We were recently contacted by E.L.F. cosmetics to see if we were interested in accepting a shipment of 50 pallets of make up. FIFTY pallets! Unfortunately, we currently aren’t capable of handling that much product. However, we did agree to accept ten pallets, and look at the results! We are forever thankful for this extremely generous donation. The number of lives that will be positively affected by this donation is immeasurable.
Many thanks to my parents and to the young men at my church who were able to step up to the challenge of transporting the more than 100,000 units of makeup from the freight company to our garage. (Please see my previous post. We are in desperate need of a warehouse.)I am away at college so I can’t be as hands-on as I would like to be. Rest assured, though, that I make sure that every single item goes to a woman in need.
We have big plans for the distribution of these items. We have already donated to the Children’s Cancer Foundation and to Dress for Success of the Palm Beaches.

My elementary school principle now works as the Assistant Town Manager for the Town of Jupiter. We will be working closely with her to broaden Cosmetics for a Cause’s reach in our local community. Because of her position with the town, she knows the location of safe houses and is privy to other organizations that assist women. We are so thankful to partner with the Town of Jupiter in its effort to help its residents meet their needs. Makeup is certainly a luxury to a woman whose main focus is to feed her family. We hope to put smiles on many worthy faces because of this donation from E.L.F.
