Giving Tuesday with Thrive Causemetics x Beauty 2 The Streetz

Thrive Causemetics is a legendary force in the beauty space, developing some of the most high-tech yet beautiful, functional, and easy-to-use makeup and skincare products. Not to mention all of their products are Vegan, 100% cruelty-free formulas containing proven ingredients without the use of parabens or sulfates. 

Thrive Causemetics is also Bigger Than Beauty™️: For every product purchased, they donate to help communities thrive. Each year Thrive Causemetics partners with countless Giving Partners, and they name all of their makeup products after powerful and inspiring women in the community. To date, they have more than 500 non-profit Giving Partners and in 2022 alone Thrive Causemetics donated over $135 in products and funds to these giving partners. (For more information on their giving initiatives, please see their 2022 Impact Report).

One of their local LA-based Giving Partners is Beauty 2 The Streetz, founded by Shirley Raines. Shirley is also a Brilliant Face Highlighter Skin Protecting Powder Namesake. Shirley will be the first to tell people that Thrive Causemetics has been one of their “day one supporters.” Thrive Causemetics and their CEO and Founder Karissa Bodnar have continually supported Beauty 2 The Streetz. Since 2017 they have donated over $1.4 million in products + funds to the organization and worked closely with Shirley to develop the Filtered Effects Protecting Primer SPF 37

On Giving Tuesday this year, Karissa Bodnar brought much of her Thrive Causemetics team, community members, and even other Giving Partners to Skid Row to volunteer with Shirley Raines and Beauty 2 The Streetz. Together they passed out hot meals, clothing, and personal supplies and even provided services such as haircuts, colors, and grooming to the community. This has been the first time Thrive Causemetics has volunteered alongside their VIP Giving Partner and it was a very special experience to witness.
