Deliciously zesty and super-moisturizing, our feel-good, do-good Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will help give you lips that are super soft and smoochable. With 100% of the profits going to charity, you can enjoy a warm feeling inside as well as luscious lips.
HOW’D WE DO?
Last fall, we asked you to “Vote With Your Lips” to raise money for animal welfare, human rights and environmental charities by purchasing a Dragon Fruit Lip Butter. So how’d we do? Together we generated over 255,000 votes for 3 U.S. charities including: WeStopHate, Big Cat Rescue and Sprout Up.
Here’s how the program works: 75% of the total profits from the sales of our Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will be divided between our three participating charitable organizations (excluding the cost of goods, transport and local taxes.). Of that, 50% will go to WeStopHate, the charity that received the highest number of votes. 30% will go to Big Cat Rescue, which came in second place and 20% will go to Sprout Up, which came in third place. The remaining 25% will go to The Body Shop Foundation’s global grants program.
Although the voting period is now closed, YOUR ACTION can still help to drive change in our world. The sales of our super-moisturizing Dragon Fruit Lip Butter will continue to help support our three great charity partners now through December 31st, 2014.
‘more than just an anti-bullying program, it’s a call-to-action to stop hate: stop hating on yourself, stop hating on others, stop letting others hate on you’
WeStopHate is a Realize Inc. non-profit program dedicated to raising self-esteem in teens (teen-esteem) through various social media platforms that engage teens to help each other gain confidence.
Why? Because teens who are happy with themselves won’t put others down.
Stopping bullying means putting an end to the lifelong, painful consequences that each victim suffers.
Raising teen-esteem creates a better world for us all.
WeStopHate is more than just an anti-bullying program, it’s a call-to-action to stop hate: stop hating on yourself, stop hating on others, stop letting others hate on you.

Receiving the majority of your votes (95,562 to be precise), WeStopHate will be receiving the largest portion of the funds raised. The donation will support WeStopHate’s mission to grow their in-school WeStopHate club program that gives help and hope to students, provides a safe and caring atmosphere at school and educates teens about the dangers of bullying all through a student organized process.
BIG CAT RESCUE
‘more than just a place that provides permanent care for big cats. It is a movement; a change in the tide of human perceptions.’
Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. They are home to over 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts. Their dual mission is to provide the best home they can for the cats in their care and to educate the public about the plight of these majestic animals, both in captivity and in the wild, to end abuse and avoid extinction.
