Spring time = Spring clean out!

Body Beyond Baby are supporting The Beauty Bank and they need your help!

The Beauty Bank are a group that provides women (and men) in need with the little luxuries in life that most of us take for granted. They are looking for donations of lotions and potions such as shampoo, conditioner, body washes, razors, tooth paste, tooth brushes, facial care products, pocket tissues, sanitary items, deodorants, candles, anything that would help someone feel a little special about themselves when in a position of need or distress.

If you are anything like us at Body Beyond Baby, our bathroom cabinets are full of unused gift packs, body lotions, hair conditioners and everything inbetween. We would love to help Jen at Beauty Bank out on her mission to help those in their time of need.

Where: Please bring anything you have of the above list to one of our classes. Alternativively, PM us and we will send you a mailing address.

Jen Armstrong the founder of The Beauty Bank’s Story:

“The whole idea of The Beauty Bank came from me receiving an anonymous gift of ‘fancy’ body wash three Christmas’s ago. I had just left my violent husband with nothing but my ten month old daughter, very few possessions and I was six months pregnant.

I was scared, broke and didn’t know where I was going to live or how I was going to cope. It may sound silly but that body wash made me feel appreciated and luxurious and gave me strength when I felt like giving up.

Three and a half years later I have two beautiful children, have two TAFE diplomas and one year from completing my University degree with great marks and am part of the Advanced Business Leadership program at UWS.

It’s still a tough road ahead but my children and I are safe and it had a lot to do with random people donating something that to most of us would seem inconsequential.”

Jen has been on an incredible journey and we would love to help replenish her ‘stock’ as the need for her wonderful gift bags is ever increasing in Sydney and Australia.
