Dermalogica And JoinFITE Team Up For Charity On Mandela Day

Posted: Updated:

Nelson Mandela one said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

And today, on his 94th birthday, organizations and individuals around the world are teaming up to honour him and his 67 years of activism for Mandela Day.

One such company that's "doing good" is one we at HuffPost Style have a particular fondness for -- Dermalogica. The company, which is now the world's most-requested professional skin care brand, is working with Kiva.org via their charity joinFITE to foster financial independence for women through entrepreneurship.

The goal of this organization is to raise awareness of the incredible community progress that develops when women have a sustainable trade; it also aims to help women get into or grow businesses worldwide.

Today, on July 18, Dermalogica and joinFITE are hoping to provide 670 women in the developing world with loans.

You can do your part by checking out the joinFITE website or by getting a facial at an International Dermal Institute spa -- the company will be offering skin treatments for only $67 during July, and 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to support these joinFITE microloans.
