This week Marcia of Beauty Info Zone is doing double duty. She is both hosting Fashion Flash and launching our Valentine’s Day giveaway. This hearts and flowers holiday started off for lovers, but has evolved into a way to show a little love to the people in our lives. This week Fashion Flash bloggers are giving away more than $800 worth of jewelry, fragrances and beauty tools to show our readers and susubscribers how much we value their time and loyalty.
For example, Cindy of Prime Beauty will be giving away not one but two pairs of Peace and Love white tourmaline and silver chandelier earrings from Nancy Davis. This remarkable designer started a unique research foundation to fight MS. Over the past twenty years she has raised more than 30 milion dollars that led to the introduction of six new drugs for multiple sclerosis. Allison of Never Says Die Beauty will be parting with a Lucious Lips kit to give you the perfect V-Day pout.
I will be giving away two incredible scented candles from Bright Endeavors, an equally incredible organization that help disadvantaged young moms. Not only are profits put back into Bright Endeavors, the company itself employs these young moms to provide them both training and income. IMHO this is the just about the best way to use my money. Buying these candles for friends and coworkers not only says “I value you” to them, my money then goes to hlep other women– a total win-win.
We have received such a great response to products that gave back, that I am looking for other brands that have a similar sense of social responsibility. If you know other brands that give back, I would love to reach out to them for our Woman’s Health Giveaway in the spring. Happy Valentine’s Day!
