GlaxoSmithKline logo GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is a science-led global healthcare company on a mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer.

Forming an ambitious global partnership in 2013, GSK and Save the Children set ourselves a goal of helping to save one million children’s lives. This partnership goes well beyond the traditional corporate, non for profit partnership fundraising model. Combining GSK’s capabilities in R&D, supply chain, procurement and vaccines with our expertise in working with the most vulnerable children, GSK staff across the country have become a leading force in fundraising for Save the Children.

Although we became global partners in 2013, GSK commenced support of our local education work in 2007 and since then, GSK has contributed over $1.9M to the work of Save the Children in Australia, including sponsoring the award winning M.Y.Van Youth-at-Risk program in New South Wales and  Mobile Playscheme Early Childhood Care and Education program in Victoria. This funding also supports the Emergency Health Unit, a network of health teams established across the world, ready to deploy experts in the field to prepare for and respond to humanitarian disasters.

In 2016 GSK established a collaborative partnership between Save the Children and Deakin University, the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership, with the purpose being to transform leadership in the humanitarian system through collaborative integration of research, education, practice and innovation. 

BVLGARI logoBulgari

Save the Children’s relationship with luxury goods brand Bulgari shows how a commercially-focused partnership can bring great benefits to both organisations, and significantly improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

First partnering with Save the Children in 2009, Bulgari launched a campaign of unprecedented ambition and scope, in which part of the proceeds from the global sale of a Save the Children jewellery collection – custom designed by Bulgari – is donated to support our programming.  The partnership has driven Bulgari sales, boosted brand awareness on both sides and raised over US$50 million for 1 million beneficiaries globally.

In Australia the partnership focusses on youth development via our Mobile Youth Van programs, to build upon their capacities and help support the most marginalised young people from deprivation to success.

Bulgari is investing in the future of children worldwide, where natural disasters, conflict, marginalization, disability and poverty hinder the right to education and a better future.

Reckitt Benckiser logoReckitt Benckiser

Reckitt Benckiser is a leading consumer health and hygiene company, dedicated to helping people live healthier lives in happier homes.  Since 2003, the partnership with RB has raised £30 million and has enabled Save the Children to improve the lives of 2.5 million people around the world – including 1.5 million children.

Through the groundbreaking Stop Diarrhoea program, RB and Save the Children are working to end child deaths from diarrhoea by 2020. Diarrhoea is one of the top five causes of death among children under five years old and in the world’s poorest countries, diarrhoea needlessly claims 1,536 children’s lives a day. 

RB has developed products aimed at preventing, controlling and treating this unnecessary killer, and working with Save the Children to educate children on long-term hygiene behavior change in some of the poorest countries worldwide including India and Nigeria. 

In Australia, RB's dedicated staff organise fundraising events and activities throughout the year to support the Mobile Youth Van, a youth-at-risk programin New South Wales.  

Reckitt Benckiser is also a proud key contributor and founding supporter of Save the Children’s Emergency Fund, enabling Save the Children to respond immediately to disasters around the world for the past ten years. 

IKEA logoIKEA

Our global partner since 2003, in November 2016 IKEA launched its new Let’s Play for Change Campaign, with Save the Children as one of its major partners. Let’s Play for Change builds on the success of previous IKEA good cause campaigns, which have raised €118.8 million, since 2003. IKEA, with support from IKEA employees and customers worldwide, will help us to prevent the unsafe migration of children in Ethiopia and Bangladesh by promoting protection, education and play for children on the move.

In October 2016 we signed a new Global Humanitarian agreement with IKEA whereby Save the Children will access to up to €2 million within 72 hours of a category-one disaster—an extraordinary emergency affecting more than one million children and causing widespread destruction. With this funding Save the Children will be able to quickly and efficiently help children and their families survive the unthinkable and begin to recover in the months that follow. 

IKEA logoTOMS

TOMS operates a One for One™ model: for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, a pair of new shoes is given to a child in need. TOMS and Save the Children have worked together internationally since 2011 when we developed a strategy that integrates new shoes as part of our larger health, nutrition, education, and humanitarian response programs. Most recently, TOMS have been providing footwear to our Australian Programs assisting many underprivileged children, with an opportunity to own their very own new pair of shoes.  Through their relationship with the Australian Olympic Committee, TOMS have also been active in taking the lead and having Olympians visit some of our Australian Programs throughout 2016. 

Mondelēz logoMondelēz
