If you haven’t heard of Give and Makeup, they’re a non-profit initiative whose sole purpose is to get everyday essentials into the hands of women and children who need them the most.
You donate your clean and lightly used (or new!) beauty products and Give and Makeup will liaise with charities Refuge and Women’s Aid to ensure that all items donated are passed on to women who are in need of them.

I’m putting my first box together this week and taking advantage of a VERY generous offer from BeautyBay.com, read on for details:
As part of their continuing commitment, BeautyBay.com will be offering FREE postage on all Give and Make-Up donations until 1st March 2011.
BeautyBay.com will supply a free delivery label to stick to all parcels, simply email email@example.com to receive a copy.
Note: these labels will have a 2kg weight limit so if you’re sending more than 2kg, please split in to suitable weighted parcels.
To say thanks for all donations, a 10% discount code will be sent to each person who sends a donation via these labels (it will be emailed across after the parcel has been received). If you have any questions, contact BeautyBay via firstname.lastname@example.org.
How unbelievably generous is that?
Living out in the sticks, I’ve always had the problem of not wanting to carry donation parcels into London with me when I travel. Where’s my excuse now huh?
I’m filling my parcel as we type (well, as soon as I’ve finished typing)… You have only a week left to take advantage of BeautyBay’s commendable generosity.
Go on, even if it’s just a little parcel… and see that little Retweet button at the top of this post (on the right), I’d flippin’ love it if you could press it and help spread the message!
