Share Your Beauty!
119,806 Beauty Products Donated… and Counting!
With the goal of putting a bit of sparkle and dignity back into the lives of women and teens in crisis, the Share Your Beauty program taps into the huge surplus of beauty products generated by the beauty industry, by collecting unused products and delivering them to organizations serving women in crisis.
Partnering with PrettyConnected.com‘s Lara Eurdolian, Share Your Beauty brings together beauty professionals, bloggers, beauty publications and brands to create “Share Your Beauty” product drives and giving events in the New York City area. The idea behind the effort is to encourage a more sustainable beauty product industry while helping women who are homeless or victims of domestic violence to feel their best.
The program receives support from LeSportsac, whose corporate offices serve as a drop-off location for products in New York City.
