Project: Beauty (Bloggers) for Good

As you know, many of us in the beauty realm have an apartment full of products.

It’s not that it’s not all awesome stuff – it’s just there’s no time to use it all, and what may eventually go to waste on our end can be really appreciated by someone else.

But this week is Thanksgiving, and I’ve long considered the idea that taking what feels like excess lotions and shadows to me to a local domestic violence shelter could make a world of difference to someone. Having soft hands or being able to wear pretty lipstick when everything else is in shambles around you can really help you to maintain your humanity in the worst of situations. And we all hope that by giving a little of what we are so lucky to have, we can make someone’s Thanksgiving today just a little bit better.

So, Shannon from A Girl’s Gotta Spa (linked below) came up with the idea for all of us to join together, fill up giants bags and boxes of our stuff, and bring it to a local shelter today at the same time, in our various corners of the world. Perhaps in some little way we can make a difference!

Here is the list of everyone participating–everyone is posting about it this morning, in honor of Thanksgiving, so it’s a great time to go visit each of our blogs and get to know everyone a little better!
