Aanifeira & The Body Shop Foundation United in a Cause

JPEG BODY SHOPAanifeira is extremely proud to announce that The Body Shop Foundation has chosen to support this association through their Dragon Fruit Lip Butter Grants Programme activity for Animal Protection.

dragonfruit-lip-butterThe Body Shop Foundation is a charitable company which operates closely with The Body Shop International.   It provides money to innovative, global projects working for a positive social and environmental change. Funding is through the sale of a charity product, Dragon Fruit Lip Butter, which is sold globally in the stores of The Body Shop and through various fundraising activities.  Three different grants programmes are covered addressing issues such as animal protection, human rights and environmental protection around the world.

During Body Shop in-store promotions, customers are asked to vote for their favourite charity.  The group with the most votes wins the majority of the profits from the in-store product, Dragon Fruit Lip Butter whilst the groups with the second and third votes receive a sliding scale of profits.

Dragon Lip Butter Product:  Buy our super-moisturising Dragon Fruit Lip Butter online or in-store and 100% of the profits will be split across our selected charities.  Buy now and enjoy luscious lips and a warm feeling inside. Look good, feel good, do good!


To date, Aanifeira has already received two donations through these store promotions, the funding of which will go towards increasing the number of boxes in the cattery.  The first phase of Aanifeira’s cattery (read up here) was opened in March of 2013 however, given that this initial stage was small to start with and that there was space to expand, international funding was sought to expand the cattery.  The increase in abandoned cats and kittens in Portugal contributes to a huge amount of pressure on resources at many shelters in this country.  With this invaluable help from The Body Shop Foundation, we at Aanfeira, can continue our work in providing a safe haven for these animals with the proper follow-up care that is necessary for them to succeed into an adoption scheme.

Work has already begun on the new boxes as can be seen below:-
