If you've been locked into the news (or social media), you have most likely heard about the state of emergency the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico and surrounding islands are in. Those on the ground have described the aftermath of Hurricane Maria as "apocalyptic," which is heart-breaking.
With more 3.4 million people without power, food, shelter and seriously strained rescue efforts, it’s safe to say the people of Puerto Rico are in need of your help! And, you can do your part by simply purchasing a tube (or two) of lipstick.
Thankfully, many (including a list of celebrities) are already donating necessities like food, water, blood, and first-aid supplies. But one beauty brand is attempting to use our love for lipsticks to help those affected by the record-breaking storm.
Sassy Lips — the brand behind some seriously stylish color-changing lipsticks — promises that from now until October 20, they will be donating 30 percent of all their sale proceeds to Global Giving, an organization providing relief to the survivors and victims of Hurricane Maria.
So, if you’re looking to make a difference, it will only cost you as little as $16 to $25. It's the perfect hybrid of being pretty with a purpose!
It's just one of many ways to help victims of Hurricane Maria. Let's get into the giving spirit and help get them back on their feet.
