Kiehl's, the 160-year-old New York apothecary whose shampoos, skin creams and other potions are now sold worldwide in such high-end stores as Barney's, has just announced its corporate philanthropy program.
Kiehl's Gives, embodied by the logo at right, is launching with a modest sum ($160,000) to get rolling — with the Pepsi Refresh-like twist that customers and brand fans can vote on worthy causes to receive a donation.

These three areas are also the focus of our new Kiehl’s Gives initiative."Continue reading...
