Non-profit Love Out Lavender encourages beauty professionals to create inspiring images used to generate donations toward funding a search for a cure for cancer.

When founder Todd Kane’s mother received a cancer diagnosis, he remembered she taught him to believe that love conquers all. Kane, who is a Matrix artistic educator, took this to heart and founded Love Out Lavender, setting out to prove that creativity can help defeat cancer. 

The work featured here are the top-grossing images in 2016’s Love Out Lavender campaign, which raised $50,000 for City Of Hope to help battle cancer. For details on how to participate in the 2017 campaign, visit loveoutlavender.org.
