A Common Goal: Limited Brands Supports Save the Children Canada
June 18, 2012
Limited Brands is proud to partner and support the commitment of Save the Children Canada, a leading organization for the empowerment of children. As part of our philanthropic initiatives, Limited Brands supports community programs that focus on nurturing and mentoring children and improving education. For that reason, we particularly commend the organization's support of the children of Burkina Faso, a land-locked nation in West Africa. Our partnership with Save the Children will aid in increasing access to appropriate, formal, quality education for children of the Burkina Faso region. Since 2007, Limited Brands has been independently committed to women and children in Burkina Faso through the purchase of organic cotton produced by the National Union of Cotton Producers of Burkina Faso (UNPCB).
About Save the Children Canada
Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need in the United States and around the world. Recognized for our commitment to accountability, innovation and collaboration, our work takes us into the heart of communities, where we help children and families help themselves. We work with other organizations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining our own independence without political agenda or religious orientation.
When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care and education and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day — poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease — and replaces them with hope for the future.
