This week I attended yet another fun and meaningful event, a night of beauty makeovers, at Blushington Makeup Studio in West Hollywood that was hosted by the P&G brand Puffs. On hand was Tia Mowry who is best known for her starring role in the hit ABC/WB TV series Sister, Sister speaking on behalf of Puffs support of non-profit Dress for Success. Meeting her in person was definitely a highlight as was hearing of her passion for making the world a better place and to supporting the mission of a non profit women's community outreach group called Dress for Success.
Started by a 22 year-old law school student in Harlem, Dress for Success is a global organization that has been helping disadvantaged women reenter the workforce since 1997. Contrary to common public perception, providing ladies in need with new wardrobes both for interviews and to wear when they first land their new jobs isn't the only thing this group does. They also provide an invaluable support system of ongoing workshops for female members that hones interview skills in addition to offering career coaching and guidance for managing day-to-day challenges that arise in the workplace once they've landed new jobs.

With such a worthy organization hooking up with a well-known consumer product brand, I also want to share how you can help. The Puffs brand is donating $1 to Dress for Success for each virtual Puffs Kiss shared on Facebook until 2/24/12 up to a maximum of $100,000. You can help in raising badly needed funds for a worthwhile cause by clicking on the link below this image to spread some love to friends, family and loved ones while also getting Puffs to donate to Dress for Success on your behalf.
