We Donated Several Thousand Units of Make-Up
Thanks to the extremely generous donation from E.L.F. Cosmetics that we received in October, we were able to donate several thousand units of makeup and perfume to different charities in Palm Beach County during November and December 2015. You can see a sampling of the different charities we were able to serve by taking a look at their logos on our site’s hompage.
Because of the nature of our business, it isn’t possible to show pictures of the actual recipients of our donations. We need to to guard their privacy. However, here are some pictures of the donation process that we feel comfortable sharing.
We received over 700 of these kits that contained great products for lips, eyes, and nails. Kits like these are very helpful because they are self-contained and easier to distribute to women in shelters.
We received so many items to donate that we were able to form two new temporary board member positions: Junior Community Outreach Directors. The two girls we appointed to this position rallied their high school friends to undertake “Operation Christmas Stocking.”
They collected, filled and distributed over 300 stockings to teenage girls. Amazing, right?!
The best news is that we have more pallets of makeup waiting for us. The bad news is that we don’t have any room to store the products. We are in the process of trying to secure funding so that we can get a storage unit.
Our goal is to have enough room to receive the generous donations, sort the products, and make sure that we can match the products with the correct organizations. We’ll get there!
