Give and Make up !

Hello my lovelies today's post is one that i feel really passionate about. I would imagine by now that you will have heard of the Give and Make up Scheme.

The idea behind this important scheme is to help provide everyday essentials to Women and children who are in need in conjunction with Refuge and Women's Aid who protect the lives of thousands everyday.

I'm sure many of us can't comprehend the extent of abuse and heart ache that a lot of these women suffer. Many of them fleeing to a place of safety with nothing but the clothes on there backs.
I often think if circumstances were different, that person could of been me or you?

The things we take for granted every day such as deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc can be donated to help make the first few days much more comfortable for someone in this situation.

I am very humbled by this cause and have had a little sort out and here's what i am donating:

 Makeup bags
 shower gels/shampoo/deodorant/toothpaste/toothbrush/baby toiletries
 Body sprays/ sun tan protection/ bubble bath/ exfoliator
 Cleansers/moisturisers Face & Body/ Hair care
 Makeup/ Brushes/ Nail polish
More Makeup

The products don't have to be brand new. Anything you would give to a friend is perfectly fine. ( No used Mascara/lipgloss )

More details can be found at the Give and Makeup Web site found here
