Happy spring time beauties!
September may just be my favourite month of the year. Not just because I can feel the chill give way to glorious sunny days, but also because this month I’m prouder than ever to be apart of this great industry of beauty..
Every year in September, the beauty industry hosts its annual dream ball. It’s always a glamorous event with amazing gowns, great food and entertainment. But behind the glamour and fun is a deeper meaning as the industry gets behind an incredible charity- the LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER FOUNDATION, helping cancer sufferers cope a little better by giving them a generous dose of beauty.
LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER is dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by cancer treatment. Women, men and teens participate in a practical workshop which covers skin care, make-up and head wear demonstrations, leaving them empowered and ready to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence.
It’s also LIPTEMBER – ‘Kiss Away The Blues’ campaign, the month where the industry rally’s behind the mental health and well being of women.
Which got us to thinking, what is it about September that springs so many charities based on beauty?
Is it the anticipation of summer where our thoughts turn to looking and feeling our best? Is it a renewed appreciation of life, a feeling of gratitude as the weather warms up that makes us want everyone around us to feel the same?
Whatever it is, we are glad it’s here and it has inspired us to join the rest of the beauty crowd and give to charities in support of beautiful women everywhere. We have just chosen the NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION as our ongoing charity of choice and are looking for other ways to give back – not just this September, but always.
You can help too. This month freezeframe will be giving $2 from every LIP INJECTION sold on their website to the CENTRE FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH in support of LIPTEMBER. Just by purchasing a lip injection you can help fund women’s mental health projects to make our world a happier place.
If you are lucky enough to have your health, why not take a moment to give thanks and give back. It will warm you up better that a spring day! Below are some other charities that have their day in the sun this month – may your spring be warm, healthful, meaningful and of course beautiful.
