Here's why you need to be in Harlem, NYC, this week: to give back to the community and receive a free BUST magazine issue, obviously!
The “Women’s Drive: NYC Tour, an initiative dedicated to providing basic hygiene products to women in need throughout New York City, kicked off this past Sunday and we are more than excited!
The drive was created by Essence Beaute (@EssenceBeaute), a start-up digital content brand that aims to support, empower, and provide equal media representation for all women. EB was founded by our very own events intern, Nakia Kerlan (@NakiaKerlan) and her best friend, editorial makeup artist, Keyanna Banks (@Kbank.s).
The first stop on the tour is Harlem, NYC! The brand has partner up with Luxury Hair Lounge (@LuxuryHairLoungeNYC), located at 111 E 125th St, New York, NY, 10035, to host the drive. All products will be donated to Greenhope Housing and Win NYC, women’s shelter facilities in East Harlem.
Acceptable donations include (but are not limited to):
You still have a chance to donate between Tuesday, April 24th and Saturday, April 28th, during salon hours. Don't forget to pick up your free BUST Magazine issue while you're at it!
