It’s been an exciting week! This month we celebrate the 1 year anniversary of my Share Your Beauty program! As some of you know, last year I joined forces with the poverty relief non-profit organization Family-to-Family and together we created Share Your Beauty; the first beauty donation program, where we organize drives and events to collect beauty and hygiene products and deliver them to shelters and teen centers in NYC and the tri-state area.
On Thursday night we hosted an event at the LeSportsac Flagship store in NYC, where guests filled 184 donated LeSportsac bags with over a thousand beauty products previously donated that month. The “bags of beauty” were then brought to Covenant House, a NYC childcare agency housing homeless and disadvantaged youth, where they will be given to teens and young women living in their New York City shelters.
Special thank you to LeSportsac for all of their continued support in hosting this event, donating bags and serving as our drop off center in NYC, and to ZICO coconut water, Bombay Sapphire and Bacardi for providing the drinks, and to my friends for coming out and donating.
Since our launch in February 2014, over 32,000 beauty products have been donated thanks to the generous support of individuals, brands and members of the beauty industry.
