Thrive Causemetics’ $1 Million Commitment and Ongoing Response to COVID-19


In these unfamiliar times, we hope that each of you are taking the necessary steps to keep you, your loved ones and your communities safe. It’s more important than ever that we stay connected as a supportive community. Here are the steps we’re taking at Thrive Causemetics to be proactive, do our part and give back to those in need and those on the front lines due to COVID-19:

We’ve taken proactive steps to flatten the curve.

We took swift action and established a remote work-from-home policy for all of our employees, equipping them with a full suite of tech equipment to make working from home comfortable and stable for them while we practice physical distancing. Our shipping warehouses have implemented all best practices recommended by the CDC and because of that, you will not experience any shipping delays with your purchases on thrivecausemetics.com.

Our Founder and CEO Karissa Bodnar donated $10K for COVID-19 testing.

Our Founder and CEO Karissa Bodnar personally donated $10K to The University of Washington Virology Lab, the first lab in Washington state capable of clinical COVID-19 tests. The University of Washington Virology Lab is working with the state to urgently bring their capabilities into the community, testing first responders, healthcare workers and the public to help save lives. The University of Washington is Bodnar’s Alma Mater in Seattle, and Washington (Bodnar’s home state) has, like so many parts of our Country, been especially affected by the Coronavirus.

We’ve committed to donating $1,000,000 in products and donations to COVID-19 aid.

Thanks to the support of YOU, our Thrive Community, we donated over $350,000 from one day’s profits on thrivecausemetics.com to 3 incredible organizations—Meals on Wheels, Baby2Baby and Feeding America—all of whom are providing meals and in-demand resources to some of the most vulnerable communities in need.

Continuing our momentum and building on our efforts, Thrive Causemetics is committed to growing our donations from $350k to a total of $1 million through giving both much-needed funds and products to women impacted by the coronavirus, including: healthcare workers on the front lines as well as a fund to aid women-owned small businesses and their employees affected by the pandemic. Thrive will make these donations through our Thrive Causemetics COVID-19 Response Fund.

Keep checking in to find out more details about our on-going efforts.

We don’t know what’s next, but tell us what you need and we’ll navigate these uncharted waters side by side. We believe that even when we are apart, we thrive together.

    Hello!
    I’ve been a huge fan of Thrive for a couple years now. I started out with the mascara and with each new product I try I continue to love it! As a nurse working on the frontlines since the beginning of this pandemic the only make up I’ve putting on is my mascara and my eyes are the only thing my patients see because of the gear I STILL have to wear each day. I have been asked millions of times if I’m wearing false eyelashes and they can’t believe it when I tell them “it’s my mascara!” It holds up so great after a very long, draining twelve hour shift! And I love that, during these trying times, you are one of the few companies that are filling orders in a timely manner!

    I just wanted to say thank you for recognizing healthcare workers. I have been an RN on the front line for over 25 years and never expected the acknowledgment of what we do. After this pandemic it is very nice and comforting to know that people really do acknowledge and appreciate what we do and how we work so hard to take care or our community.

    Every little thing helps and thank you for giving back to us healthcare workers on the front line!

    Sincerely

    Thank you for what your doing. I’m a officer at cook county jail and have many family and friends in law-enforcement throughout the county and I’m the military. We worked throughout the pandemic and to see companies giving back and helping I wanted to personally say thank you. Most of us feel Over worked under attack. So to see what your doing is very uplifting . Thank you can’t wait to receive my products I finally been waiting to order. It’s never about me. I always put myself last in the list. Taking the time to place my first of many orders!!! Thank You
    Sincerely

    I love how Thrive takes ACTION! It only takes one small step in the right direction to make a difference and I’ve never felt better making purchases than I do when purchasing Thrive Causemetics. You’ve found away to alleviate buyers remorse (genius) and allow me, the customer, to be a part of such a positive cause. I get to look good on the outside, while feeling good on the inside. A win-win! Thanks everyone at Thrive 💋

    I work at Lowe’s and have worked there throughout the whole
    Pandemic and we are now mask free and the people in our store are starting to come down with Covid even though they’ve been vaccinated and some people I guess aren’t vaccinated have come down with the virus in the past three weeks it’s unreal and of course they don’t have to tell us who it is or who we work around and it’s a little nerve-racking not knowing who it is and we’re were still working long hours and sometimes longer hours to take up the slack for other people who are not here or have not shown up to keep good customer service going this is not over this is a long war that we’re working against God help us all nobody knows how long this is going to take to be over thank you for all that you do to help us all thank you (covid that is)

    Thank you for your donations. I am a nurse in the ER and while having to wear a mask for 12 hours, I felt eye contact with my patients was more important than ever.
    I continue to use your mascara and eyeliner when I am working. It helps me feel good about myself and accents a key component of communication while most of my face is covered up.
    It may be a small thing, but when I look into the eyes of a sick and scared patient, I want them to see compassion and kindness in my eyes. Make up can help hide how tired I am to keep the focus positive. Thank you for helping me to stay pretty and positive during these difficult times.

    It’s been difficult on us nurses, but we live 2 different worlds. The balance of caring for others while also caring for ourselves. I’m so thankful for this makeup brand and all that they do to give back!

    Wow…! Not only to be obsessed with your eye brightening pencils and the gorgeous shades and lovely textures, i am even more impressed with your compassion and generosity with the way you give back to frontline workers. It’s been an unbelievably numbing past year – and i thought i would let you know that your kindness is truly heartfelt deep within.

    I am a Hoosier born. I am so happy to see this wonderful company. I am also a front line RN. I bring beautiful babies into the world. Being a labor nurse can be the best and worst job in a span of a few short minutes. Thank you for your support and as always “Thrive”. Jules
