It’s that time of year again! It’s the annual call out for beauty brands to donate and Make A Difference to the young women at Centrepoint London hostels. Many of them don’t get any gifts at all and none of them expect anything so a Make A Difference Beauty Bag really does come as a wonderful and welcome surprise.

The charity is in its 17th year – it’s all made up of people who work in the beauty industry, whether they’re PRs, brand based or journalists. They hold a big ‘packing night’ where they bag up all the donated products and deliver them to the hostels in time for Christmas morning. This is only possible thanks to the generosity of brands who donate year after year and here we are again, asking for your kindness. If you have skin care, hair care, make up, left over GWPs or promotions, accessories or even glossy mags in multiples of 50 (there are 250 bags to fill), then Make A Difference would love to have them.

If you’re able to help (packing day is 15th December so we’re on a time frame here) please email me ASAP at and I’ll put you in touch with the team straight away.
