IKEA Good Cause Campaigns
Let's Play for Change Campaign 2017
This is the second year of the IKEA Let’s Play for Change campaign – a good cause campaign supporting children’s right to play. The IKEA Foundation realizes that many children around the world lack safe spaces to play and develop. By granting $53 (Є45) million to six partner organizations, including Save the Children, the IKEA Foundation wants to help some of the world’s most vulnerable children play safely and develop to their full potential.
Additonally, as part of the Let’s Play for Change campaign in the U.S., 100% of IKEA U.S. proceeds from 2017 SAGOSKATT collection will be donated to Save the Children. The SAGOSKATT soft toy collection is a series of wonderfully imaginative plush toys, designed by kids for kids. Specifically, proceeds will go toward Save the Children’s hurricane relief efforts in areas of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico devastated by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Funds will be used to help children and their families rebound and build their resilience following these natural disasters and will support child care centers and early education programs in their rebuilding efforts to enable them to support affected communities.
Save the Children and IKEA employees have visited our programs in Queets, Washington and Romania. These journeys took them to many different regions, and they had the opportunity to see the many facets of Save the Children programs and witness the impact IKEA is having in the lives of the children and their communities.
