Simple Skincare granting $10,000 to extraordinary woman

Nominate yourself or a woman in your life By Mercedes Sanchez

simple skincare makers I love the idea of celebrating women. In college I even joined a sorority because I agreed with their beliefs in women empowerment. I’m sure you too can think of a couple of women who warrant to be praised for their hard work-- and now you can help them get the acknowledgement they deserve!

My colleagues at Simple Skincare are looking for the next Makers--- extraordinary women in local communities across the country to be featured on Winners will receive a trip to New York City to film their story and a $10,000 grant from Simple to continue making an impact in their communities.
