GLAMOUR gives back to the WHEAT Women’s Fund!
If you loved 100 Days of GLAMOUR, you’ll be excited to know that GLAMOUR keeps on giving!
When we asked our @GLAMOUR_sa Twitter followers who they’d share a 100-prize hamper with, we were overwhelmed by how many of them wanted to help those who really need some GLAMOUR in their lives – and so we decided to give something back to a very deserving charitable cause.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the WHEAT Trust Awards Ceremony and 14th birthday celebration as part of the Artscape Women’s Arts Festival in August. As part of our 100 Days competition, we hoped to help out several local charities by donating and giving away 100 GLAMOURous hampers, including hair accessories, GLAMOUR magazines, Nivea deodorant products and fabulous Skin Logic face masks to the girls in attendance. We partnered with brands like Skin Logic, Clover and and Cosmic Options to help put together our gifts while Jungle Oats generously donated R1000 to the Wheat Trust fund!
The awards ceremony was a GLAMOURous affair with a number of speeches made by the heads of local charities from around Cape Town. It must be said that the most rewarding part of the afternoon was seeing the smiles on the faces of the little girls from each charity organisation as the Wheat Women’s Fund treated them to a delicious lunch!
