TNG is known for our employees and programs as much as for our beauty products and services. Our strong connection and commitment to the community is what sets us apart from other companies, and it brings us together to make a difference.

American Red Cross Blood Drives
Each year TNG employees roll up their sleeves and donate precious blood to help save lives. In 2019, TNG held 2 blood drives and collected 68 total pints, saving potentially 204 lives. Every minute of every day someone requires blood given through volunteer donation. Only three out of every 100 people in the U.S. are blood donors, which makes each donation all the more important. Anyone can donate at the TNG sponsored drives. Together we have collected more than 774 pints and held 21 blood drives since initiating this effort.

Community Outreach Days

For this reason, TNG allows full-time talent employed over 90 days to volunteer one day per year with pay to make a difference in our community. Since the adoption of this benefit, TNG Rebel talent have volunteered in a number of ways with family members, co-workers and friends. These are just of a few examples . . .
