Give and Makeup was borne out of an idea for a blog post.
I was going to write a post about essentials...that led to an idea about what your absolute necessities would be...that led to an idea about 'what if you had NOTHING'...and that led me to this page on the Refuge website.
My eyes locked on to 'Medicines and Toiletries' and I thought of the amount of product I had sitting in my cupboard and felt ashamed.
Each week two women in the United Kingdom are murdered by a partner or ex-partner.
One woman in four experiences domestic violence in their lifetime.
The average woman experiences domestic violence 35 times before she calls the police.
Refuge and Womens Aid protect the lives of thousands of women and children every day.
Give and Makeup is a non-profit initiative whose sole purpose is to get everyday essentials into the hands of these women and children who need them the most.
Thank you for your support.
