With everything going on in the world right now, we got to thinking about all the people making a difference on behalf of their communities. Whether they're risking their lives on medical frontlines or bringing joy when we need it the most, there's no denying their selflessness. Beauty by Earth's Look for the Helpers Campaign is meant to recognize the individuals making an impact under COVID-19 circumstance.
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'"Mister Rogers
