Mary Kay Donates

February 14, 2006

Mary Kay Inc. will donate more than $1 million in products to 13 Atlanta-area women’s shelters in conjunction with the kick-off of its annual Leadership Conference. Mary Kay’s leadership Conference, entitled “The Power of Pink,” is comprised of two back-to-back business meetings for the company’s top independent sales force members throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“As a part of our ongoing efforts to end domestic violence, fund shelters and support programs that raise awareness of this crime, we are donating in excess of $1 million in products to women’s shelters in the Atlanta area,” said Anne Crews, Mary Kay vice president of government relations.
In addition to the donation, it’s estimated that the Mary Kay meetings will pump more than $10 million into the local economy according to the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
More than 11,000 Mary Kay independent national sales directors and
independent sales directors from the U.S. and Canada are expected to attend the conferences and, in turn, spend money with Atlanta-area businesses. Currently, there are more than 28,000 Mary Kay independent sales directors worldwide, many of whom who use the commissions earned from their Mary Kay businesses as their primary source of income.
