Your Old Mascara Can Help Save Wildlife!

Well, at least the mascara wand can!

Almost everyone will help wildlife if they can. But many think that helping animals in need is too difficult because they don’t know what to do, where to help or how to make contact with people who can guide them in the right direction. But helping wildlife just might be easier than you think! And it can begin in a most unexpected, close to home way … with an old mascara wand.


How can you help wildlife easily? Just look in your old makeup drawer! You might be surprised to find out that your old mascara wand can help animals! That’s right! ICYDK, Love What Matters uses old mascara brushes to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of animals! The bristles are very close together and this helps to take off the larva and eggs!


We all have old mascara tubes lying around. So, instead of throwing them out, why not donate the wands instead? Simply clean the wands in hot, soapy water. Dry them and send them to:
