Corporate Social Investment 2015

At Skin Renewal we believe that we form part of a larger interdependent cosmos, from which we take and to whom we give on a daily basis.We believe we have certain responsibilities within this interdependent world that we live and operate in.We acknowledge that we have been and are continuously blessed with success as an organisation and as individuals.As such, we dedicate one day of the year to give back in the spirit of gratitude.

The business serves this cause by supporting the fundraising strategy in a variety of practical ways, by sacrificing the income of the day in order to release manpower the chosen organisation, by facilitating and providing resources for the individual fundraising efforts and by making a monetary contribution to the project.

As individuals, we give back by raising money and other contributions to the benefit of the chosen organisation, and by serving the organisation on the day with our time, labour and efforts.

Every year it awards us with the opportunity to give back, but it also gives us the opportunity to all get together, to have fun and to get to know one another on a different level.As such, the charity day is an invaluable part of our culture and it strengthens our team relationships and team spirit.
