“Shower YOU with Love” campaign aims to raise money to support WNY Healthcare Workers
You’ve probably heard of feeding the frontlines and fueling the frontlines. Now you can shower those same frontline workers who are working tirelessly day after day with gift packages thanks to Beauty Blend Kitchen and a slew of other collaborators.
Beauty Blend Kitchen, a local company that focuses on making natural skin care products recently launched the “Shower YOU with Love” campaign. This campaign is aimed to show appreciation and gratitude to our hometown heroes who are working non-stop during this pandemic.
Shower YOU with Love provides a vision of hope for Buffalo’s community. Donations will be invested into supplying frontline workers with gift boxes featuring wellness products from Beauty Blend Kitchen, Patterson Dental, Alethea’s Chocolates, and other local businesses. The first round of gift packages will be donated to the 120 employees working at the Buffalo General Hospital’s ICU department. This effort will be coordinated through the Kaleida Health Foundation.
Founder of BBK, Patti Green, and lifelong friend Connie Littlewood, wanted to come together to create something special for the heroic men and women in the community. Several years ago, Green’s father had passed away. In response to this, Patti sought out emotional support in the form of a running group, The Buffalo Snowflakes,that 25 of her closest friends joined. Today, Green and Littlewood felt the need to give back. Inspired by the emotional support Green received, Shower YOU with Love was created.
“Years ago the community supported me with true comfort and care,” said Green. “I felt it was my duty to give back what I once had received and what better way to do so in a fun, loving, and healing gift box. Connie was there for me and we decided to join forces!”
How You Can Help
The Beauty Blend Kitchen is actively seeking donations to help fund the gift boxes. There are three tiers of donation available which can be found here. Their goal is to provide gifts to 500 healthcare workers and essential employees including ECMC Foundation, firefighters, police officers and other deserving groups within the WNY community.
The BBK is talking with members of the community to determine other frontline workers who deserve the “Shower YOU with Love” gift packages. To find more information on the Shower YOU with Love campaign visit their website.
