Community Investments and Sponsorships
At Vive Cosmetics, we are committed to supporting our communities. We live in a country where our appointed leaders are neglecting and openly targeting many minority communities. By supporting local and nonprofit organizations, we hope to work against the rising tide of xenophobia, racism, and sexism in this country.
Our community promise is to contribute 25 cents of every lipstick sold to organizations, people and causes in the United States and Latin America, that provide help and resources to the Latinx community and communities of color, especially organizations and individuals that support womxn and girls.
