Mary Kay Ash founded her namesake brand 50 years ago, with a little more than $5,000 and a dream. Today, Mary Kay, Inc. offers over 200 products, spans approximately 35 markets and provides hundreds of thousands of women the opportunity to start their own businesses as Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants. Not bad for a $5,000 investment.
Mary Kay Proves One Woman Can Make A Difference
Founded on the belief that one woman can make a difference, Mary Kay is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary by celebrating the brand’s entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirit in two beautiful ways:
In honor of Mary Kay Ash’s mission to prove that one woman can make a difference, Mary Kay has launched its One Woman Can campaign, complete with a beautiful special-edition Beauty That Counts® Mary Kay Compact Mini–a compact that features a golden Swarovski crystal “nestled amid a wave of ripples–a reminder that when you touch someone’s life, you create a ripple effect that carries far beyond that one act.” From January 16, 2013-May 15, 2013, Mary Kay will donate $1 from each sale of the special-edition Beauty That Counts Mary Kay Compact to loveisrespect.org.
In a larger effort to create ripples of change in communities around the world, Mary Kay will host One Woman Can™ makeover contests in 35 countries around the world,March 8-March 10, 2013, in the hopes of establishing a new Guinness World Record for the most makeovers provided over the course of two days. Additionally, Mary Kay will offer participants the chance to win a $5,000 donation to benefit charity–paying forward the Mary Kay tradition of making a difference with a little more than $5,000 and a dream.
Mary Kays Makes Turning 50 Look So Good
