On Wednesday, July 9th, 2014, I attended the Celebrate Life! Soirée’ presented by the Birthday Girl and the JED foundation at the Paramount Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Birthday Girl is a birthday apparel and lifestyle brand that was established by Mary J. Blige & her protégé, Starshell, who lost her sister to suicide at the age of 14.  The efforts of Birthday Girl are combined with JED foundation and the Love is Louder movement with the goal of breaking the stigma attached to mental and emotional illness such as depression, anxiety and body image issues.

The event was held to raise awareness to the mission and programs of Birthday Girl, and the celebrate life movement. Attendees enjoyed cocktails compliments of  Birthday Cake Wines and Ciroc, and had photos taken in an interactive photobooth.

Perhaps most poignant was when Birthday Girl Founder Starshell addressed attendees with the story of her personal tragedy, and encouraged the audience to share their own stories. One by one guests shared emotional anecdotes to a crowd full of strangers about losing loved ones and learning to celebrate life.

kiehels

kiehelsAs the holidays approach and we prepare to get together with our families to enjoy heaping plates on delicious food, it’s important to remember that not everyone is that fortunate. 16 million (1 out of 5) kids in America are currently living in households without consistent access to adequate food. And, many of these children rely heavily on school supplied meals for nutrition, making the holiday break a strenuous time when they will be without access to free and low-cost school meals.

In an effort to help end child hunger in America, Kiehl’s NYC is partnering with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign, which works to ensure children in the United States have access to healthy food, every day. 100% of net profits, up to $100,000, from the sales of Kiehel’s new Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter will benefit the campaign. For the first time, the body butter will available in two limited edition scents, grapefruit and coriander.

Through the campaign, just $1 can help connect a kid to up to 10 nutritious meals. The product is available for $38.00, so just ONE purchase can connect a kid to up to 380 nutritious meals!

The label art on the bottle was specially designed by Sofie Shore, the 11 year-old daughter of Share Our Strength co-founder, Debbie Shore. Sofie has been an integral part of the organization, traveling extensively with her mother so according to Kiehl’s USA president Chris Salgardo, “it was an easy choice to ask her to design a label to further raise awareness and funds for the cause.”

Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter is available in-store and online now. See below for details.

Key Formula Benefits:
• Squalane, Beta-Carotene and Vitamin E nourish skin
• Moisturizes and soothes dry skin
