NEW YORK, April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, #1 global beauty brand L’Oréal Paris announced its 2019 Women of Worth nominations to the public. Inspired by the iconic L’Oréal Paris tagline “Because You’re Worth It,” Women of Worth honors the intrinsic beauty and worth of 10 everyday women making an extraordinary difference in their communities. Now in its 14th year, Women of Worth has elevated the stories of local heroes who represent the passion and spirit of women everywhere who selflessly volunteer their time to serve others.
Now through April 30, 2019, you can nominate women who are transforming their communities and fostering positive change. 2019 Women of Worth Honorees will have the chance to receive up to $35,000 in donations for their causes at WomenofWorth.com.
“L’Oréal Paris is committed to making the world more worthy of women through both our products and our philanthropic programs,” said Tim Coolican, L’Oréal Paris USA President. “Our signature Women of Worth program invites and empowers as many women as possible to celebrate the beauty of giving back and look at their own worth through a different lens. We’re looking forward to the next wave of nominees in 2019.”
In addition to receiving $10,000 to support her charitable cause, each 2019 L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth Honoree will have opportunities for networking and marketing support, along with a platform to elevate her story. The 2019 Honorees will join the current Women of Worth alumnae, all of whom represent a diverse range of inspiring stories and causes. From women supporting survivors of sex trafficking to raising awareness of mass incarceration and spearheading anti-bullying projects, the multifaceted Women of Worth truly uplift and inspire worth within others.
