A Little Extra Love on Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, I am joining forces with a host of other bloggers to make a real difference that goes beyond flowers, candy, and perfume.

Benevolent Blogging, the brainchild of the lovely Katie of Scentzilla and Seldom Nice Nowadays, is an informal group of bloggers joining together to raise awareness and money for selected charities on Mother's Day. For each comment left on Beauty Addict on the calendar date of May 14th, I will donate $1.00 to the Orphan Foundation of America:

"Orphan Foundation of America, which "has served thousands of foster teens all across the United States. From teaching youth how to balance a checkbook, write a resume, and apply for that first big job, to testifying before Congress and State Legislatures, OFA has long been a vocal champion of foster teens... Each year OFA and its scholarship partners award more funding and provide a stronger safety net for those pursuing post-secondary education." OFA also received a four star rating from CharityNavigator, which can be viewed by clicking here. In addition to financial donations, OFA also has opportunities for knitters to donate the products of their artistry. There is additionally the option for women to join the Pink Panel, run by The Benchmarking Company, who will donate $5.00 to a scholarship fund run by the OFA each time a woman joins or fills out a beauty survey."

So, if you're a regular commenter here, or a reader who has never commented, May 14th is the day to come out and voice your comments and opinions here on Beauty Addict! Please note that a comment on any post will count - at the end of the day I'll just count up the number of comments made from midnight to midnight Eastern Daylight Time. Hope to hear from you!
