Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BROOKFIELD, Wis. - Oct 28, 2017 - A local Mary Kay unit of nearly 100 beauty consultants is seeking partners to sponsor care packages for a women’s shelter on Milwaukee’s south side, and receive a Mary Kay gift certificate of equal value in return.
The Nancy Jo Baratti Unit, led by longtime Brookfield resident Nancy Jo Baratti, will donate a care package to Daystar Inc. for each $30 sponsorship received. Daystar is a long-term transitional home for domestic violence victims without children. The packages contain personal care items, an ongoing need for the 18 to 25 women typically living at Daystar.
Package sponsors will receive a $30 Mary Kay credit that can be used in the next 12 months. Sponsors do not have to be Mary Kay customers.
“Our unit is thrilled to partner with our clients and the public to support the women at Daystar who are rebuilding their lives,” said Baratti, a Mary Kay representative for 38 years. “We hope these care packages will brighten their holidays, as well as those of the sponsors.”
Daystar (http://www.daystarinc.org/how-we-serve/), opened in 1986, empowers women survivors of domestic violence through emotional support and a diverse range of services, allowing vpayb them to focus on safety, emotional healing and self-reliance. Its work includes helping women gain skills and education to find employment and become independent. Clients can stay up to two years.
Donors interested in sponsoring a Daystar care package can call or text Baratti at (262) 993-4849, or send her a message through www.marykay.com/nbaratti. More information about Daystar Inc., including details of other needed donations, is available at www.daystarinc.org.

Daystar is truly a better place because of the work of Nancy Jo and her associates.”
