The current crisis has presented unprecedented challenges for the entire world with countless establishments such as schools halting operations in an effort to contain the spread of the virus. According to data gathered by UNICEF, more than 180 countries globally have imposed nationwide closures on educational institutions, affecting not only the teachers and staff but also more than 1.5 billion children and youth.* In the Philippines, a country with limited internet capacity and availability especially in rural areas, even holding online classes is not a viable option for most educators, leaving children to put their dreams and their futures on hold.

In order to help students keep their hopes alive for receiving a proper education, Unilever has once again teamed up with Lazada for its Shop2Give Hope sale, in support of UNICEF Philippines’ education-related programs to enable 28 million children* get back to learning.

Starting July 1, 2020, beloved household brands such as Cream Silk, Dove, Closeup, Breeze, and Knorr, will be offering special one-day only discounts up to 70% off, so you can shop for much needed essentials, while also helping secure a child’s future. “The Shop2Give Hope sale is another way for us to reach out to our community and do everything we can to give them security in these uncertain times,” shares Benjie Yap, Unilever Philippines’ Chairman and CEO. “We’ve partnered with both Lazada and UNICEF in the past and this time, we’re focusing our donations and efforts towards education, because that is what we believe will help secure the future of our country.”

“We are thankful the collaboration with Unilever and Lazada has continued over the years and especially during these challenging times, when more help is needed to ensure the right of children to learning is protected. We are grateful for this continued support,” shares Isy Faingold, Chief of Education of UNICEF Philippines. “The proceeds from this initiative will boost our efforts to ensure children continue their education by providing learning resources, and developing online platforms and strategies for those children and families without connectivity at home.

Add your favorite products to your cart as early as June 28, and be treated to a special all-day livestream featuring the country’s biggest names, including AC Bonifacio, Kobe Paras, Luis Manzano, Ylona Garcia, Julie Anne San Jose, Alex Gonzaga and Heart Evangelista, and many more on the Lazada Live platform on July 1. The livestream will showcase not only special interviews and performances, but also exclusive giveaways attached to the Shop2Give Hope sale. “Lazada is pleased to be part of this meaningful collaboration with Unilever and UNICEF for the third year. We believe in providing the tools and resources to help our youth remain resilient especially as we enter into a new normal,” says Ray Alimurung, Lazada Philippines’ CEO.
