Charity Pot was created in April 2007 to raise money for charities and other good causes. Every penny you pay goes to helping those groups and the work they do. In the last financial year LUSH (world wide) donated £340,000 to small organizations working in the areas of environment, animal protection and human rights. In India through the sales of Charity Pot, LUSH has the opportunity to be part of SoCare, a charitable organisation that shelters kids of life-term convicts. It’s their vision to establish a pro-active society for the children of life-term prisoners.
Yesterday, LUSH had a small event at the Garuda Mall, Bangalore, with some cute children from SoCare accompanied by two volunteers, Mr. Rao and Ms. Asha, and together they launched the Charity Pot, a hand and body lotion, 100% of the proceeds (excluding tax) goes to this charity. I got some pics from the event to share (posted some pics earlier here).

the lady in pink-violet is Ms. Sangeetha Kamat - one of the directors of Lush
the girl behind the counter is my fav SA, Sushmita.
|The Charity Pot was hidden under a cover on the table and the children were|
asked to search for this and lift the sheets off to reveal the lotion. I thought
that was a really cute way to launch the lotion.
|Loads of munchies - chocolates, samosas, kachoris, and potato chips - yummm :D|
(The other kids are searching for the Charity Pot on the shelves.)

Review in another week or two after I use this a bit, but I really never have read anything bad about Charity Pot. Lush puts in some of the finest ingredients to make this, and it is one of the more affordable body lotions at Lush. Couple with the fact that the proceeds support such a fabulous cause, if you plan to get a body lotion from Lush, I would urge you to give this a try :)
