Working Together Wednesday

It All Adds Up

Are you interested in giving back a little something and not sure where to start? There are so many ways that you can give and make a difference in the life of someone. 
This week an opportunity popped up and I wanted to help spread the word. A friend who owns Antionette's Revolution Cosmetics ( I will refer to as ARC) posted on her fan page about an opportunity to donate to a good cause. Racheal the owner and mastermind of ARC is collecting items and or donations to make some beauty kits to send off to an organization called GEMS. GEMS is an organization that helps young girls and women who have been the victims of sexual exploitation and domestic sex traffiking. 

Let me just give you a little background on GEMS and what their organization stands for. GEMS (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services) was founded in 1998 by a woman who herself was sexually exploited. Her organization helps girls ranging from the ages of 12 to 24 years old to see how beautiful they are and how much better their lives can be if given the support and understanding needed to turn their lives around. I encourage you to visit the site for GEMS and learn more about them. You can do so by clicking anywhere you see the word GEMS on this page. 

You can visit Antionette's Revolution Cosmetics fan page by clicking here ARC to see updates on the care packages she is hoping to send off in the next few weeks. She is asking for donations of makeup brushes, eyeshadow base, just about any other type of makeup needs. I know the plan is to send 50 individual beauty bags to these ladies, ARC is donating 250 samples as well as 50 full sized shadows from their own line that can be found by clicking here. Before you run away thinking 50 items is a lot I don't have that kind of money, you don't have to send 50 of anything. Even if you can send 1 or 2 things it is a great help. If you don't or can't mail items off to ARC you can donate money, or purchase items online and have sent straight to Racheal at ARC. I know my budget is tight but, I was at Big Lots and found single eyeshadow brushes for $.60 so I bought 10 that is only $6. You can find Elf brushes for $1 at some Targets and KMarts. Even if you can't help passing the info along to others DOES help. So let me give you the info to contact Racheal so you can ask any questions you may have, you can email her at Thank you for taking the time to read this post. 
ARC has provided a donate now button so that you can just click the button and donate any amount of cash you would like. I can't get the code to work to put it here on the blog. I've tried everything I know to do. If I get it figured out I will get it on here for you.

Remember the change we want in this world has to begin somewhere why not let it start with you. 


Peace, Love and Cupcakes

***I am not personally accepting donations towards the GEMS care packages. Please use the contact information above for Racheal of Antionette's Revolution Cosmetics(ARC) to make donations or for further questions.***
