October is anti-bullying month and the beauty and fashion community is doing something about it. While we think bullying just happens among kids, look at what we do to our celebrities. If you read tabloids and devour articles about your favorite celeb's weight gain, cellulite, and acne you are part of the bullying. While I get you may still buy that magazine, you can help innocent kids get comfort when they are bullied. How? By shopping of course. Here are some fab products so you can do your part.
Secret Clinical Strength Mean Stinks Advanced Solid Antiperspirant/Deoderant in Fearlessly Fresh will donate $1 to Girls on the Run to help end bullying! You can check out all the great things they are doing with Demi Levato. I love this because with Secret you can stay dry but also help a great cause.
Soap & Glory has just launched its Proud Mouth™ campaign. Soap & Glory has partnered with STOMP Out Bullying™. Over the next year, they will be donating $1 of every Baby Doll Sexy Mother Pucker™ sold to help the STOMP Out Bullying™ Help Chat Line fund additional trained counsellors to help kids who are being bullied and who are at-risk for suicide. The goal is to raise $25,000 for the cause.
It's available for $15 at Sephora and will keep your lips looking shiny and beautiful.
A portion of the proceeds from the Rock Candy Cares collection will go toward supporting the vital initiatives of anti-bullying organization Leave Out Violence (LOVE). An especially important cause given the start of the new school year, anti-bullying campaigns are an essential way to teach children to treat one another with respect and understanding. The collection includes: Plum Puzzle Long-Sleeve Tee, Blue Puzzle Long-Sleeve Tee, Gray Heart Long-Sleeve Tee, Black Heart Long-Sleeve Tee, Blue "Do Something" Long-Sleeve Tee, Navy "Be" Sweatshirt, Gray Heart Tank. Available for $35 at Lester's.
Tanda Zap Acne Spot Treatment Device will give a portion of profits to STOMP Out Bullying™. The Tanda Spot treatment uses the power of three: it combines blue light technology used by dermatologists with sonic vibration and gentle warming to help clear your blemishes. It sells for $49 at www.tanda.com.
In addition to all this fun shopping, talk to your kids about bullying and be mindful of your own behaviour. Gossip and talking ill of people is a grown up way of bullying.
