February Instagram Contest

February Instagram Contest

The month of February is Black History Month. This is a time to recognize and celebrate the achievements by African Americans and their central role in history. 
_________
January Theme:
Black History Month Awareness
Description:

Show us how you style and cut textured hair, or how you use your favorite black owned beauty products! Tag us in your photos with #ABSCommunity.

Charity:
During each month's contest, America's Beauty Show will be raising awareness of a different charity. In February, we couldn't just choose one. We will be spotlighting two different charities that we believe deserve more awareness and support! Check out their websites to learn more on how to support or donate.
A Chicago-based national non-profit that uses art to educate, inspire, and mobilize young people to end violence against girls and women.
Helping survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low wealth communities, find pathways to healing.
