Unbelievably, it’s 18 years since a group of beauty insiders started putting together special Christmas gifts for young women at Centrepoint. Still going strong, it’s time for the 2018 call out for products to help make Christmas morning a more special one for those who find themselves homeless.
I joined in on last year’s packing session – it’s really hard work! I was allocated the job of unpacking the mountains of boxes sent by generous beauty brands. I’ve never cursed brown tape so much in my life. But, by the end of the day, with all hands on deck, we had 250 bags full of gorgeous beauty goodies.
The bags are a complete surprise the Centrepoint residents – most of the young women don’t get anything at all otherwise and just knowing that they’re thought of makes a huge difference. This year, packing is on Friday 14th December so if you do have any make-up, skincare, hair care, fragrance, accessories or even promotion over-stock that you could give in multiples of between 50 and 250, they’ll be very gratefully received.
Delivery can be received 10th-13th December so just drop me a quick line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll give you the delivery details in full. All bags are delivered to Centrepoint hostels in time for Christmas morning. Beauty brands always step up to the plate for this – it’s a proud moment to see those beautiful bags all lined up and ready to make someone’s day.
