March 18, 2020

Dear Friends,

As a preventative measure to help control the transmission of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Daisie Foundation will postpone two events that are part of our yearly Mother’s Day Outreach Initiative: the Leading Ladies Luncheon, which was to take place on Sunday, April 19, 2020; and the Mother’s Day Makeover, which was to take place on Monday, May 4, 2020.

These events will be rescheduled at a later time.

We at the Daisie Foundation want to ensure the safety of our team, executive board, the Essie Ambassador’s board, our partners, ambassadors, volunteers, and all the mothers and leading women we impact. We encourage everyone to follow the most up-to-date public health recommendations from the CDC, and the foundation sends our best wishes to the entire Daisie extended family in this challenging moment.

Thank you for your continued support of the Daisie Foundation, and we will be in touch with further updates. For the most up-to-date announcements, please visit our COVID-19 webpage dedicated to these messages.

Stay well.

The Daisie Foundation Team
