YouFromMe donates beauty products and payouts to non-profit organizations to give back to people in crisis within their communities.
We also collect personal hygiene, cosmetics and beauty products and distribute them to various non-profit organizations who serve women and families overcoming abuse, addiction, homelessness & poverty.
Every 30 days we take all donations that have been sent into YFM and inspect each one like we do for selling products. Each one is fully sanitized and sorted properly to ensure each product is in perfect condition. If you have chose to donate your payout, all donations are made on the 30th of each month and you will receive an email receipt.
Please do not tape the product itself closed, for we need to inspect it anyway.
If possible, use recycled newspaper or recycled packing material when packing to insure no breakage, everything should fit snug in the box.
Make sure all items are securely closed to avoid spilling. Keep YouFromMe shipping boxes to send in donations. Please note we will not accept items damaged during shipping. If not followed, your package will be sent back to the queue during evaluation and we reserve the right to decline to donate.

Organizations We Care About
The bail project
The Bail Project™ National Revolving Bail Fund is on a mission to combat mass incarceration and reshape the pretrial system in the United States. 100% of online donations are used to bring people home. Since bail money goes back to them when cases close, they are able to recycle every dollar donated at least twice per year.
Dress for success
Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work & in life. Their purpose is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty, be part of a global movement for change, and empower women to obtain safer futures.
The NAACP is at the forefront of the movement to build political power and ensure the well-being of communities of color. Underscoring the advocacy of our 2,200 local units across the country, they empower our communities to make democracy work for them. Donations to the NAACP helps further their mission to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.
beauty bus Foundation
Beauty Bus was founded in memory of Melissa Marantz Nealy, whose life was cut short at the young age of 28 by a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Melissa became homebound as her disease progressed. In an effort to lift her spirits, her family arranged for in-home haircuts, manicures, and facials. Melissa said these treatments made her feel "human again."
THE LEGAL AID SOCIETY
Their Civil, Criminal Defense, Juvenile Rights, and Pro Bono practices work tirelessly in and out of the courtroom to defend their clients and dismantle the hidden, systemic barriers that can prevent them from thriving in New York City. They seek to be a beacon of hope for New Yorkers who feel neglected —regardless of who they are, where they come from, or how they identify.
share your beauty
With the goal of putting a bit of sparkle and dignity back into the lives of women and teens in crisis, the Share Your Beauty program taps into the huge surplus of beauty products generated by the beauty industry, by collecting unused products and delivering them to organizations serving women in crisis.
What To Expect
Once we have received and evaluated your donations, you will receive an email within 3 - 5 business days showing which beauty products were accepted and if any products are not eligible for donating. You will than receive a receipt for donating.
Non-qualifying items from accepted packages cannot be returned and will be recycled properly. We strive to help women rebuild their lives by giving them an opportunity to be a part of the community.
