Goody Products has been around since the early 1900’s, and is synonymous with innovation, trend setting and reliability. Goody offers, its customers, one of the largest variety of quality brushes, combs and fashion hair accessories. The company caters to everyone, from babies and teens, to moms and dads. Whether it be clips or pony tail holders, that come in bubble gum colors like razberry and limeolade, for little girls, edgy barrettes and headbands, in hot pink, black or silver, for the rebellious teen, or simple combs, brushes and mirrors for men, Goody has them one and all. In addition Goody has not only made their products reasonably priced, but you don’t have to go far to buy them. Target, Duane Reede and Stop n Shop are just a few of the locations where you can find all of your favorite Goody Products.
Goody Products can now also be associated with something else, which has been around for quite some time, Breast Cancer. Goody, and the non profit organization Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC), founded in 1991, announced in June the launch of “Comfort Meets Cause”. In addition to raising awareness and funding for breast cancer survivors, the two organizations will provide educational programs to support the cause. In conjunction with “Comfort Meets Cause” Goody will be launching, in September and October, limited edition pink Goody Ouchless hair brushes. The brushes will be available at all the convenient locations, where you can find Goody Products, and will retail for $5.99 to $9.99. Goody has designed three different brushes, in order to suit all hair types. In addition, they will be coming out with a purse brush, for those quick fixes while you’re on the go. For each brush that is sold, Goody Products will donate 4% of the proceeds to LBBC. In addition, Goody has decided to auction off, on their site (www.goody.com), several brushes that have been autographed by such high profile celebrities as Salma Hayek and Julianne Moore. All proceeds, of the auction will be contributed to LBBC.
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women, in the US. Approximately 215,990 women where diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Out of these women, LBBC currently reaches out to more 27,000 women, and their families, who have been affected by this terrible disease. Goody Products has decided to take a stand and help increase the number of women that LBBC can reach, and spread awareness about Breast Cancer, by working with them through “Comfort Meets Cause”. Join Goody and their retailers and, in September or October, pick up one of these beautiful Pink Ouchless brushes. More information on LBBC, and their cause, can be found at www.lbbc.org.
