The Light-A-Wish campaign launched in late December 2020, called upon the SHEIN community to elect three causes that meant most to them. Over the course of the campaign over 10 million people visited the Light-a-Wish page and 2 million made a wish for their top cause. The SHEIN community chose, racial justice, at-risk children, and climate and as a result, SHEIN will donate $100,000 to each partner including NAACP (LDF), Together We Rise, and Ecologi. SHEIN will announce the next phase of its philanthropic program this May.
“Last year SHEIN Together helped unite 1.8 million SHEIN fans to raise awareness and funds for Covid relief. The overwhelming response that SHEIN Together received last year has inspired us to continue our philanthropic efforts and give back to our community. This year, we are thrilled to have such a diverse lineup of talent to help us celebrate the Light-A-Wish campaign.” Molly Miao, Chief Marketing Officer
