THE ULTRAVIOLET EDGE
Born from the belief that women everywhere should have access to embrace their individuality in everything they do, Urban Decay launched The Ultraviolet Edge— a global initiative that focuses on women’s rights at an international level—in 2015 in hopes of expanding on their philanthropic efforts and making a difference beyond beauty. Since its launch, The Ultraviolet Edge has connected with several nonprofit organizations to help create literacy programs and microloans to women in Uganda, enable young girls in Kenya to get an education, provide legal representation to underserved and abused women in New York City, and more.
With the help of Urban Decay’s devoted followers, fans, and customers, since launching The Ultraviolet Edge in 2015, they have donated around $1.28 million to women’s empowerment nonprofits and have plans to donate another $1 million to reach their five-year goal of $3 million.
