THE FACE SHOP lent a helping hand to MAKNA (National Cancer Council) to raise fund and to raise general awareness during a 2 months campaign that ended on 31st October 2017. The Shop To Raise fund campaign was the pilot CSR project for THE FACE SHOP Malaysia. To support the Shop To Raise fund campaign, THE FACE SHOP came up with the theme, The Seven Wonders of The Therapy First Serum and the first serum is not just a skincare product. A bottle of The Therapy First Serum can offer up to 7 methods of usage, as a first step serum for higher absorption in the skincare regime, as a 7 times toning, as an exfoliation, as a mask, as aroma therapy, as a face mist and finally, as a stress reliever by point massage on the face.
MAKNA (Majlis Kanser Nasional or National Cancer Council) named after the Malay language word for “meaning” and its slogan “A Meaning to Life” is a not-for-profit social enterprise that helps cancer patients, regardless of background, race, color and location. MAKNA’s core activities are support service, treatment, research, create awareness and educational programs to educate and promote the understanding of cancer.
The Shop To Raise Fund campaign is supported by purchase of one bottle of The Therapy First Serum and received another bottle for FREE. The Therapy First Serum retail selling price is at RM149.29 inclusive 6% GST and each bottle of The Therapy First Serum sold, RM15 proceed will go to MAKNA and every customers that supported this campaign received a token. THE FACE SHOP sold 6,619 bottles and raised RM99,285.00 for needy patients & their families being aided by National Cancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA).
