Worth Manifesto is a charitable project based in Pittsburgh PA, USA. Our mission is to restore the dignity of marginalized women, in precarious conditions.
Through acts of kindness and words of encouragement, we want to remind them of their self worth and encourage their lives to a correct self perception.
We do this by collecting unwanted makeup bags, makeup, toiletries, and handwritten personal encouraging notes.
The bags are filled with these items and distributed among women in the following conditions:
homeless women in the street.
migrants women in transit at the Mexican/American border.
If you want to learn how to participate, partner with us for delivery, send donations, or learn about our whereabouts, we invite you to subscribe to our letters, which are sent occasionally when we have good news.
OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END
THE DAY WE BECOME
SILENT ABOUT THINGS
– Martin Luther King Jr.
“We don't need to be rich in order to help others, all we need is to be generous and share what we have with those who have none.”
Our generosity can manifest in different ways; maybe is time, connections, money, items or resources.
The goal of Worth Manifesto is to show normal people that they can help, and to show marginalized women that they are worthy to live a different life, worthy to dream with a future, worthy to look their best, worthy to have a career, worthy to overcome their pain, worthy be clean, and specially, worth fighting for.
Maybe this little present will be the encouragement they need to believe in themselves.
How To Help
Have an Ipsy subscription and don’t know what to do with the bags?
Do you shop your makeup at the mall, and have more makeup bags than you need? Send ‘em to us! We’ll take them!
We want each one of our bags to have different, intentional handwritten note. The power of a letter can be exactly what someone needs to be cheered up.
We need your donations! Save any travel-size toiletries, the free toothbrushes your dentist gives you, or the ipsy makeup samples you don’t like.
We depend on you!
We are hoping to obtain a 503c Status by the end of the year. The cost of setting everything up is close to $2k. If you can spare the cost of a coffee with us, it will help us to get closer to this goal. The tax exemption, will allow us to obtain grants and further our mission.
Nowadays, nobody has time for anything. and committing to volunteer with any frequency of time seems almost impossible anymore, we get it.
This is why we don’t have set hours for volunteers, instead, we have open calls for people to join us during specific campaigns.
The opportunities range from putting bags together, sorting donations, picking up or delivering items, translating cards, livestream things on social media, taking pictures, taking videos, helping to count donations, collecting drop off points, etc.
We ask for help, a lot.

We work continuously in the streets, but we also host campaigns to help the asylum seekers living homeless at border.
During those campaigns, we request specific items that we bring and hand off to them directly.
The new border campaign will run from Thanksgiving to Christmas 2019.
The new campaign has 3 specific goals, and we need all the help to make them a reality.
Take a look at the new goals for the campaign, and get involved!
