The Beauty Of Giving | Beauty With A Cause

If you are a beauty blogger or makeup enthusiast, you and I know that the amount of beauty products we own will probably last us a lifetime. No kidding, I de-stash mine every few months, give mostly to my equally vain mom or niece, sometimes I exchange unused or partially used to my fellow bloggers, other times I donate, other times they go straight to trash.

So when my fellow vlogger and ex-colleague from corporate pharma hundreds of moons ago, Joel from The Skin Care Addict, reached out if I can help spread the word regarding a skincare and cosmetic drive to support the beauty scholars from the Philippines via the Baclaran church, I enthusiastically agreed (by the way, he produced and directed the video below). I know I have readers and subscribers in the Philippines who can likewise help, either by word of mouth or donation or by simply re-sharing this post. Please watch the video (closed caption in English for international audience) to learn more about this wonderful cause. I am truly touched with the life story of one of the beauty trainers named Mylene.

    What a great job the Academy is doing! I usually donate locally as well (after the women in my family go through my spares).

    I donate unopened products when I can. I love to see places like this that are there to help those in need.

    That is a great initiative! I mostly give away my gently used and unused products to friends and family, and toss heavily used products for sanitary reasons. I used to donate to a local women's shelter, but they recently stopped accepting gently used products and anything not wrapped in the original plastic foil. All skincare must be brand new with a foil seal. They won't even take brand new products that normally come without one.

    I think it's wonderful that you're getting the word out about this initiative in the Philippines. What a help to change women's lives.

    This is wonderful. I donate unopened items to our local women's shelter. They really appreciate personal care items.

    Amazing intiative! I give away a lot of used products to friends but also do a big donation once to twice a year to the women's and teens shelters.

    I donate to the women's shelter. I never know what to do with lightly tested stuff tho. We moved away from everyone we know/
