What it Means to "Share the Merry"

What it Means to "Share the Merry"

Posted by Lisa, clara Team Lead on on Dec 7th 2020

For those of you that already know the clara story, you know that we are a part of the Vanguard Skin Specialists mission to make a positive impact. clara is the proud home of curated medical-grade skincare and complimentary VISIA consultations. We offer these products on-line at shopclara.com and at two Vanguard Skin Specialists locations in Colorado Springs (the Grand Cordera and Northgate offices). clara at the Grand Cordera location is also where we take care of patient services for Vanguard Aesthetics. We are fortunate to have stayed busy and in-demand during this unpredictable year. For that, we thank you. 

You and Us

When you allow us the chance to advise you on an eye cream or a sunscreen, you are giving us an opportunity to help you achieve better skin. We value the trust you put in our expertise and your trust in the carefully selected products we offer. When you purchase these products, you become a part of our overall financial impact. At clara, 100% of our profits or 20% of our retail sales (whichever is greater) are donated. The recipients are organizations like Healing Haiti and World Vision. When you stop by our desk for a copy of Dr. Vinh Chung's book, Where the Wind Leads, your money is donated to World Vision. Our motto is Change Your Skin.Change the World. and that is what we aim for every day.

This December, we wanted to make an impact locally and give our donations to organizations in Colorado. Vanguard Skin Specialists has supported many local organizations in the Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Woodland Park areas over the years. It was this list we started with and then we took it to the community to decide. We posted the organizations on our clara and Vanguard Skin Specialists Facebook pages and collected "likes". At the end of the two weeks, we had two clear winners as indicated by the number of "likes" they received - CASA of the Pikes Peak Region and Royal FamilyKIDS of Colorado Springs. Both organizations care for children in need of support in various ways. The organizations that participated are all receiving a $250 donation.

Again, we thank you. Whether you are a dermatology provider at Vanguard Skin Specialists that mentions our consultations, a medical assistant that kindly walks a patient over to learn more about sunscreens, a skincare client that tells a friend about us, an aesthetic patient that purchases a product to enhance your treatment, or a Vanguard Tribe member that brings a relative in to meet us, you make a difference. We know this Christmas is unlike any other, but we can still help others in big and small ways. We can all share the merry one way or another. 

Merry Christmas to you and yours, xoxo the clara team.
