BeautyBloggers.org is the result of a collaboration between beauty bloggers and brands. In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to make a meaningful contribution to charity — but there’s only so much a charity can do with eyeshadow and lipgloss.
So we’re putting our (new) makeup on the auction block. Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders. Bidders anywhere in the world are welcome, and shipping is “free.” That is, the full amount of your winning bid will go to charity — the bloggers have agreed to donate the cost of shipping, in addition to the items themselves.
We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. Its focus is international, and it’s a charity everyone can support. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact. Click here to learn more about MSF.
We’ll be collecting payment through a secure page set up with Doctors Without Borders.
The 2011 auction begins at 8 am CST on Monday, November 28, and ends at 5 pm CST on Monday, December 12.
