Nearly One Thousand Schools Have Been Sent Our Book Thanks to LUSH Cosmetics

LUSH Cosmetics made a generous donation to help us send our children's book to NZ Schools.
January 16, 2019

The money that LUSH donated to NZAVS (as a Charity Pot Award) has paid for 968 copies of our children's book, The Six-Foot Rats 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 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!

Thank you LUSH for helping us educate Kiwi kids — Together we have taken one giant step forward towards ending animal experimentation!

The Six-Foot Rats was Written and Illustrated by Rebecca Gibbs.

With your help we can end animal experimentation in Aotearoa.
