Creative Causes


No one can bring
you peace but


We believe that with great influence comes the great
responsibility to give back and to spread knowledge.
Knowledge that leads to empowerment. Creative Causes
is dedicated to giving women of all ages the knowledge
and tools to make powerful changes from within to find
inner strength and beauty.

Driven by the acute awareness of the various ways many women struggle
with their body image and self-worth starting from a young age, we
utilize the knowledge and influence of our industry to help break the
cycle of negative self-perception. By taking a truly holistic approach
– bringing together the beauty and fashion industry to promote
exchange and share insights about beauty, health and wellness, and
by supporting a selected group of non-profit organizations that
provide essential programs for the empowerment of women — we can
make a long-lasting impact.
