Thrive Causemetics Announces $25 Million In-Kind Beauty Donation


The cosmetics company will celebrate its fourth anniversary by making its largest-ever donation of the brand’s vegan, cruelty free makeup to women in need across the country

Thrive Causemetics, a Los Angeles-based vegan makeup company, announced a $25 million product donation—the largest in the company’s history—to celebrate its four-year anniversary.

CEO Karissa Bodnar founded Thrive in her Seattle apartment in 2015. Giving has been at the heart of Thrive’s work from day one—when Karissa sold her first set of lashes, she immediately donated a pair. Since then, through its “Beauty with a Purpose” program, the company ensures that a donation is made for every product sold.

“Everyone who purchases a product becomes part of our mission to give back—and after four years of building a compassionate community, we’ve created a movement to empower women through beauty,” Bodnar said. “We are proud to partner with incredible organizations across the country to bring the power of beauty to every woman, no matter what challenges they face.”

This gift will benefit over 50 non-profit organizations that empower women who are fighting cancer, surviving domestic abuse or emerging from homelessness. The beauty brand is also asking members of the #ThriveTribe—Thrive’s enthusiastic customers and supporters—to nominate future recipients.

One of the recipient organizations, Mary’s Place, is from Bodnar’s home state of Washington. The organization offers women and families a safe place and a path out of homelessness.

“We are very excited about our partnership with Thrive Causemetics,” Mary’s Place Executive Director Marty Hartman said. “Women experiencing homelessness often feel invisible and worthless. We’re grateful to Thrive for bringing hope and for helping our women regain their self-confidence and thrive!”

Thrive’s fourth anniversary giving campaign comes on the heels of a major donation to support those affected by the California wildfires last fall. Thrive Causemetics practices responsive giving—with partners receiving what they need to best accomplish their goals—whether it’s high-performance products or much-needed funds.

About Thrive Causemetics: Thrive Causemetics is an independent, female-owned beauty brand that creates high-performance vegan cosmetics and supports a community of giving. All of Thrive Causemetics’ products are free of parabens and sulfates, in addition to being 100 percent cruelty free. Through its Beauty with a Purpose program, every product purchase results in a donation to help a woman thrive.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
