F-to-F’s founder (Pam Koner) has joined the blogosphere! Aptly named “Pam-demonium,” the blog chronicles Pam’s thoughts and hectic life running an out-of-the-box hunger and poverty relief organization.

Together with bloggers from the beauty blog Pretty Connected, we’ve just held our first Share Your Beauty product drive giving event! Pretty Connected brought together professionals from the beauty industry to donate products and fill 100 tote bags with soaps, makeup, nail polish, hair products and more. The bags, along with 22 other boxes of donated products, were delivered to the Henry Street Settlement in New York City to be given to women in homeless and domestic violence shelters as gifts on Mother’s Day. Our goal is to bring a little beauty and dignity back into the lives of women who are struggling to overcome extreme poverty. Read more.
