For the past 12 years, Glamour Magazine & Sally Hansen have joined forces to honor the most inspirational women from coast to coast through a contest called Best Of You. These are ordinary women who make an extraordinary difference in their communities and around the world, which is precisely the type of WYSK-y woman we celebrate here. So we truly love this contest and were particularly excited to learn that a woman we profiled in December is one of this year’s 10 Best Of You semi-finalists… Patricia Brett, Designer and Founder of Veronica Brett, a luxury collection of swimwear fashioned especially for breast cancer survivors.
Candidates for Best Of You are nominated by Glamour Magazine readers. From that initial pool, Glamour and Sally Hansen narrow the nominee field down to 10 semi-finalists based on how each woman uses the best of herself to bring out the best in others. While we think all 10 of this year’s inspiring women are worthy of recognition, our vote is going to Patricia Brett.
Voting is open to the public until February 13th, via this Glamour microsite. As a bonus for taking the time to vote, anyone who does will be automatically entered for a chance to win a basket of beauty goodies from Sally Hansen and Glamour. For every vote received, Glamour will donate $1 (up to $5,000) to Sally Hansen’s charity partner DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donor center whose mission is to recruit bone marrow donors to help save the lives of leukemia patients.
The top four women chosen at the close of Best Of You voting will each receive a $1,000 donation to their favorite charity from Sally Hansen, a trip to New York City for two, a full-service Glamour makeover and be professionally photographed for a Sally Hansen ad portfolio in an upcoming issue of Glamour.
So get on “Team Patricia” with us and let’s help this Woman You Should Know win!
