Each year, Giving Tuesday sparks a global giving movement that has the power to transform lives around the world. But that’s just one day a year. In the spirit of giving year-round, and in honor of Mary Kay Ash’s legacy, Pink Changing LivesSM was born. The global cause marketing program reinforces Mary Kay’s on-going commitment to recognize women and girls who are changing the world for the better and support organizations worldwide who tirelessly work to improve the lives of women and their families.
Mary Kay Inc. beloved founder, Mary Kay Ash, said “the very foundation of this company is based on the premise of helping others.” Those words continue to guide the Company’s global philanthropic efforts.
The Pink Changing Lives global cause marketing program is entirely funded by a portion of the sales from Pink Changing Lives designated products in participating Mary Kay markets. Since 2008, the program has impacted more than six million women and their families by partnering with approximately 3,250 organizations around the world, donating over $17 million. Mary Kay markets partner with local organizations addressing critical needs in their immediate community and focusing on key areas like women’s empowerment, cancers affecting women, ending domestic violence, beautifying the environment and more.
Below are highlights from 2023 Pink Changing Lives initiatives around the globe:
