Shopping is not only a global phenomenon, it’s also a very satisfying one!. Don’t you agree with me?. Especially with online shopping, things just got easier. Shopping for just about anything, from the comforts of your own home, is wonderfully convenient. Now consider this : What if you could be a part of a noble cause and donate to needy children around the world, while shopping for your favorite products?. Doesn’t that just elevate the satisfaction level involved in the shopping experience?.
Let me explain more. Essential Mall is a popular shopping site in UAE. What most might not know is that Essential Mall is a non-profit global and socially conscious online shopping network. Since 2014, they have partnered with UNICEF. They donate 100% of their net profits to UNICEF’s water aid mission, where UNICEF provides clean essentialwater to where the need is greatest.
The process is a very transparent one. When you shop on Essential Mall, for every $1 AUD (AED 2.83) you spend, 1.2 days of clean water are provided to a child by UNICEF. Other than spreading awareness about this mission, in this post I also wish to give you a code!. When you use this code, you will help double the social impact. So, when spending $1 AUD, you will be able to provide 2.4 days of clean water!. It creates a huge impact in the long run.
The social impact code is naznin
With the help of the below pictures, I would like to give you a peak into how this simple process works :
Suppose you decide to buy a ‘Redness FX Calming cream for dry skin’, which costs AED 91.81. On placing it in the cart, you can see under Social Impact that with this purchase you will help provide 38 days of clean water!
Now after applying my code, naznin, you can see that you are now helping to provide 76 days of clean water!. Can you imagine the social impact you create just by shopping!. You are not spending anything extra just for charity sake. You are just going about doing a normal and simple act as shopping but at the same time making a huge difference..
Sometimes it’s easy for us to not think about the world and It’s wide array of problems. It’s so very easy to get lost in our own world and our little problems. But did you know that one child in this world dies due to consumption of contaminated water every minute?. “I am just an individual and what difference can I possibly make” might be a question on your mind. But you, yes YOU, the one reading this right now CAN make a difference. Simply shop on Essential Mall. To date, Essential Mall has created over 220,000 days of clean water.
Essential Mall stocks more than 30,000 products and also offers between 10 – 90% off!. Popular brands on the site are Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Benefit, Dr. Hauschka, Clarins, Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy, Kevyn Aucoin, Lipstick Queen, Lancome, Max Factor, NARS, Laura Mercier and many more. Also, at the bottom of the site, you can find linternational links to the same site that serves in other countries such as US, Canada, India & more.
As of 21st April 2015, Essential Mall has stopped paid advertisements and depends on social volunteers to spread the word about their noble mission. When you use my code, other than doubling the social impact, I do not get any monetary benefits from it. Also, I am not paid in any manner for doing this post. I urge you to use the code naznin while shopping on Essential Mall and also, kindly spend a couple of seconds to hit any of the share buttons below this post.
