Cheryl Wischhover and Kathleen Hou: Donate Beauty Co-Founders

The Partner Ship Podcast

Just two months ago, beauty writers and editors Cheryl Wischhover and Kathleen Hou joined forces to start Donate Beauty, a nationwide movement to bring essential and in-demand beauty products to healthcare workers on the COVID-19 frontlines. When the current health crisis first began sweeping across the U.S., Cheryl, Kathleen and two of their beauty-industry colleagues — writer Caroline Moss and Women's Health Beauty Director Kristina Rodulfo — began working together to act as the intermediaries between brands and hospitals. And to date, Donate Beauty has donated more than 140,000 beauty products to more than 30,000 healthcare workers at more than 400 hospitals. On this episode of The Partner Ship, hear how they've built an efficient and impactful organization with no prior nonprofit experience — all while maintaining demanding full-time jobs — and how they're planning to continue their efforts even as the curve flattens.
