Autumn – Winter 2014 Contes de Fées
Autumn - Winter 2014 marked a momentous milestone in our charitable commitment. The Hillberg & Berk Foundation was created, devoted to supporting and empowering women worldwide. Through the foundation, Hillberg & Berk will champion influential women, whose work has inspired fundamental changes and whose values reflect our own. The Hillberg & Berk Inspirational Women will become the main inspiration behind our charitable work, by donating towards the causes that they believe in and supporting their charitable efforts. With their help we will continue to fulfill our mission and empower women, one sparkle at a time. During the Autumn – Winter 2014 collection period, we featured two inspirational women.
The first was Betty Ann Heggie. Betty Ann dedicated her career to challenging stereotypes and knocking down walls. She has received many honours during her career, including being inducted into the Hall of Fame of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women, receiving the Queen’s Golden Jubilee medal, the YWCA Lifetime Achievement Award, the University of Saskatchewan Alumni Award for Mentorship, and the Stevie Award for ‘Women Helping Women.’ Today, after retiring from the corporate world after 27 years of success, Heggie helps women continue to lead the way in the business world, through the Betty-Ann Heggie Womentorship Foundation. Hillberg & Berk was proud to sponsor Betty-Ann and her groundbreaking work to empower women do their best in business by donating to the Betty-Ann Womentorship Fund.
The second inspirational woman we featured was Sherry Abbott. Sherry is the Executive Director of Beauty Gives Back, which is the charitable arm of the cosmetic and beauty industry that provides psychosocial and supportive cancer care programs to women and families impacted by the disease. Today, as ED of Beauty Gives Back, she is proud to build on her personal cancer experiences and reflect the voices of Canadian women, their families, and survivors everywhere. As spokesperson for the organization, she is keen to encourage women to seek support and take control by accessing Look Good Feel Better and FacingCancer.ca, two free cancer support programs offered by Beauty Gives Back. Hillberg & Berk was proud to partner with Sherry Abbott and make a contribution worth over 25 thousand dollars to Look Good Feel Better in 2014.
