Sally Hansen kicks off Color That Cares campaign
NEW YORK Sally Hansen has embarked on a Color That Cares campaign to benefit DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center.
As part of the multicity campaign, Sally Hansen recently participated in the Real Simple event in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. Participants were able to stop by the Sally Hansen booth for a complimentary manicure featuring the brand’s new Complete Salon Manicure nail color.
Visitors also were encouraged to register as a donor for DKMS, which involved a swab of the cheeks to collect cheek cells. The cells will be sent to a lab to be tested and determined for tissue type.
The culmination of the campaign will be in Los Angeles at Hollywood and Highland on June 10. During this event, Sally Hansen will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most manicures done in a day and celebrity guests will be on hand to help launch the initiative. This event will also include DKMS registration for those who are interested.
To raise awareness about the Color That Cares program, Sally Hansen and DKMS debuted a print advertising campaign this April, highlighting the crucial cause that the program benefits. Coty’s funding of the campaign will assist in initial donor registration and blood and marrow typing costs.
DKMS is the largest and most experienced bone marrow donor center in the world with more than two million registered donors. In October 2006, Coty joined DKMS in the fight against leukemia by establishing the Coty-DKMS Linked Against Leukemia partnership. Led by CEO Bernd Beetz, Coty has leveraged its celebrity partnerships to raise awareness of the disease and help recruit thousands of donors around the world. Leukemia personally affected the Coty family when the wife of longtime Coty chairman Peter Harf succumbed to the disease in 1991.
