In an effort to improve the lives of women and children affected by domestic violence, multi-platinum singer-songwriter and three-time Grammy nominee Jewel, as well as a team of 25 Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants have banded together to “spruce up” the backyard area of the Morning Star Sanctuary, a domestic violence shelter in the Nashville area.
The improvements were unveiled during a press conference on Tuesday, August 5. The event also served to kick off the second annual “A Kiss for Country” philanthropic campaign, dedicated to helping end domestic violence. The campaign asks celebrities and personalities to lend their lips to help “kiss domestic violence goodbye.” Through the auction of their lip prints and autographs on specially designed “Kiss Cards,” 100 percent of the proceeds will be dedicated to the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation’s (MKACF) programs committed to ending domestic violence. To date, MKACF has contributed more than $11.5 million to assist domestic violence shelters nationwide.
