As we see more and more people turning to online businesses to keep themselves afloat during this pandemic, I believe people who are well-off in life have a responsibility to support others even in the smallest way they can. Thus, we are writing another feature in hopes of passing on the message that we can give back to small local businesses even as we stock up on groceries and essentials that our families need at home.
Unilever and Shopee teamed up again to bring back the #BeautyThatCares sale – an annual campaign that aims to support small local businesses while giving consumers up to 70% off discounts on Unilever Beauty and personal Care products. Portion of the proceeds will go directly to Mano Amiga’s Skills for Success Grant and Training Program – an organization that aims to empower people and communities through education and development initiatives.
Mano Amiga helps microentrepreneurs, such as sari-sari store owners and online sellers, to start, sustain or scale their business. Through a monetary grant to get them the necessary funding, and training courses focused on essentials of entrepreneurship, online selling and finance, the organization aims to support small local businesses and to help them get back on their feet in the new normal. As a partner for the #BeautyThatCares campaign, Shopee will onboard these small businesses onto their platform as marketplace sellers which will empower them with more sales and growth opportunities, reduce their operational costs and reach new customers.
