The unofficial theme of this year’s “Beauty with Benefits” event was growth. The annual QVC fundraiser for Cancer and Careers welcomed an exciting new broadcast partner — HSN — as well as an influx of top-name beauty products donated for the cause. A total of 66 brands participated in the event, almost double the number from last year. The energy, generosity and partnership were evident — from the companies who got on board early and the social influencers who spoke about their personal ties to cancer and solidarity with survivors, to all of the shoppers who commented, shopped and shared, eager to do their part.
The larger-than-ever Gift with Purchase was yet another example of how this year soared to new heights. The “Brave Is Beautiful” themed tote, packed with 13 products and valued at a minimum of $208*, proved irresistible. The following companies have our deepest appreciation for enticing people to treat themselves, in support of Cancer and Careers. Gift with Purchase donors include Skinfix, ELEMIS, Perricone MD, bareMinerals, WEN by Chaz Dean, philosophy, Moroccanoil, Skinn and Korres, among others.
But the best gift is what “Beauty with Benefits” means for patients, survivors and healthcare professionals. “This event touches nearly everything we offer, from our online career coaching, to the grants we award to help people rebuild their professional skills, to our Regional and National Conference travel scholarship programs,” said Cancer and Careers Executive Director, Rebecca Nellis. “Year after year, ‘Beauty with Benefits’ allows us to reach as many people as possible. It’s the very reason why we can serve (and champion) our ever-growing audience, nationwide and long-term.”**
