It's a sobering statistic: one in four women endures partner violence in her lifetime. To raise awareness of the issue, beauty brand Mark is launching a lipstick-and-compact gift set ($24). A solid 100 percent of the net proceeds go to M.powerment, an initiative that distributes grants to programs and organizations working to end dating abuse. A small purchase can go a long way: in the past four years, M.powerment has raised more than a million dollars to help end dating abuse. Brand ambassador Ashley Greene is also getting in on the action with a playlist of positive, empowering songs for women. (Turns out she likes Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera.) If you or somebody you know is in an abusive relationship, there is help and support available through the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
