iHEARTMEDIA AC KOST (103.5 FM)/LOS ANGELES morning show host ELLEN K announces a partnership with THRIVE CAUSEMETICS, a cosmetics company dedicated to supporting women with cancer. As part of the partnership, KOST 103.5 and THRIVE CAUSEMETICS will offer female listeners who are undergoing cancer treatment a complimentary makeover to improve their confidence and self-esteem.
KOST 103.5’s "MEANINGFUL MAKEOVERS" campaign launched with seven-year old MAKE-A-WISH child TAYLOR of ORANGE COUNTY and the INLAND EMPIRE CHAPTER who is living with EWING's SARCOMA and made a wish to become a pop singer. Earlier this month, TAYLOR was surprised by the KOST 103.5 "MEANINGFUL MAKEOVER SQUAD, who provided make-up services and styling for her PARENTING OC MAGAZINE cover shoot. TAYLOR joined ELLEN K today (4/08) to talk about her inspirational journey and to premiere her song on the radio for the first time.
Later this month, KOST 103.5 and THRIVE CAUSEMETICS will begin hosting "MEANINGFUL MAKEOVER PARTIES" exclusively for cancer patients. The special events will allow guests to relax in a fun environment and form a bond with other patients, all while they receive makeovers and style tips for their specific needs. During each makeover, THRIVE CAUSEMETIC's expert make-up artists will provide tutorials, application tips and beauty products to take home.
ELLEN K shared her personal story and reasons for wanting to do these special events: “When my mom was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, our worlds were turned upside down. Like many, we searched tirelessly for answers. When I met the people at THRIVE CAUSEMETICS, I immediately related to the feeling of normalcy and hope they bring to people fighting the cancer battle. I am grateful for the opportunity to help women feel their very best while they bravely face this horrible disease.”
THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Founder/CEO KARISSA BODNER added, “We are thrilled to join KOST and ELLEN K in providing our products and makeovers to these women. This partnership allows us to expand our impact and help more women feel good during such a difficult time.”
