Give Unwanted Cosmetic Samples to Charity

A registered Australian Not-For-Profit charity, Every Little Bit Helps (ELBH) collects unwanted hotel toiletries, inflight amenity kit, cosmetic and makeup samples, and gives back to those in need including the homeless, women’s shelters and underprivileged youth.

Accepting both corporate and personal donations, donations may include in-flight amenity kits with unopened socks, earplugs and body products, as well as hotel toiletry products such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, combs and toothbrushes.

The charity also redistributes cosmetic and make-up samples such as unwanted ‘gift with purchase items’ or discontinued product lines.

“This Christmas, approximately 105,000 Australians will be homeless. Or put another way approximately 1:200 Australians will not have a home this Christmas. Of those 44 percent are women and more than half are victims of domestic violence.

ELBH STORY 2“Every Little Bit Helps is excited to announce that this year we have been invited to partner with Sydney Nursing School, The University of Sydney to help create approximately 3,000 care packs to be given to victims of domestic and family violence throughout NSW.

“This is a huge undertaking that will see approximately 250 alumni, staff and student volunteers fill the Great Hall at the University where the packs will be made and then distributed by Every Little Bit helps directly to shelters and refuges just in time for Christmas,” says Katryna Robinson, ELBH Founder & CEO.

So whether you’re travelling, clearing out the beauty cupboard, doing a salon stock-take, or getting your warehouse in order for the New Year, consider how you can do you part.
