Bigger Than Beauty™ Spotlight: National Breast Cancer Foundation

Headquartered in Frisco, TX and with a reach across the country, National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has been supporting women affected by Breast Cancer through early detection, education and supportive services for nearly 30 years.

Thrive Causemetics was honored to chat with our friend Danae Johnson of NBCF about our Giving Partnership and how our customers play a huge part in their work!

How has NBCF’s partnership with Thrive Causemetics impacted the women you serve?
Thrive Causemetics donated to our organization, giving us the opportunity to provide women with a tangible expression of hope through our Hope Kit program and outreach events across the country.

Each item in the Hope Kit is thoughtfully hand selected to ease potential side effects and provide comfort to women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

How does Breast Cancer impact someone’s self-confidence?
Many women experience an initial shock after they are diagnosed. A common remark I hear is “I never thought this would happen to me.” There are fears of the unknown and unanswered questions. It’s hard to trust yourself when you’ve never walked down that specific road. Insecurities about body image are prevalent, but true beauty starts within. So surround yourself with those that encourage you and help you feel beautiful.

How are women impacted by donations made possible by the Thrive Causemetics Customers?
You are empowering women through the gift of high-quality makeup. However, it is so much more than makeup. You are extending hope just like NBCF by enabling women to recognize their value and worth, and allowing their inner beauty to shine.

What are some highlights from your partnership with Thrive Causemetics?
We had a makeover event at NBCF’s headquarters to help breast cancer patients feel beautiful. These women were in treatment and had been focusing on fighting for their lives for months. Our collective goal was to make the day all about them and empower them to see the beauty in their strength. The smiles and tears of joy when they looked at themselves in the mirror were priceless.

What does it mean to “Thrive” at NBCF?
Living a life of hope even when you are in a season of despair. Never giving up, even when the journey is difficult, and making the most of every day.

About Our Giving

Thrive Causemetics is proud to partner with incredible organizations across the country to bring the power of beauty to women overcoming remarkable challenges. Thrive Causemetics works with hundreds of partner organizations that empower women who are fighting cancer, surviving domestic abuse, emerging from homelessness, or adjusting to life outside the uniform.

    I was first diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma grade 3 triple negative breast cancer in February of 2021. I was given a little care package with some eyeshadow, blush and mascara. I was unable to use it for several months during treatment but now I can and I love seeing color back in my face. Sometimes all you need to feel a little better is to just look a little better. Thank you so much. I love these products ❤️

    Hello Thrive,

    2019 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. While on treatments I was so down, I remember one day one of the social worker hand me a gift bag. Inside the bag is a Thrive cosmetics. I didn’t realized it until today when I came across a demo on Thrive eye shadow on Instagram . I google it and it look like the one I have. I love it. Thank you so much for making me feel good and beautiful. And, supporting breast cancer patients.

    Thank you for supporting Breast Cancer organizations. I received some of your products at different breast cancer events and really loved feeling spoiled and pampered with your gifts. As someone who didn’t wear much makeup before cancer, it was fun to try new things. I felt great knowing that your products have safer ingredients than other brands. I really appreciated trying your products and plan on buying replacements when they are finished.

    Thank you Thrive for seeing your website. I am impressed with all that you are doing to help with breast cancer. I am a three-time survivor within three years. I was very positive and had breast, ovarian, and squamous cell. I was very blessed with a wonderful network of many warriors that instill more hope in my journey.
    I love your devotion and what you are represent.

    God Bless You!

    I am a three time cancer survivor. I had breast cancer in 2015, then had ovarian cancer in 2017, finally had squamous cell cancer.
    I was positive through my journey and I am happy to hear about your devotion to help women with cancer. This is the first time I have ordered your products and very excited to use them. God bless us all for what you are accomplishing. I am happy to help and be a part of your organization.

    Hello, we have an outpatient chemotherapy facility and have had beautiful donations in the past for our breast patients. I just wanted to inquire if we could receive some donations for our patients?

    Greetings! I just wanted to say hi and thank you. I am a triple negative breast cancer thriver and I just heard about your company and I ordered a few products, I can not wait to try the mascara and eye brightener. My eyelashes actually fell out 3 times due to starting/stopping/restarting a chemo protocol. I just paid a lot of money for extensions that I can not afford so fingers crossed that your mascara does the trick!

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2021. My surgeon’s office told me about Profile salon who provide services free of charge 2 days a month for women diagnosed with cancer. I received a thrive causemetics bag at my first appointment along with instruction on makeup application. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the service and the free cosmetics!! I had never been good at applying eye makeup and when my eyebrows and eye lashes began to fall out, proper application made all the difference!
    Thank you for all you do!

    Thank you for your support.

    I just attended a Casting for Recovery weekend in Vermont and was excited to try the products that you so generously donated,…and I’m hooked!!

    I just joined Dragonheart of Vermont which is an organization that gives survivors of breast cancer an opportunity to come together as sisters and paddle Dragon boats as a team. The first time I paddled with them it down poured. Thankfully I was wearing your mascara and eyeliner that was donated, it was perfect no “raccoon eyes”!

    I will be placing an order very soon.

    Thank you for your support

    Thrive is amazing to help people like myself feel ‘pretty’ again. I have Metastatic Breast Cancer Stage IV. I received a package of makeup from Thrive at a cancer retreat I went on in Utah. This is by far the best makeup I’ve ever used. The brow pencil, mascara and eyeliner are my absolute favorite. I hope to get some brow soon.

    I think it outstanding that your company contributes to women’s causes!
    Having been a breast cancer survivor myself I think it is just a beautiful thing you are doing. I think your products are a bit pricey but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. I’ll pay whatever it costs. It’s wonderful doing business with your organization.
    Keep up the good work!

    As a cancer survivor I can understand just wanting to feel like yourself or better, gift boxes are great. It’s the little things that make having comfort the best feeling ever. Life’s simple pleasures make the world of difference to someone that suffers.

    Amazing job and work!

    Thank you for all of your donations. I believe they mean a lot and are appreciated.

    Have you considered donating to fight the inherent racism in our country? I’m not exactly sure how you might do it. But too many people of color especially Black men have died at the hands of the police .

    A second suggestion would be incarcerated women who have children and want help in learning how to parent positively, especially when they return to their community.

    I know that there are good police officers, I’ve met them and even experienced their kindness.

    Thank you for your time and consideration!!

    I like to buy products that GIVE BACK. I’ve been going back & forth on the mascara. Seeing excellent review to poor reviews.
    I was diagnosed with breast cancer under going chemo & radiation.
    So bravo to your company for giving to Breast Cancer.
