This year I was given an opportunity to do something different for the holiday season something more than wish lists, something that truly gives back. Makeup Blogger and in my opinion the “queen of swatchingKarla Sugar approached me about an auction site in which bloggers would donate beauty items that would be auctioned off and all the proceeds would go to a charity that all the donating bloggers agreed on. I of course jumped at the chance (I was actually the first blogger to donate) and so many others over 50 bloggers and even beauty brands followed and are participating in this wonderful event.

Here's more about the Auction and the Charity: is the collaboration of almost 50 different beauty bloggers and brands. In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to make a meaningful contribution to charity — knowing that the most effective donation to any charity is cash.

So we’re putting our makeup on the auction block. Winning bids will be donated directly to
Doctors Without Borders.

We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact.

Want to bid, it’s simple.....

Make a bid on any item(s) of your choice before Monday, December 20 at 5pm CST

I hope you win either a gift for yourself, or someone else but either way you’ll definitely be giving a gift to someone in need.
