Dear MYD Beauty Family,

After so much coverage about Hurricane Florence and its aftermath, we wanted to update you on the storm’s impact on our teams in Raleigh and Eastern NC as well as how you can help as we focus on supporting our neighbors and fellow North Carolinians in the wake of tragedy.

Fortunately, we did not sustain any damage to our Makeup for Your Day Studio in Raleigh, NC and are open for business. Our Wilmington, NC office and team were unfortunately forced to evacuate and have not all made it back home as of today. If you have mailed correspondence or payments to our Wilmington Office please reach out to us directly so we may note your account. We are unsure of how long it will take to get postal mail updated in that region.  Your patience is appreciated in advance.

During this time of need for our Wilmington team and our neighbors at the NC Coast, we are working to deploy resources to help with the relief efforts. We have collected items to take back to Wilmington and will continue doing so for the next few weeks. If you have any donations that you would like to give to the recovery efforts there you can drop off your items for collection at our Makeup for Your Day Raleigh Studio located at 6308 Angus Drive, Ste B.

To all the emergency management officials, first responders and others across our North Carolina Community who are working around the clock in the midst of this crisis, we are forever grateful for you!

If you would like to help, we encourage you to sign up through the State’s volunteer website, or — for donations — go to the governor’s Disaster Relief Fund.  For local, direct monetary donations made to support basic need supplies for those affected in Wilmington, NC please visit our friends with the Port City Disaster Relief Fund.

Affected areas of Hurricane Florence will require extensive, long-term relief. We appreciate your help for our state in any way that you can, no act is too small.  Even just a social media share of this message, posting a link to one of the relief funds previously mentioned or volunteering your time is so appreciated.

Thank you again for your calls, messages and genuine concern for our team and our community. We hope to send updates on the coast soon!


Jen B.
