It is estimated that a majority of the nations homeless consist of women and their dependent children. Nonprofits like Empowering through Beauty provide a gleam of hope in the lives of these women during some of their darkest times by providing them with the tools necessary to rebuild their lives through beauty.
Empowering through Beauty, Inc. is a non-profit organization, founded in 2010 by Tanisha Akinloye, that supports women that are domestic violence victims, unemployed, or otherwise disempowered due to depression. Empowering through Beauty, Inc. helps women build themselves up by providing five free of charge beauty treatments as well as products. These services allow women to be able to maintain their hair, build their confidence, and find their self-worth. Since 2010, Empowering through Beauty has provided over 700 beauty services and has recently launched its first beauty expo. Tanisha Akinloye has been featured across beauty and black media for her amazing work.
But what does this mean to you and how can you help?
As a natural, reformed product junkie, I am sure many of you have a product stash that is just gathering dust. You can take those products, box them up and send that donation to help Empowering Through Beauty further their mission. By donating your unused products, you will be lifting the spirits of women, inspiring them, and empowering them.
Your donation will be announced on the charity website, Empoweringthroughbeauty.com, on my blog Youngfabulousandnatural.com, as well as other media outlet channels via a press release.
The products must be:
Can be any size
Do not have to be natural hair specific
Can be more than actual hair products (i.e. combs, brushes, scarves)
If you would like to donate, please contact me at (973)776-4828 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org now through January 1st and follow the great donations on my twitter and instagram, @youngfabnatural.
If you are a business, big or small, that would like to make a monetary donation or an in kind donation, please contact me via email.
Thank you ladies in advance! You are doing an amazing thing!
