had truly loved him.

‘I decided then to quit my TV career to establish the Child’s i Foundation, with the aim of helping ensure Abraham’s tragic story wasn’t repeated over and over again.

‘Our belief is that every child deserves to grow up in a family rather than in an institution.  Every purchase of this product helps make this dream possible.’
