How your purchase helps:

All proceeds from this product will be equally divided towards the charities below, at no additional cost to you. 

  • Emergency Support for Afghan Women: Women for Women International  supports women in war and conflict zones. They are currently working to assist with evacuations of women's right activists, secure visas, provide women with solar powered phones, and give referrals to psychosocial supports. Classes are suspended due to safety, but will resume once it is safe to do so.
  • 9000 Meals (Ho Chi Minh City)The rising cases in Vietnam, where vaccination rates are less than 3%, has led to a month long lockdown in Ho Chi Minh City.  Many people have no way to earn money, no savings to buy essentials and some can't even leave their homes to buy food. Maison Chance Vietnam hopes to raise funds for 9000 meals for disadvantaged people. One meal is 20,000 VND (€0.75 EUR).

All processing fees will be covered by Literary Lip Balms. To read more about why we support these charities, click here.
