Good morning! We have news, oh boy do we have news for you, and we can’t wait to share it so we are just going to come right out with it:
Our Glow With Pride event, a session with a makeup consultant, taking place this coming Friday, June 15th is now a FREE event. YES, you heard (read?) correctly: this event is now FREE.
“But wait!” we hear you say, “Wasn’t this a $30 for 30 minutes kind of thing?” And yes, yes it was. But here’s the thing.
When we introduced the idea last week, one of the things we mentioned, just kind of offhandedly, was that if you’re not someone who needs or wants to take advantage of the makeup artist one-on-one appointment but you’d like to make a donation to someone who would benefit, but might not be able to afford it, we would be happy to take whatever donation you would like to make. All funds are going to the Queer Trans Youth Collaborative, so it’s a great cause and organization, and we figured we might get a few takers.
What actually happened was our amazing, supportive, and beautiful Willow community stepped up in the biggest way possible, and through donations alone we were able to fund all 10 spots. As of today, there are still nine spots available throughout the day, and they are 100% free of charge.
Honestly, we are overwhelmed by this. We knew we had some wonderful people in our midst and this just proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
This is one of the loveliest gestures, and the fact that it’s happening during Pride…well, we really can’t thank you enough.
So please, please, spread the word that this fabulous event is happening, there are nine spots available – still 30 minutes each – for you or someone you know to get advice, ask questions, and find your perfect look – all in a safe, judgment-free, and supportive zone.
Again, thank you to our wonderful donors, from the bottom of our hearts. Removing the fee from this event also removes a barrier that might have been insurmountable for someone who could really use this opportunity, and that has got to feel really, really great.
Here’s to all of you!
As always, thank you for reading, and being part of our Willow blog community. We’ll chat again on Friday – have a great week, everyone!
