I just found out about Burt’s Bees Hive with Heart Campaign to benefit Lipstick Angels, a nonprofit organization that provides hospital patients and seniors with individualized makeup services by skilled professionals in a supportive setting to uplift their spirits! Now really, isn’t that just an amazing cause?
When my grandmother had a severe stroke, it landed her in a wheelchair and paralyzed in over half of her body, including the whole right side. She was unable to do anything for herself anymore whereas before, she was the rock of our entire family and the second coming of Audrey Hepburn. Always dressed to the hilt and the hottest old lady I’ve ever met. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be a fashion blogger! So when she couldn’t even shower by herself anymore, it took a huge hit to her self esteem and she started getting depressed. Every opportunity I had, I would dress her up in her favorite clothes and I would do her hair and makeup. She loved it so much and appreciated more than anything else. Not only could I tell it really boosted her self confidence, but she expressed so much gratitude for my efforts. So this cause hits close to home for me because I know the benefit it can have on a person if they feel beautiful, even if it’s only for one day.
Founder & CEO of Lipstick Angels, Renata Helfman, strongly believes in the power of healing through beauty and wanted to spread her efforts nationally. She originally began her work at Cedars Sinai and recently launched at City of Hope in Los Angeles in March 2014. To kick off the Hive with Heart campaign, Burt’s Bees and Lipstick Angels partnered with award-winning actress Anna Kendrick on March 27th for a Day of Natural Beauty, hosting one-on-one beauty makeovers to City of Hope patients.
Hive with Heart will run through June 30th and during this campaign Burt’s Bees will donate two natural Lip Color products to Lipstick Angels each time a consumer purchases any two Burt’s Bees Lip Color products at www.burtsbees.com/hivewithheart to help the angels continue their mission to create a sense of hope through one-on-one attention that makes women feel good about themselves during the trying process of fighting illness or living with a chronic disease.
Visit www.burtsbees.com/hivewithheart to enter the Sunshine and Smooches Sweepstakes**, where you and a friend will experience the power of natural beauty first-hand. Winners will receive a 3-day trip to Los Angeles, a 2-hour make-up session with celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno, and a full line of Burt’s Bees lip color products.
