This Giving Tuesday I received the following email from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics – I wanted to share it with you guys! I donated – will you? 🙂
|December 2, 2014Dear Olivia,
December 2nd is #GivingTuesday, a day to celebrate our nation’s great tradition of generosity and have fun boosting our favorite causes. #GivingTuesday demonstrates that we can do more with our wallets than just shop Black Friday sales, and that we don’t have to be multimillionaires to give back to causes and communities we believe in.
Be a part of the #GivingTuesday movement by supporting our work to make cosmetics safe for all your loved ones.
Did you know it’s legal to use cancer-causing chemicals in cosmetics like shampoo, lotion, mascara, and eye shadows? Outrageous, right? It’s completely unacceptable to us that cosmetics and personal care product makers think it’s ok to expose women, men, and children to cancer chemicals as part of our daily cleaning and beauty routines.W We believe we can change the cosmetics industry for the better and make the use of cancer chemicals a thing of the past.
This year, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics launched the Cosmetics Without Cancer campaign to pressure cosmetics companies to stop using chemicals linked to cancer in their products. We can win this effort, but we need your financial and political support.
On #GivingTuesday, make a gift that makes a difference. Together we can make Cosmetics Without Cancer the new industry standard!
Thank you. Your support means the world to us.
