International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Join Lush and the IRC in making Refugees Welcome

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics has partnered with the International Rescue Committee to raise awareness of the refugee crisis and help welcome refugees who are seeking safety and a new start to the United States. Each day thousands of refugees fleeing from countries experiencing relentless conflicts are landing on Europe’s shores – most are escaping a brutal war in Syria.

For more than 80 years, the IRC has been responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping people to survive, recover and reclaim control of their future. We are the only international relief agency responding to the Syria crisis on all fronts – aiding hundreds of thousands of uprooted families inside Syria and neighboring countries, providing critical support to exhausted refugees who have reached Greece after a dangerous sea journey, and resettling refugees in the U.S., where the IRC aids newly arrived families from the Middle East and around the world.

The campaign will run Feb. 15-28 in Lush stores across North America. Here’s how you can join us in making #RefugeesWelcome:
