Change is hard. In a span of nine months, our lives have taken a turn. We have all been living as cautiously as possible, accepting and adapting to change. But during these trying times, there are those who have been sacrificing more than what we could imagine.
Medical frontliners have been the unsung heroes of this whole COVID-19 pandemic. They work around the clock as they risk their own lives to care of the sick while all others are mandated to just stay at home. They have learned how to live with fear because at the end of the day, they have vowed to serve their countrymen.
Being in a mask and PPE suit all day gives you unnecessary discomfort. In fact, the dry and stingy feeling is not something that all of us can endure. That is why it’s something that we should all take into consideration.
Burt’s Bees Philippines, an all-natural skincare brand that promotes no animal testing, responsible sourcing and packaging in their products, is donating 1000 Burt’s Bees lipbalm to our frontliners in five hospitals around Metro Manila; The Medical City, St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City, Lung Center of the Philippines, National Children’s Hospital, and Cardinal Santos Medical Center.
“We hope that by treating our frontliners with as simple as Burt’s Bees lipbalm, we can spark hope and lift them up,” Burt’s Bees International Sales and Marketing Director for Southeast Asia Paulo Lao said. “This is our own little way of sharing joy, paying gratitude and respects to all their heroic efforts in saving and protecting Filipinos.”
Burt’s Bees lipbalm has all-natural ingredients that maintain our lips’ moisture and prevent it from drying which is a big issue that we face today because of wearing masks for a longer period of time.
Today we are all divided and hidden behind our masks. Although the smiles we have gone accustomed to seeing are not present, the essence of giving back and helping one another is ingrained in Burt’s Bees’ nature to care.
