SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TATCHA® is honored to announce that the company has provided funding for 90,000 days of school and support for girls in developing countries through its partnership with Room to Read. The 'Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures' campaign began in January 2014, and provides one day of school and support for each full-size skin care purchase from TATCHA.com or through one of the company's retail partners. The figure is three times the initial annual estimates the company had projected when the 1 Purchase = 1 Day of School initiative began.

TATCHA has funded more than 90,000 days of school through the ‘Beautiful Faces, Beautiful Futures’ initiative that began in January 2014, which provides one day of school and support for each full-size skin care purchase from TATCHA.com or through one of the company’s retail partners. The figure is three times the initial annual estimates the company had projected when the 1 Purchase = 1 Day of School initiative began.

"We never thought that we would already be able to make this kind of impact so soon," explains founder and CEO Victoria Tsai, shown in the photo above with students in Room to Read's Girls' Education program in Siem Reap, Cambodia. "We're grateful to be a part of the important work that Room to Read is doing, and all of it is possible because of our customers. Now that I've had a chance to visit Cambodia and see first-hand how much the work is genuinely changing lives, it gives our work at TATCHA a whole new dimension of meaning."

Erin Ganju, co-founder and CEO of Room to Read, said partnerships like the one with TATCHA are a priority for the organization and necessary to scale the organization's impact on literacy and girls' education in developing countries.

"Room to Read is firmly committed to our partnerships with inspired corporations that support global education," said Erin Ganju. "TATCHA's investment in the next generation of leaders ensures that hundreds of girls are given the opportunity to succeed both inside and outside the classroom."

TATCHA co-founder and President, Brad Murray said he looked forward to even greater contributions as the Company continues to grow.

"One purchase at a time, our customers have demonstrated what a wonderful impact this model of giving can create," he said.  "With this as part of our company DNA, we're incredibly inspired by what we can achieve together as we grow."

About TATCHA — TATCHA LLC is a global luxury beauty and lifestyle company founded in 2009 by Victoria Tsai.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
