CAMPAIGN: A Commitment to Ending Domestic Violence


"Be a team player. Your potential is limited if you try to accomplish everything by yourself." Mary Kay Ash

That’s exactly what the Team Up for Women!® campaign is all about. Mary Kay Ash believed in the power of women – especially when they work together to help others.

From April 1 through May 12 (Mary Kay’s birthday), gather your team and let’s support The Mary Kay Foundation’s efforts to end domestic violence and cancers that affect women.

Your Team
So who is your team? Maybe it’s your Zumba class, friends, family, coworkers, customers, your child’s Soccer team, a bridge group, golfing buddies, mom’s group, church or book club. You can even have an online team!

Honor Someone Special
Perhaps you have a friend or family member affected by cancer or domestic violence. You can honor them during this time by asking others to donate in her name. Or maybe you want to make this a special birthday or mother’s day tribute.

Let’s Get Started!
We’ve made it easy by providing all the tools you need online!

Beginning April 1, you can:

  • Customize your very own personal webpage for your Team Up for Women!® event that will help you promote, send emails to friends and family, manage donations, and upload your favorite pictures. You can even see other pages already up.
  • Make a donation online to Team Up for Women!®
  • Text your donation to 80888 and type the keyword: TEAMUP. A one-time $10 donation will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance. (Message and data fees may apply. Contact your carrier for pricing plans and details. You must be 18 years of age or older.)

I’m planning to have an online team to honor my cousin, a breast cancer survivor. On behalf of The Mary Kay FoundationSM, thank you for whatever way you choose to support Team Up this spring. We can’t wait to hear about it!
