Help fight against domestic violence with the Great Glam Giveback

Many people know the statistics—1 in 3 women will suffer abuse in their lifetime, and New Mexico ranks 3 rd in the country for women killed by men. However, many of us aren’t sure how we can help.

Working as a celebrity makeup artist, Danielle Bridges had many exciting opportunities to work with models at New York fashion week and well-known artists like T.I., 21 Savage, and Gucci Mane. She also published work in Playboy and Vogue Italia and groomed higher-ups for major companies such as AT&T. However, like many other domestic violence survivors, she would not have been able to come this far without the support of her community.

As a native New Mexican, Bridges always knew she wanted to work with a local charity to help other women. After Rochelle Fetters, a domestic violence advocate and the producer of “Breathe,” introduced her to Haven House, she felt inspired.

Bridge’s mission with the Great Glam Giveback is to draw on the passion and kindness that runs through the beauty industry to provide resources for the community they serve.

As beauty professionals, they help people from all walks of life look and feel their best. Their shops, salons, and stores are vital gathering places in our community. The Great Glam Giveback is a unique fundraising drive that brings the beauty professionals together to support survivors of domestic violence.

The Great Glam Giveback will run from November 25, 2019 – January 5, 2020.

They are collecting new underwear, bras, and toiletries for women and children. This fundraiser will be a kickoff event that they hope will lead to additional support for Haven House and many other charities year-round.

The donations collected in are salons and businesses will go directly to Haven House. Haven House is the only domestic violence shelter for women in Sandoval County.
