OPI & City of Hope

I know that I always feel a little bit better when proceeds from items I purchase go towards a good cause.  Companies like Sevenly and TOMS are already capitalizing on society’s social mindedness and now, OPI is donating a portion of their proceeds to a great cause – City of Hope.

George W. Schaeffer, President and CEO of OPI Products, Inc., is being honored with City of Hope‘s Spirit of Life award for his philanthropic contributions.  City of Hope is a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.  George established the George W. Schaeffer Endowment for Innovation in Diabetes research and along with OPI is raising funds to aid in the fight against diabetes.

What does buying your favorite OPI polish have to do with it?  If you buy Cajun Shrimp, You Don’t Know Jacques, Bubble Bath or Strawberry Margarita, 50 cents of your purchase will be donated to the City of Hope.

To learn more, please check out City of Hope on Facebook and Twitter!  Don’t forget to follow OPI as well for updates on their latest collections.  You can donate today by texting “GiveHope” ($10) or “GiveLove” ($5) to 27722 and join George and OPI fund research for new treatments and along with City of Hope, finding a CURE for diabetes!

Don’t forget to pick up one (or all) of these best-selling polishes at your favorite Ulta location!
