Mary Kay Inc. commits nearly $10 million to global COVID-19 support.
As a global COVID-19 response partner, it’s our responsibility to help where we can amid the unparalleled crisis facing the communities where we live and work. In an effort to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and support frontline workers, Mary Kay Inc. is contributing nearly $10 million in monetary donations, product donations and distribution support in the countries where we operate and in communities in critical need worldwide.
“The wide-ranging impact of this pandemic on our economies, populace and the world at large may not be truly known for some time,” said David Holl, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc. “But here’s what we’re sure of right now: people are suffering, and an unprecedented crisis requires everyone’s support. It’s our responsibility to help those affected by this virus – either directly, like our frontline workers, or indirectly, like women and children impacted by the alarming uptick in domestic violence cases.”
In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Mary Kay Inc., its subsidiaries around the world, and its four company-sponsored Foundations in Canada, Brazil, China and the United States have taken a wide range of actions to support global relief efforts including: producing, distributing and donating hand sanitizer to the Pan American Health Organization/Regional Office for the Americas of the World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO), CARE (an international humanitarian agency) and a combined 1.5 million frontline responders worldwide.
At Mary Kay, we stand united in our support of the global effort to combat COVID-19 and those who continue to work tirelessly to minimize the spread and impact of this unparalleled health crisis.
