There are seven fundamental types of catastrophes. Beauty is not one of them.
as a beauty writer and former product junkie (greatly improved over the years, thank you), I’ve received and purchased lots of beauty products in my time. some of it I love and some of it I don’t bother trying because the shade is completely off or it’s just loaded with ingredients I’d rather avoid. as a result, these items get cast to the side never to be used. I tend to give most of it away to friends and family but I’d also like to help women that might need beauty products but aren’t able to buy any or could just use a little help.
I want to be sure the items are given to those who need them and not dispersed among employees or sold for profit. I’ve heard some stories where items are not offered to those in need but picked over by workers or sold in Goodwill stores and that’s not the goal. maybe a women’s shelter or assisted living facility could make good use of them. I’ve found a list of places in my area and will reach out to see what my options are.

do you donate beauty goods? know of any organizations to add to the list above?
