I’ve always said when shopping is tied to a charitable event that makes it less a guilty pleasure.
After all, you’re doing good, right?
Well, we’ve just heard of a new shopping opportunity that will indeed benefit one of our local organizations, and it sounds like the classic “win-win” situation.
The Junior League of Central Westchester has teamed up with Sephora in the cosmetics retailer’s Values Inside Out program. It’s an initiative that “seeks to make communities across America more beautiful.”
What does that mean for us? We can purchase the YOU + SEPHORA cosmetics collection for $20 now through the end of the year at The Westchester in White Plains and $13 from each sale will be donated to this Junior League.
The first limited-edition collection features a clutch, glitter eyeliner, lip gloss and nail polish.
The local Sephora store has chosen the theme “Take your Green and Make a Dream,” a way to boost sales further and to donate to the Junior League’s causes, which include literacy, hunger and nutrition, a diaper initiative and its “Done in a Day” projects.
If you can’t get to the shop, don’t worry as your purchase will still do good: Online sales at Sephora.com benefit the American Heart Association.
