A Night To Benefit BE Beauty! May 11th

BE BEAUTY POSTER_WEB (1)

We’re excited to partner with The Clean Up Series to present a beauty-centric fundraiser event! Please join us for A Night to Benefit BE Beauty!

Benevolent & Enlightened (BE) Beauty’s mission is to raise the self-esteem of teen girls through its unique humane education program, which focuses on self-love, compassion to others, and caring for the planet. 75% of ticket sales and 10% of the night’s proceeds will go towards BE’s Summer Camp financial aid program. This exciting new Summer Camp was created for young girls to be shown an alternative lifestyle via ethical and sustainable living habits, through nature hikes, animal sanctuary visit, organic farm field trip, sharing healthy meals, and more, as a means of positive empowerment. Yes!

Shop for a cause at NYC’s all vegan shoe store, MooShoes! We’ll have vegan skincare by Meow Meow Tweet, 7-Free nail care by Karma Organic Spa (get a free hand massage, mini mani, or nail art too!), and hedonistic offerings from Haute Chocolate Brooklyn.  Find new non-toxic favorites at our makeup bar sponsored by Au Naturale Cosmetics and take home a goody bag with natural, vegan items carefully selected by The Clean Up Series!

Beverages and snacks will be provided by WTR MLN WTR, Ponycakes, and Erin McKenna’s Bakery! Bubbly will also be served to those 21+.

We’ll also have a fantastic raffle featuring items graciously donated by Pelle Beauty,  Haymaker’s Corner Store, Au Naturale Cosmetics, MooShoes, Meow Meow Tweet, Karma Organic Spa, Axiology, Fat and the Moon, The Fanciful Fox, Hush + Dotti, and Brooklyn Beach Hair!  

Each ticket holder will receive one free entry into the raffle. An additional raffle ticket can be obtained by ditching your toxic makeup and/or skincare items! Bring in one item or as many as you like. One additional raffle ticket per person. All items will be safely recycled.

Not sure what makeup to part with? Download the free Think Dirty app or visit EWG’s Skin Deep Database to check out how toxic some of your current favorites might be. Also consult with The Clean Up Series at the event!

There are a limited number of tickets available, so reserve yours asap, HERE on Eventbrite!

If you are unable to make it out, please consider donating to the work of BE Beauty. You can do so right from the comfort of your chair/couch/favorite coffee shop by clicking here!

We hope you’ll join us and our partners for a sensational evening of clean beauty, wellness, and the mission of empowering young women!
