Most people have heard about Younique products, but that don’t know the backstory of why the company was created or the incredible cause they are supporting through their purchase of Younique makeup. Let me introduce you to the Younique Foundation – and no, I’m not talking about the amazing blemish-concealing product you apply to your face!
The Younique Foundation inspires hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by hosting them at a retreat, where they are uplifted by each other and learn skills that can help them find individual healing. Younique, the makeup company, was created in order to fund this very important cause. This is why when you hear presenters talking about how this company is more than mascara, we really mean it!
Last year I had the opportunity to tour Younique headquarters as part of an Elite leadership retreat that I earned in Salt Lake City. While there I participated in tying blankets that would be given to these survives during an upcoming healing retreat.
I do want to note that the two companies are completely different. Younique Products is not a part of the Younique Foundation or vice versa. They were started by the same people, and while Younique Products company donations a portion of their sales to the Foundation, but they are two completely different entities. Both companies want to uplift and empower women – but they do it in very different ways. One allows women around the world to sell makeup from home while feeling beautiful and confident, the other provides the tools necessary for abuse victims to begin the healing process.
If you, or a woman you know, had been sexually abused as a child, I highly encourage you to apply. You deserve it. Please check out their website for more details – http://youniquefoundation.org/
