The mission of the TMKF is two-fold:

* We are committed to eliminating cancers affecting women by supporting top medical scientists who are searching for a cure for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers.  

* We are committed to ending the epidemic of domestic violence by providing grants to women's shelters and supporting community outreach programs.

Since the Foundation began in 1996, it has granted $50 million dollars to organizations fighting cancer and violence against women.

The Mary Kay Foundation has lost a true friend. Marilyn stepped into eternity’s light on March 8, 2013. What a remarkable woman she was and a champion for the Mary Kay opportunity.

Marilyn was a nurse for 14 years when in 1972 a friend, Arlene Lenarz, another nurse who in the past had worked with her, called and invited her to a Mary Kay skin care class. That class changed Marilyn’s life. She caught the dream and immediately signed her agreement, even though she was terrified of sales. Eventually her friend Arlene rose to become the number one National, and Marilyn following her example inspired her unit to reach for the stars. Marilyn was soon driving a pink Cadillac, and her unit rose to number five in the nation. The key for her success was consistency. She held four to five skin care classes a week and instructed her unit members to do the same.

At that time the Independent Sales Directors in Minnesota were the Mary Kay stars, and Marilyn, inspired by the success of Arlene and others, stepped into her own limelight as a National Sales Director in 1980. “It was the most exciting day of my career … what a privilege for me to join them at the top of the Mary Kay ladder!”

Realizing how far she had come, she readily took the stage to inspire others to grasp this great opportunity, to step out and take a chance. “If a shy woman like me with no self-confidence can do this, so can you.” She was grateful that Mary Kay gave her time to be with her children, and she made lifelong friends that shared her vision. Marilyn was totally loyal to our dear founder Mary Kay and supported Company policies and promotions, such as the 20/20 (20 classes in 20 working days).

Marilyn worked hard, but she was also practical, approachable, friendly and one who stood firm in her faith. She set a sterling example for others to follow. She said, “I know and believe that God does not close a door without opening a window, but I have also learned that I must look within myself and open the blinds to see the light through that window and follow it.”

If you well, is sunny. Wind and rain, he will hold an umbrella in your heart; The dark, he will point a light in your heart; Sorry, he will be much comfort you; Crying, he will give you a heart; When tired, he would put his shoulder. When he was in, you will feel warm, feel the deep love. In his absence, you will worry, worry about him: "what's wrong with this man? Will not have a thing?" Cross the road, you will give him a charge, "pay attention to safety! The day is cold, you will be told him "dress!" He also often told you, the same passion.

After you apply your regular coat of marscaa, close your eye and go over the top part of your eyelash and alternate from bottom to top, then from bottom to top again how ever many times you wish. After that. Pay attention to the very end tips of your eyelashes. Get a lot of product on your marscaa wand and really lay it on thick on those ends.

I did Mary Kay for about a year and half and I was very good at it. I must admit the training was great and I rellay enjoyed it for a while. I loved all the things Mary Kay Ash stood for. She was a remarkable woman. However, I realized that I rellay did not like having to book parties. It was too stressful for me. I consider myself a pro direct sales girl. I like to be supportive of all legitimate work from home businesses, not just my own. I currently am with Avon and it has worked out great. I love that I don't have to do parties (unless I want to) and the fact that we have such a wide variety of products at reasonable prices. It has worked so well for me that I eventually was able to leave my 9-5 job. Now, I am not putting down Mary Kay at all but personally Avon worked better for me. So, you rellay have to consider what you would like to do. Some people love to give parties (or classes as we referred to it in Mary Kay). Others rather sell from a catalog or brochure. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. Mary Kay could be the perfect fit for you and I think it is smart that you are researching it first. If you have any questions about Avon please visit my website below for more information.

I have been in the Mary Kay Business for over two years. I decided to bemcoe a consultant for two reasons, to make a little extra cash and to use the product at a decent discount. I make all my money "on the go" or by word of mouth. Since it is basically "your business" your can run it however way you like as long as it falls within Mary Kay guidelines. I have never held a Skin Care Class. It is just not "me" to do that. I have never hassled anyone because I don't like to be hassled. I carry my "On the Go" bag and if it catches someone's eye then I am fortunate to offer them a free sample or offer them some kind of Mary Kay literature (ie. catalog, product brochure). I have never actively sought out someone and tried to recruit them or "host a party." I have never let any director pressure me into buying way too much product either. I buy what I like and what I use and that is what I advertise if someone asks me about my product. If someone needs something that I don't have in stock, I order it for them, simple as that. All you need to order is $200 a year (wholesale) to keep consultant status and $200 (wholesale) every quarter to stay active and keep your 50% discount. It is what you make of it just like any business. I am satisfied with the couple hundred dollars I make per month. Some consultants have made Mary Kay their full time job and are very satisfied with their income. SO you see there is a wide range of what you can do with the business.

I met Marilyn when I went to Dallas with Cathy Bill back about 12 years ago. I was so lucky to have my picture taken with her and put on a button. I just came across that button last week and said she was a wonderful loving person. Remember the good times with a lovely lady. My condolences for the family.
