Last year IKEA Kuwait had held the Soft Toy Campaign to donate one euro from each Soft Toy sold to UNICEF and educational projects run by Save the Children.
This year they are planning to re-launch the campaign but this time they will donate to the Bayt Abdullah Children’s Hospice to help develop the organization’s overall process. The campaign will run from 1st November 1 to 24th December and will donate 1€ for every soft toy sold at its store to BACCH.
So don’t forget to stop by and pick up a cute cuddly toy from IKEA next time you visit the the Avenues Mall and do something worthwhile for a good cause.

The Body Shop is campaigning against human trafficking in all their stores across the world in partnership with ECPAT. I spotted this at their Marina Mall branch where they have placed a petition box and forms that anyone can sign to pledge their support and you turn the form over and trace your hand.
