LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Thrive Causemetics, a Los Angeles-based vegan makeup company, donated $150,000 to three Southern California non-profits, the American Red Cross, Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation and Humane Society of Ventura County, to assist those impacted by the recent Woolsey and Hill Fires.
The donation came as part of Thrive's pledge to donate 100 percent of its profits on Nov. 14. to help those impacted by the Woolsey and Hill Fires and the Camp Fire, which has been California's deadliest and most destructive fire on record.
"When we saw the devastating effect of these fires, our Thrive community mobilized to make a difference," Thrive Causemetics Founder and CEO Karissa Bodnar said. "We pledged to donate 100 percent of our profits for all products on one day of giving. I'm so proud of the Thrive Tribe for coming together—in 24 hours, we raised $250,000, which will directly support women, animals and communities that are in tremendous need."
Since its launch, the company has donated its high-performance, cruelty free cosmetics to women in need through its "Beauty with a Purpose" program, which empowers cancer patients, homeless women, and victims of domestic violence to thrive.
"The generosity of Thrive Causemetics helps provide shelter, food and hope, making a compassionate difference for people affected by the destructive wildfires in California," said Elizabeth Penniman, Vice President, Communications at the American Red Cross.
"We are so grateful to Thrive Causemetics for their generous support. This gift will support the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department who work so tirelessly to respond to emergencies, fight fires and to protect our community from disasters," said Liz Lin, President of LAFD Foundation.
"From all of us at the Humane Society of Ventura County, we are deeply humbled and honored to be a recipient of a sizeable donation from Thrive Causemetics. Rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires has been a tremendous undertaking for us at the Shelter and this donation will help us with our ongoing efforts for months to come," added Greg A. Cooper, Director of Community Outreach from the Humane Society of Ventura County.
