The BeautyBloggers.org Initiative

There’s a lot going on today on the Internet – and if you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’m posting Cyber Monday deals every few minutes.

I’m also starting the second week of A Little Alytude‘s month of giveaways (today is a COMPUTER!) – and building up to some other exciting stuff.

But what I absolutely must share today is news of BeautyBloggers.org.

I’m part of this awesome effort, and it is the collaboration of almost 50 different beauty bloggers and brands. In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to make a meaningful contribution to charity — knowing that the  most effective donation to any charity is cash.

So we’re putting our makeup on the auction block. Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders.

We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact. Click here to learn more about MSF.

And all you have to do to help out is…buy stuff that we love that you will love too, at the time of year you’d be buying it anyway! Why WOULDN’T you check out beautybloggers.org right now?

Also, check out the list of participating donors:Here is the list of donors (it’s long, so I alphabetized and put it in paragraph format. Also, clicking these links will open them in a new window/tab):
