Pink Changes Lives Pt 2

Ok, so I was going to tell you a wonderful story

I read about Mary Kay offering an emergency grant to a women’s shelter when the pipes broke and they were going to have to close the doors – but I can’t find the right link to save my life – you’re going to have to take my word for it! It happened, somewhere. Found it!

Which  leads me to the real topic today – Mary Kay Foundation’s other mission: ending domestic abuse. As someone who experienced abuse as a child, this is near and dear to my heart. Here are just a few of the things Mary Kay Foundation has done.

1) Every October,  they award $20,000 shelter grants – not just one or two – last year they gave 150, $3 million.
2) Mary Kay Foundation has links to downloadable brochures and hotlines who can help.
3) Mary Kay Foundation supports education programs like Love Is Respect – which helps teens understand the issues of dating violence and offers a text helpline.
4) Each year, Mary Kay Foundation surveys shelters so we can get a big picture of what is happening on the front lines.

So once again this week – please consider donating NOW to the Mary Kay Foundation – it’s Pink Changing Lives.
 

 
Another way you can make a difference is by purchasing Beauty That Counts® Journey of Dreams™ Eau de Toilette. When you do from May 16, 2014, through Aug. 15, 2014, $2.50 will be donated by Mary Kay Inc.to the Mary Kay Foundation – and I’ll donate my profit as well!

Forty Eight Million

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Forty Eight Million

 48 million

 

$48 Million dollars have been donated since the Mary Kay Foundation began.

Wow. Just think about that.

Every time you buy one of the Mary Kay limited products for Pink Changing Lives, or any purchase really, because I set aside a portion of my sales to donate – but every purchase you make HELPS!

  • You’re helping fund research for cancers that affect women.
  • You’re funding grants to domestic violence shelters in EVERY STATE.
  • You’re funding the loveisrespect campaign to educate young women on domestic abuse and date violence so we can help stop these cycles before they start.

It’s just a lipstick, or or a moisturizer, or a mascara, or a limited edition compact, but it’s so much more!

Thank you. Thank you for making a difference.  Thank you 48 Million times.

Think Pink,

Joann

loveisrespect – another way Pink does Good – Thanks Mary Kay!

I borrowed this info from the Mary Kay Facebook page! So proud to belong to a company that cares this much!

One in three adolescent girls in the United States is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October and as a part of the Company’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness and end dating violence, Mary Kay has awarded a $1 million grant to loveisrespect to support the nation’s first and only dating abuse text message helpline. Mary Kay is the lead sponsor for this “text for help” service designed to support young people in building healthy relationships and, ultimately, ending dating abuse.

The grant to loveisrespect is a component of Mary Kay’s “Don’t Look Away” campaign. Click the link below to read the press release!
