Others Experiences-Fundraiser Followup/Request For Information

If you previously donated to GlitterSniffer Cosmetics Fundraiser for Christie Brooks' father please take a moment and email Christie with the amount you donated.

This post is a followup to the story originally told here. The fundraiser was held late last year after Christie's father suffered a devastating fire and lost everything he owned. There was a sale in addition to personal donations. GlitterSniffer Cosmetics itself pledged $100.00.

After some time had passed with the money not arriving despite numerous assurances it would be sent and items purchased by the donators also failing to arrive Christie discussed her concerns in a makeup group on Facebook. This resulted in GlitterSniffer Cosmetics rescinding its offer of $100.00 and a promise that the other donations would be sent. As of today, almost 2 months later, Christie Brooks has still not received the donation.

Lela Warren was questioned about this last night on the GS Complaints Facebook page but failed to provide an answer, despite being asked multiple times.

Christie Brooks received this email today:

While it is refreshing to see that GlitterSniffer Cosmetics appears to be making an effort to rectify the situation, Christie has no idea what the total amount due to her father is. The donations were all sent via Paypal to GS and no accounting was ever given to her. This is being posted now in an effort to determine exactly how much is due and to hopefully aid in its recovery.

Though it can be said that perhaps GlitterSniffer Cosmetics should have kept a better accounting of the donations it is hoped that the information can be gathered in other ways and a resolution to this matter can finally be reached.


  1. I might be mistaken, but I thought someone was asked to go through several Paypal emails to get addresses. If this is the case, then wouldn't there be a record of this in those emails? I'm sure a simple search could be done, which would pull up the appropriate emails

  2. Chocotaco- Yes. Recently a GS fan accessed the GS email account and almost 2,000 customers personally identifying information. Some of that was from Paypal. It is not certain at this point why GS has not located the information themselves or why there was not a prior accounting, especially since GS posted that they were buying the gift card on December 8.

  3. She should just write back with "plenty" It's not fair that Christie has to figure it out now, probably getting a much smaller total than if Lela would just man up and give the actual amount. After all not everyone sees this blog of awesome so they won't see the part to contact her :(
