New line of cosmetics and brushes to benefit pediatric cancers research and cure

By Regina Arnold

In the summer, Votre Vu started a new campaign; Color it Forward, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the research and cure of pediatric cancers.

French Accents is Votre Vu’s new line of cosmetics and brushes, and for every item purchased, Votre Vu will donate $1 to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in support of the 46 Mommas’ Shave for the Brave Campaign to treat and cure pediatric cancers. It is estimated that very day about 46 kids in America learn they have cancer and participation in a clinical trial is often their best chance for a cure. For every 5,000 French Accents products sold, 10 children are enrolled in clinical trials.

So far Votre Vu has raised $10,000 from French Accents sales with an additional donation of $11,000 with a goal of raising another $15,000 before the end of 2012. Color it Forward will continue to run until pediatric cancers are cured.

This beautiful movement also reaches out to the moms of children fighting cancer. The 46 Mommas represent all mothers who make the cancer journey with their child. Since life in and out of the hospital is exhausting, Votre Vu will donate five pickMEup paks for every $5,000 raised in French Accents sales to moms whose children are currently hospitalized.

Each pickMEup pak contains items that a mom might need during a hospital stay:
• Duette (lux hand crème and lip balm)
• Tout Le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gelee
• SnapDragon Beauty Beverage (1 bottle)
• Vu on Rouge Moisture Tint (Ma Cherry)
• Eiffel Power Mascara Charbon
• Cheveaux Heureux Shampoo
• Cheveaux Heureux Conditioner
• Tragic Magic Rescue Crème
• SnapDragon Body Crème
• Royal Treatment Organic Gentle Pearls Scrub
• Votre Vu Headband
• French Accents embroidered fleece blanket
• Spa socks

To get involved with this program, stop by this year’s Cowboy Christmas at the Mandalay Bay. Votre Vu will have their VuBAR where French Accents purchases can be made to continue to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer.

Cowboy Christmas at the Mandalay Bay
Dec. 6-15 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Bayside Exhibit Hall D, Booth #1049
