Amount Kiehl’s has donated to its three pillar causes to date
Kiehl’s is proud to announce its newest global program, Meet "Mr. Bones." The original "Mr. Bones" skeleton is the actual human skeleton used by founding family member, Aaron Morse during consultations to educate patrons on various ailments and how Kiehl’s remedies would address them. Today, "Mr. Bones" represents Kiehl’s pharmacy heritage, commitment to customer service, education and science.
With Meet "Mr. Bones," Kiehl’s celebrates its own icon by partnering with 13 iconic influencers from all genres including Grammy award–winning musician Alicia Keys, actor Zach Galifianakis and pop-artist Kenny Scharf. Each partner was given free reign to design and build his or her own "Mr. Bones," which will be on display throughout Kiehl’s New York metro area stores from June 2nd through July 14th. In exchange for their participation in Meet "Mr. Bones," a total of $200,000 will be donated through Kiehl’s Gives on their behalf to organizations supporting HIV/AIDS research, environmental issues and children’s causes worldwide.
