We invite you to host a "Glimmer Drive" with your department, company friends and family to collect new (or like-new) gifts for underserved women and teenage girls - it's like a toy drive, except Project Glimmer collects jewelry, accessories, heat styling tools, makeup/beauty products, journals, water bottles, gift cards and more.
You can also make a donation! As little as $5 gives a girl a gift and is an incredibly easy way to make sure that no girl is forgotten!
How to host your own Glimmer Drive:
- Pick a date, time, and location (or timeframe at your office) for your Glimmer Drive. You can host one at your home, your place of work, a community center, place of worship, or any place that is convenient.
- Send emails/social posts to friends, colleagues and family!
Explain WHY you're hosting a Glimmer Drive (to support women and teenage girls in need!) and WHAT your guests need to do to participate (bring gifts to donate!) Click here for a few visual assets to include.
Prepare your donations for delivery (or drop off if in Bay Area!
- For Jewelry: New or gently used; all jewelry should be ready to box as a beautiful gift. If any items are tarnished, please give them a quick polish! Earrings should be delivered in pairs, with backs. Place each item in a Ziploc plastic bag (snack size) to prevent tangling. Please note: If items are broken they will disappoint (e.g. cheap looking jewelry, watches without batteries, earrings without backs, etc.) please donate them to Salvation Army.
- For Purses & Handbags: New or gently used; please inspect them to make sure they are in good condition and the interior is clean -- no chewing gum inside, please!
- For Heat Styling Tools: New or gently used; please inspect them to make sure they are in good condition!
- For Makeup, Beauty Products, & Fragrances: Only new, unopened items will be accepted.
- For Gift Cards: Easy! Just slip them into an envelope labeled "Gift Cards."
Send your donations to Project Glimmer, we accept gifts year-round!
