Para Todxs- Vive Cosmetics Community Donation
At Vive Cosmetics, we are committed to supporting our many varied communities. We will be contributing .25 cents from every lipstick you buy to organizations in the United States, Central, and South America, that provide help and resources to the Latinx community and communities of color, especially organizations that support womxn and girls. We will be naming this effort "Para Todxs- ViveCosmeticss Community Donation".
We live in a country where our appointed leaders are neglecting and openly targeting many minority communities. By supporting local and nonprofit organizations here in the US, we hope to work against the rising tide of xenophobia, racism, and sexism in this country.
Thanks to you, we will be donating to three organizations in California and the United States that are working tirelessly to serve our Latinx community. We have some great organizations in mind, but we would love to hear about the great places that YOU care about. Email us at PR@vivecosmetics.com regarding contributions and sponsorships.
Organizations and events we have supported throughout the year:
- Young Latinas Aspire
- Breaking the Chains

Inequality and a lack of economic mobility define today’s economy, putting the American Dream out of reach for the vast majority of low-wage workers. This is particularly true for the many immigrants employed in the U.S. service sector, who, despite their determination and tenacity, often struggle to make ends meet.
Prospera identifies groups of women who are ready to create a cooperative business, and supports the founders from business idea to launch to sustainability. Throughout our three-year program, we invest heavily in the leadership development of the founders with comprehensive training, coaching, and technical assistance. With the support of our programs, women cultivate their leadership abilities, grow successful businesses, become skilled co-op developers, and transform their communities.
Nalgona Positivity Pride is a Xicana-Brown*-Indigenous project that focuses on intersectional body positivity, eating disorders awareness and cultural affirmation. NPP started in 2014 by Gloria in Southern California with the goal of connecting the relationship historical trauma, social oppression, and eating disorders have.
NPP believes that racism & colonialism, ableism, homophobia, (etc.) are all factors that lead to violent relationships with food and the phenomenon of destitute body image in communities of color. Through education, social media content, and support groups NPP is able to reach out to the individuals that are continuously unheard.
