“Recent studies suggest that millennials have driven the social responsibility movement, with 70 percent of them reporting that they'll spend more with brands that support causes. Given that millennials represent $2.45 trillion in spending power, the notion of "giving back" may be very powerful for your company's sales, not to mention, it's overall purpose.”

Since 2012, Sweet Minerals has been working with various Ronald McDonald Houses to provide makeovers to the Moms of the children staying at the house.
During their stay, the Moms are so focused on their child and family, they don’t have a second to think about themselves. So each visit, consultants from Sweet Minerals setup in a room and teach Moms how to apply makeup; from beginning to end. What happens during that hour is magical. They forget their current worries of the day. They laugh together, learn, and share stories. They leave feeling beautiful. Most will tell you they can’t remember a time where they felt that way. They each walk away with a Sweet Minerals Flawless Face package, new skills, and new friendships. These Moms give of themselves – and to be able to give to them is a feeling that is beyond words.
