If you don’t know about the works of Make A Difference Makeovers, it is a beauty industry run programme that uses makeovers to boost self-esteem and confidence in young women who are homeless. This particular call-out is for Christmas; with 250 women across the London Centrepoint Hostels, many of whom will get absolutely nothing at Christmas, a small bag of beauty gifts is something very treasured. Make A Difference isn’t just about giving nurturing treats to homeless women; it’s also about a ‘mind makeover’ to teach life skills and a healthy sense of self, when the desperation of homelessness, and the journey to their homelessness has robbed them of all reason to be. So, rather important.
What Make A Difference are looking for is a few more beauty products so the recipients can get a generous gift that will last a while down the line. If you’re a brand and you have skincare/haircare or make-up products in multiples of 50 or more that you could pledge, please email me at Britishbeautyblogger@gmail.com and I’ll pass on your details straight away to the programme.
Time is of the essence this year, so it’s all needed by next Monday or Tuesday so the products can be put in special Christmas bags and delivered to hostels in time for Christmas morning.
