BOLINGBROOK, Ill., May 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ulta Beauty guests
brought possibilities to life for mothers and children in rural
communities this past Mother's Day season through in-store and
online donations totaling more than $1.1
million. All proceeds will benefit Save the Children's Early
Steps to School Success program and families impacted by natural
disasters in the United States.
The partnership reflects the Ulta Beauty Charitable Foundation's
(UBCF) mission to increase the number of women and families Ulta
Beauty can empower and strengthen through financial support.
"This past Mother's Day season, guests at more than 1,100 stores
and online experienced the beauty of giving back with 100 percent
of donations benefiting Save the Children's critical early learning
and disaster relief programs in the
United States," said Mary
Dillon, Ulta Beauty's chief executive officer. "We know that
in order to ensure a bright future for all children, women and
their families need access to early learning opportunities and
protection from harm. For 100 years, Save the Children has done
whatever it takes – every day and in times of crisis – to transform
children's lives and the future we share."
"I've never met a mom who didn't want the best for her child,
and with Ulta Beauty's partnership, we helped more moms ensure
their children are getting the early learning opportunities they
need. With 85 percent of a child's brain developed by age three,
the quality time moms spend with their young children at home is so
very crucial for a child's success – and Save the Children is
equipping moms with the tools they need to turn every day moments
into brain-building moments," said Mark
Shriver, Save the Children's senior vice president of U.S.
programs & advocacy. "We're incredibly grateful to Ulta Beauty
– and your generous shoppers – for supporting Save the Children
this year during the Mother's Day shopping season."
In addition to its early learning work in America, Save the
Children's emergency response teams are on the front lines of every
major emergency in the United
States, helping meet children's most urgent and unique
"Disasters are scary and disruptive for kids – they take
children away from their homes, their schools, their friends and
can have lasting consequences," said Shriver. "Save the Children
gets parents the essential items they need to continue to care for
their children during an emergency and sets up safe spaces in
shelters where kids can play, learn and begin to cope. We're on the
ground for the long term, partnering with local communities to
restore childcare centers and preschools – so kids can get back to
learning and recover."
