The holidays are often a season for giving, not just to friends, colleagues and family, but also to people in need. From companies who help the environment, support those less fortunate or donate to other noteworthy causes, we’d love to highlight our retailers at Melbourne Central who are giving back this Christmas. So if you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas, choose a gift that gives back.
The Body Shop
For every gift you buy from The Body Shop's seasonal gift collections, they will donate money to international Alert's Peace Play Project. The Body Shop and International Alert are helping refugee children to be children again with their game-changing seasonal gift collections.
The Peace Play Project provides organised, therapeutic play sessions to help traumatised children to heal and express difficult emotions. Sessions are determined by the moods of the children, and can involve playback theatre as a way of encouraging children to work through the trauma they've faced.
