CLEVELAND — More than 70,000 tubes of lipstick have been shipped to 200 domestic violence shelters across all 50 states.
The lipstick comes from Find Your Fabulosity, a nonprofit organization.
Sheyrl Kurland started the organization five years ago while she was volunteering at a domestic violence shelter.
“I just kept looking at these women, and I kept thinking, how can I make these women feel like women again?” said Kurland.
That’s when she remembered something her mother said.
“Sheryl, if you want to feel better, put on a little lipstick,” Kurland said.
She decided to buy 25 tubes of lipstick and gave them away.
“It’s like I took a magic wand to the room and all the pain lifted,” said Kurland.
That was the catalyst for the nonprofit, Kurland said.
