My oldest daughter may only be 8, but she has the biggest heart for people! It breaks my heart to hear her say she lays awake at night sometimes thinking about children who don’t have enough to eat. I have been trying to figure out a way the two of us could help more, and I found it.
We went into business together! A good friend of ours joined a company called Younique last spring and has had lots of success and met many new people. I held out until now because of past experiences with direct sales. After knowing what a burden Lauren has had on her little shoulders, I decided to act. I asked her if she wanted to sell makeup with me and donate 30% of our proceeds to Food for the Poor. Her eyes lit up! Now I get to spend more time with my little girl and help families around the world. What could be better?
Food for the Poor not only feeds millions of people, but also provide emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, according to their website. More than 95% of their donations go directly to programs that help the poorest of the poor. When we give to companies like this, we are being Jesus’ hands and feet. We are making a difference.
For those who don’t know, Younique sells makeup and skin care. They have only been around a few years but are growing by leaps and bounds. Their products are available in the US and Canada as well as Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. It was just announced that soon Mexico and Germany will be added. Younique’s products are naturally based and some are gluten-free and vegan. The bestseller is the 3D fiber lash mascara. It is awesome and even one coat makes my puny lashes look good! The lip gloss and eye shadow pigments are beautiful as well.
Younique seeks to uplift, empower, and validate women around the world. My prayer is that in these next couple years, Lauren will grow to understand that she can make a difference. Her age isn’t important, and neither are her skills. All that is important is that she is willing to be used by God. The sooner she understands that every little thing matters, the better off she will be. God has been using children for His glory since the Old Testament, and He is still doing so today.
If you are interested in purchasing anything or hosting a virtual party, check out the party we are hosting until midnight of February 12 at:
I never want people to feel pressured to buy, but I want to give anyone who is interested the opportunity to have great makeup. If you can not make a purchase at this time, please say a prayer that we will succeed in helping to feed the poor.
Just think about the families we can help together!
