No Makeup November is a campaign designed to raise awareness of human trafficking and funds to aid in the intervention and rehabilitation of those affected by it and to offer freedom from society's view of beauty by promoting self-confidence.
My sister and I started this project in 2011 in order to pursue beauty as it was created to be, not as flawed perspectives make it out to be. Over the course of three years, we have raised around $4,200 to give to the A21 Campaign - an organization big enough to rescue women from sex-trafficking and help them make a new life.
NMN13 has just closed at the beginning of this month. We were amazed at the social media presence this year, particularly on Facebook as we gathered 630 followers. The entire experience has, and continues to be, a process of growth, community, and vision.
I have been humbled by watching people's courage and generosity and am thankful to be a co-founder of this project. It has definitely become something greater that two little girls' dream to make a difference. It has become world change.
