Actresses and Neutrogena spokeswomen Vanessa Hudgens and Hayden Panettiere are once again participating in Neutrogena’s Wave for Change campaign. The campaign, which launched last year, donates $1 from every acne, cleansing or cosmetic purchase made during July and August to charity.

To raise awareness for the campaign, Hudgens and Panettiere met with children from Junior Achievement Southern California on Monday to fill tote bags with school supplies and Neutrogena products. The bags will go to Alabama tornado victims.

According to Panettiere, every purchase helps. “You think: I am just one person. I can’t make a change. But when you actually try and see results, it is a pretty incredible feeling,” she says.

In order to participate, each purchase must be registered at Neutrogena’s website; from there you can donate to your charity of choice via GlobalGiving. Neutrogena has agreed to donate a minimum of $100,000, with the goal of reaching $250,000 in donations. 

GlobalGiving allows donors to select from a variety of causes, and once a donation is made, will send the donor progress reports on the cause. The organization’s mission is to “build an efficient, open, thriving marketplace that connects people who have community and world-changing ideas with people who can support them.”
