Huda and Mona Kattan, alongside various high-profile celebrities and influencers with beauty and wellness brands of their own – including Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury and more, have come together to spread awareness to help raise funds in support of all first responders.
BeautyUnited is a non-profit initiative featuring a collective of beauty and wellness brand founders who are focused towards donating protective gear, supplies and funds to the frontline healthcare workers in combat against the novel and relentless coronavirus.
Together they shared, “As we face this global health crisis with uncertainty, sadness and fear, we stand together. We stand in solidarity as one family of beauty and wellness brand founders. We are coming together to support doctors, nurses and all the healthcare workers on the frontline of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We are so grateful to these heroes who leave their families every day to take care of us, putting their own lives at risk to save ours. We thank you.”
They concluded, “As one community, we pledge to donate essential supplies, provide the resources that we have and fundraise for our first responders. Because, now is the time to be for our heroic first responders.”
COVID-19 has now infected over 2.2 million people and caused over 160,000 deaths worldwide. The healthcare staff on the frontline are overwhelmed each day with the increasing volume of coronavirus patients, and initiatives like BeautyUnited are seeking solutions and ways to support them with protective supplies, hospital equipment and funds during this critical and challenging period.
