Have a Heart

I just wanted to do a quick post about some pretty amazing products from  m.powerment by Mark Makeup.  Here is a brief description from : 

"Lauren Conrad has teamed up with mark to launch the m.powerment campaign, a philanthropic initiative committed to breaking the cycle of  dating abuse and partner violence.  Women 16-24 experience the highest rates of partner violence and Mark wants to change that statistic.  Lauren will serve as the first Honorary Co-Chair of an expert panel to select and fund up to five outstanding organizations that are making strides in ending abuse in dating relationships."

Doesn't that sound like an amazing campaign?  Click here to see a video about the cause.  

Mark Makeup offers three items that you can purchase that supports this cause.  100% of the net proceeds will be donated to m.powerment!  

Check these out:

The Have a Heart Necklace $22.00:

Front design: Flower
Back design: Heart
16" L (adjustable, with 3" extender)

The Have a Heart Bracelet $12.00:

This goldtone bracelet features Lauren’s signature "faves" heart on one side and the m.powerment by mark.** emblem on the other. Coordinates perfectly with the mark. have a heart necklace. 6 3/4" L (with 1 1/2" removable extender).

Close to $250,000 has been raised and awarded to outstanding organizations that are making strides to break the cycle.  Click here to check out the 7 grant recipients.  There are some pretty amazing organizations posted there.

I thought my lovely followers would be interested in this cause.  For hardly any money we can all support this campaign to help put a stop to these terrible statistics.  Not interested in the jewelry or the lipgloss, but still want to help support this campaign?  Click here to donate.  Who knows some of you could unfortunately be a girl in need.  If so I'm here via email if you ever need to chat!  And here are some links that will offer you support as well.

I just think Lauren Conrad along with Mark makeup has realized there's a need for a change, and is stepping up to do something about it, which is fantastic.  And since girls ages 16-24 experience the highest rate, it seems smart that they would use makeup and jewelry, something that we all buy, to help support this cause.  What do you think about m.powerment?  

Anyway, I hope you girls are having a wonderful weekend!

I love Lauren Conrad, so it's so great to see her do a campaign like this. I know that domestic abuse is a really big issue, so I'm glad that companies understand this and want to help.
