Give the gift of beauty

Chronic Beauty 2016

This is the season of giving. Earlier today I made a post about celebrating Giving Tuesday more than one day. This is the season of giving. and if we are truly going to celebrate the spirit of giving then it should include giving that will impact the lives of others in a positive way all year long so I am happy to welcome you to the 2016 Holiday Giving Series.

Our first feature is the Chronic Beauty Campaign , a program created by Lyme Warrior to raise awareness for those that suffer daily with chronic illness. The Center for Disease, Control, and Prevention website reports that “As of 2012, about half of all adults—117 million people—had one or more chronic health conditions.” Which means you or someone that you know suffers from some type of chronic illness. I have battled with Chronic Migraines since my earlier twenties so I know first hand how struggling with a health issue that the world can’t see impacts your life.

The Chronic Beauty Campaign offers you the chance get into the spirit of giving this season via The Chronic Beauty cosmetic bag or calendar which is available for  purchase via their website.

The  Chronic Beauty calendars features a different women battling chronic illness each month. Conditions featured in the calendar include: Cerebral Palsy, Severe Asthma, Lupus, Essential Tremor, Stroke, Diabetes, Chronic Migraines, Degenerative Disk Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Kidney Disease/Diabetes, Lyme Disease, and more.

GIVE! GIVE! GIVE!

This is the time of year that most people are running around trying to get the best deals to give the best gifts, but how about giving a gift that will last all year (and maybe beyond). We think about The day after Christmas Shopping, We sit in front of the computer for Cyber Monday and a few years back we were introduced to Giving Tuesday. I was traveling on Tuesday, (be sure to check out my upcoming Monday post) and in my travels I was reminded of giving at every stop.  During this holiday season I will be sharing various groups and organizations that will benefit from your giving. Stay tuned my feature will be this evening.
