Mary Kay heard a bit of an outcry over the past couple days due to their involvement with the HSUS. They acted quickly and listened to what their customers had to say. They recently released this statement on their facebook page:
"Some fans of Mary Kay® products and independent beauty consultants have expressed concerns over a recent sponsorship of a Dallas-area event. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. We have heard you and want to clarify any confusion.
First and foremost, Mary Kay is not a sponsor of this event. Mary Kay’s owner’s wife was approached to make a personal contribution towards a local event here in Dallas sponsored by the Dallas chapter of the Humane Society. This event specifically supports efforts to stop puppy mills and the organization’s stop puppy mills campaign. Out of caring and compassion for addressing puppy mills, our owner’s wife agreed to make a personal contribution. Mary Kay has contacted the Humane Society to clarify that we are not sponsors of this event and the company logo is being removed from the website.
As a company, we sincerely apologize for any confusion or causing any offense to members of the Mary Kay community."
This is great news for all involved -- agriculturalists know their voice has been heard, and we can all go on loving Mary Kay! If that's what you're in to and stuff. If not, then I guess you can go about your day as usual. Don't mind me.
An now, on a completely unrelated note... Happy birthday Bobcat! We had a little birthday celebration at 3 Amigos (where else?!) tonight, complete with a pile of fried ice cream and a nice, long chat with Cheryl about how we think the weekend crowd could be improved.
