Giving Tuesday: You Give! Mary Kay Inc. Matches!

11-19-2015 10:17 AM

One Day. Two Causes. Big Results.

This year on Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, The Mary Kay Foundation℠ gives back!

We're asking you to help. For every dollar you give, Mary Kay Inc. will match the amount.

With your input, we've chosen two special organizations to receive the funds.

CancerCare®

We've all been touched by cancer in some way. Our Giving Tuesday dollars will go to the CancerCare® Touching Hearts Program, which provides financial assistance to cancer patients in need. Since its launch in 2000, the Touching Hearts program has given individual transportation grants totaling more than $4.1 million to nearly 30,000 women across the U.S.

Polaris

Many of you have told us that human trafficking is an important issue to you. It's easy to see why. The International Labor Organization estimates there are nearly 21 million victims of human trafficking globally. And 55 percent of those are women and girls.

While many of the domestic violence shelters we support also help human trafficking victims, we're reaching out to new organization on Giving Tuesday. Polaris is a leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery. In the United States, there is no official estimate of total number of victims. However, Polaris estimates it reaches into the hundreds of thousands.

We are never more like Mary Kay Ash than when we give.

As we enter the greatest season of giving, please consider making any size donation.

It could be your dollar that makes the difference.
