Project Beauty Share Wants To Know: Can You Spare a Square?

SPOKANE, Wash. - Project Beauty Share knows the beauty is in the giving. Year-round Project Beauty Share collects toiletries and beauty products and distributes them through local agencies to women whose circumstances do not allow them to afford these items. This fall Project Beauty Share is kicking off its inaugural TP Drive.

Help wipe out poverty in Spokane one roll at a time.

Toilet paper is a household item that so many of us take for granted each day. While it is a necessity, it is not covered by food stamps. Local shelters report that toilet paper is one of their most requested yet least-donated items. "While clothing and food drives are common, toiletries are often forgotten," said Tracie Swanson, Development Director for Our Place Community Ministries.

But it's easy to help. Support Project Beauty Share and the TP Drive in aiding local, less-fortunate women and families by donating rolls of toilet paper on September 10 and 11 from 9:00am-6:00pm. Donations can be made to the Project Beauty Share main collection center at The Make-Up Studio, located at 216 North Bernard in downtown Spokane. The TP Drive will benefit Anna Ogden Hall, Our Place Community Ministries, Our Sister's Closet, Hope House, Transitions, and Catholic Charities of Spokane's St. Margaret's Shelter and Childbirth and Parenting Assistance (CAPA) program.

 "People forget that it's the little things—toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, hair ties—that help us feel more human, more alive," said Rusty Barnett of Hope House.

 "Help families get on a roll toward healthy lives," said Julie Ernest, Manager of Our Sister's Closet. Can you spare a square?

 For more information on the TP Drive, please contact The Make-Up Studio at 509.455.7430 or visit www.projectbeautyshare.org.

About Project Beauty Share

Project Beauty Share is an initiative to collect beauty, cosmetic and toiletry products and distribute them through local agencies to women of all ages whose circumstances do not allow them to afford these items. Recipients of Project Beauty Share include the women of Women's Hearth (Transitions), Hope House Emergency Women's Shelter, Our Sister's Closet (YWCA), St. Margaret's Shelter and CAPA (Catholic Charities), Our Place Ministries, and The Crisis Shelter for Women & Children (Union Gospel Mission).

The idea started as a conversation between The Make-Up Studio's Julie Farley and a client during a makeup lesson. That conversation has grown into a charitable project benefiting less fortunate women across Spokane thanks to the generosity of fellow beauty lovers. If you have products to donate, would like to become a collection site or would like to volunteer, please visit www.projectbeautyshare.org.

 About Julie Farley and The Make-Up Studio

As the owner of The Make-Up Studio, located in downtown Spokane, Julie Farley knows how important it is for women to feel good about themselves. Everyday she works to brighten women's spirits through the use of makeup, lotions, soaps and sprays. However, Julie understands the simple truth that there are other women whose circumstances do not allow them to share in the ritual of beauty. She knows that, whatever the situation, the need for women to feel positive about their self-image must not be minimized. She therefore founded Project Beauty Share. Through this venture Julie seeks to provide safe and hygienic makeup to women-in-need to help them feel better and stronger about who they are and what they can do.

Julie has over 20 years of makeup experience, working as both a career model in Seattle and European markets and as a celebrity makeup artist. She is a professional with a heart who believes the beauty is in the giving.
