Beauty Gives Back with Michael Boychuck and The Shade Tree Las Vegas

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Boychuck Partners with The Shade Tree of Las Vegas for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

 

In honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness month, celebrity colorist and COLOR Salon of Caesars Palace owner Michael Boychuck has partnered with The Shade Tree of Las Vegas to raise funds through the sale of his Boychuck beauty brush collections to benefit the shelter for women, children and pets that are victims of domestic abuse.

“While we are all rebuilding our city, it’s important to us to work with local organizations that continue to make Las Vegas a better place to live,” said Boychuck. “We are honored to partner with Shade Tree and give the community a great way to shop and give back.”

From Oct. 9-31, 30 percent of all online profits on michaelboychuck.com will go towards The Shade Tree and its mission to provide safety, assistance, education and healthcare for those affected by domestic violence. Following federal budget cuts and the recent closing of The Shade Tree’s transitional women’s shelter, organization members are looking to the community for their advocacy and support.

Vegan, hypoallergenic and ultra-soft, Boychuck’s signature beauty brushes are available in 5-piece and 24-piece collections and encased in a sleek, metallic carrying case for easy transportation. Each kit offers the daily makeup brush essentials to keep you looking and feeling your best and most beautiful self.

For those looking to shop for a cause, use the code SHADE TREE at checkout to save 20 percent off your entire purchase. For more information and to purchase signature Boychuck products, visit michaelboychuck.com and stay connected on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
