Continuing on the momentum, Thrive Causemetics is committed to growing donations from $350,000 to $1 million in aid through giving both much-needed funds and products to women impacted by the coronavirus, including healthcare workers on the front lines as well as a fund to aid women-owned small businesses and their employees affected by the pandemic.
Thrive Causemetics will make these donations through its Thrive Causemetics COVID-19 Response Fund.
"Thrive Causemetics was founded upon the idea of being Bigger Than Beauty—a beauty brand and philosophy that goes beyond skin deep by giving back. This pandemic has affected our world at large and we're all navigating these uncharted waters together. We have a one-of-a-kind community and platform that allows us to give back every day, and I want to do our part now more than ever," says Thrive Causemetics Founder and CEO Karissa Bodnar.
Bodnar said her home state of Washington has been hit very hard by the coronavirus, “so I have also personally donated $10,000 to The University of Washington Virology Lab where they are working tirelessly to bring their COVID-19 testing capabilities into the world, testing first responders, healthcare workers and the public to slow the exponential spread of the virus and save lives.”
"Continuing our momentum, Thrive Causemetics will be partnering with our customers to find other ways we can help and we are committed to providing over $1 million in aid. We believe that even when we're apart, we thrive together."
