We couldn’t think of a better way to set the tone for the New Year than by giving back to our community. Earlier this week, Beautycounter teamed up with Teen With a Dream, a charity founded by cancer survivor Spencer Harrison that works to enrich the lives of pediatric cancer patients. We met with children undergoing cancer treatment at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, one of only 10 children’s hospitals in the nation. The experience was truly heartwarming and rewarding; in addition to distributing gift bags and discussing healthy living strategies with parents, we sat down one-on-one with kids to help them decorate journals and boxes filled with their dreams and wishes. Our wish? To give back even more in 2015 by partnering with other inspiring charities—and ultimately help everyone live in a safer, healthier world.
