In a strong display of support, Rare Beauty, the renowned cosmetics line founded by Selena Gomez, has committed to assisting Palestinian children affected by the Israel-Hamas conflict. Expressing deep concern over the situation, Rare Beauty used Instagram to condemn all forms of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, highlighting the urgent need for humanitarian aid.
The statement expressed distress over the Middle East situation, emphasizing the impact on innocent Palestinian civilians, including displaced populations lacking access to basic necessities. Rare Beauty has taken proactive steps by pledging donations to reputable organizations working on the ground.
The post clarified that Rare Beauty will contribute to the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies – Magen David Adom, Palestinian Red Crescent Society, and Unicef, focusing on providing urgent care, medical relief, and resources for the affected children in Gaza.
This decision to provide aid emerged amid social media controversy surrounding Selena Gomez, with fans initially criticizing her silence on the conflict. Gomez responded a month after the Hamas attack, denouncing hatred and expressing her deep concern for the global violence, emphasizing the need to protect all people, particularly children.
