Cancer: it’s a big part of my reason for bringing Beautycounter into my life and business. I've watched close friends undergo radiation and chemotherapy for cancer, and one of my colleagues lost her battle with cancer over a year ago. I’ve seen children undergo surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy only to have the cancer come back years later and go through it all again. My own mother always had to be careful, because she regularly had cancerous skin cells and I have so many memories of her going to get skin lesions burned off when I was growing up. As a kid I was sick too and I spent a lot of time in the hospital. While I was there I met a lot of little friends who had cancers. I wish I could say my story is unique, but the fact is that Cancer touches all of us.
Since 1975, childhood cancer has increased by 20%, and the halls of the hospitals I spent time in 30 years ago have more kids than ever before receiving treatments. Although all cancer is devastating, this is just one statistic that hits home for me.
Let’s Stand Up. This month I am taking serious action and I urge you to join me in partnering with Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) from now until July 31st:
There are many ways for you to get involved with my mission of education and fundraising.
1) If you have been interested in trying Beautycounter's safe products, shop my Social on a Mission in the month of JULY. I'll be donating my commissions to SU2C (and Beautycounter corporate will be matching those donations up to $50,000!): http://www.beautycounter.com/en-ca/taliacamozzi/social/107253-Social+on+a+Mission
2) Make a direct donation through my SU2C fundraising page (Beautcounter corporate will also be matching donations up to $50,0000):https://www.crowdrise.com/su2c-team---…/fundraiser/taliamichelle
3) Share the event I have created on Facebook with your friends and family! You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/704057709757863/
I'm using this fundraiser as an opportunity to educate and empower those we care about to make safer choices. I know that many of you know so much, and together we can know even more. I'll be posting educational resources on the event page to raise awareness about exposure to chemicals linked to cancer in our personal care products. If you have information you would like to share, please do.
So be sure to check out the event page regularly for valuable information to help you and others you care about make safer choices in your personal care products. You can't know what you don't know and I am passionate about raising awareness.
It’s perfectly legal for companies to use harmful ingredients linked to cancer in the products we use on our skin every single day.
BEAUTYCOUNTER’S MISSION IS TO GET SAFER PRODUCTS INTO THE HANDS OF EVERYONE.
We deliver on our mission in three important ways: through our beautiful high performing products, education, and by advocating for more laws protecting health. This campaign with SU2C is an example of our mission in action. We believe that preventing exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in the products we use every day is simply the right thing to do. Your contribution to SU2C, through either purchasing Beautycounter products or donating directly will accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
When we unite in one movement, we are UNSTOPPABLE.
