Cool Planet, Sri Lanka’s premier retail giant recently celebrated Children’s Day at the School for the Deaf in Ratmalana.
This CSR venture initiated by Cool Planet brought on gales of laughter and created camaraderie between the 173 kids aged between six to eighteen years. The Cool Planet team which comprised the management and marketing team spent invaluable time with the children who eagerly participated in a host of activities, magic shows and games. In addition, Cool Planet indulged the children to their own beauty treatment session through the Hasini Gunasekera Saloons, which pampered them with face painting, pedicures, manicures and hair grooming.
The Principal of the Deaf School in Ratmalana, Samanthika Jayasuriya was overwhelmed at the lengths to which Cool Planet had gone to ensure the enjoyment of these gifted children and said: “We are immensely grateful to the management and staff at Cool Planet for making these children feel extra special today. We are aware that this gesture will be etched in their memory for years to come.” She further voiced her hope that Cool Planet makes this an annual event which would give these children something to look forward to.
“We at Cool Planet have always strived to brighten the lives of people and this magnanimous endeavour has been the highlight of our goal as it enabled us to create priceless memories in the hearts of these special children,” said Cool Planet CEO Rizwi Thaha.
