Darrell Overcash, Mary Kay Inc.’s U.S. PresidentToday’s post is written by Darrell Overcash, Mary Kay Inc.’s U.S. President. Darrell shares his thoughts on Global Month of Service.

We are nearing the end of our Global Month of Service and we are thrilled that so many people helped others. You’ve read about Naomi Buerkle and her team at our Mary Kay distribution center in Chicago making cards for soldiers. Our Chief Marketing Officer Sheryl Adkins-Green,  independent sales force members, corporate employees and I had a chance to volunteer at a “Day of Beauty” on International Women’s Day with domestic violence survivors here in Dallas. Our manufacturing group made goodie bags for shelters and our employees at the Mary Kay southern distribution center in Atlanta planted an herb and flower garden at a women’s shelter.

I know that many of you have already helped in your community, but we still have one week left in Global Month of Service. Let’s use this last week to help thousands of people in hundreds of communities. Take a look at these photos from some of the community activities we’ve held so far and tell me what are you doing for Global Month of Service. How are you making a beautiful difference? And please remember to make your service count by logging your volunteer time at  www.marykay.com/service.
