Body Shop charity – Selling stock

 | 

Anita Roddick, founder The Body Shop, is selling $150 million worth of company stock and will donate the proceeds to charity, the New York Post reported Aug. 7.

“You can’t take it with you – you are a long time dead,” she said. I see it as my responsibility to give it away and I am completely serious.”

The cosmetics firm, which Roddick started in England in 1976 and now has 1,800 outlets throughout the world, aims to be ecologically and socially responsible.
