Safe Horizon #PutTheNailinIt Event
An evening filled with champagne, manicures, and an array of Henri Bendel products all while benefiting a good cause – can anything get better than that?
On Tuesday, September 29, beauty bloggers were invited to the Henri Bendel flagship store in New York City in support of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month taking place every October.
As the nation’s leading organization dedicated to domestic violence, Safe Horizon assists victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault and more with the power to “move from crisis to confidence.” Currently, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will be a victim of domestic violence, according to Safe Horizon.
The organization has provided support to over 250,000 people in New York City and it wants to continue to #PutTheNailinIt for good.
“Every day at Safe Horizon we provide services and programs for victims of crime and abuse to bring them from crisis to confidence. The generous donations that we receive from this event will enable us to continue our vital services for thousands,” said Safe Horizon Chief Development Officer Eddie Pelto.
As part of Safe Horizon’s national #PutTheNailinIt campaign, Henri Bendel, Paintbox and Miss Pop Nails partnered with the organization for a one-time event to bring awareness and show solidarity for the fight against domestic violence. Attendees were treated to a 10 percent discount on Henri Bendel items with all proceeds benefitting Safe Horizon. Manicure stations, provided by Miss Pop Nails, were set up to paint everyone’s left ring finger purple, the color representing domestic violence awareness.
“A purple nail is a small gesture with a big show of support. Hopefully, the eye-catching, custom nail art designs by my Miss Pop team and I won’t just garnish compliments but will also open up the conversation on domestic violence and the important work Safe Horizon does for the community.
I’m so grateful that O.P.I. Nail Lacquers donated so many stunning purple shades so we can help #PutTheNailInIt,” said Miss Pop Nails.
Launched in April 2015, the campaign has gained tremendous support from celebrities, such as actress Kyra Sedgwick, singer Dave Navarro, CBS anchor Gayle King, Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev and many more.
