Philanthropic Efforts

Beauty for Books

Founded in 2007 by Dr. Corey S. Maas, Beauty for Books™ (formerly Books for Botox), is a California-based 501c3 non-profit organization that generates books, reading materials, and donations for financially challenged schools and children.

The program is run annually during the holiday season , and family, friends, patients and donors are asked to bring in and deposit new books that are appropriate for grades K-8. In exchange, donors receive a premier cosmetic treatment courtesy of the Maas Clinic or Appearance Care Center.

The Annual Beauty for Books™ gala provides a forum for the local school districts (Marin City, San Francisco and Oakland Unified) to explain their needs, for friends, beauty experts and businesses to get together, and for generous donors to “fund the need” expressed by the schools.

The 12th Annual Beauty for Books Holiday Initiative ran in December 2018, and received so many generous donations, from new children’s books, to gift cards for new books and donations for teacher scholarships, enabling them to expand their degree through an online library-credentialing course. We continue moving ahead with our mission to improve illiteracy and educational shortages in the underfunded Bay Area elementary public school libraries. These generous donations directly benefit children who are eager to learn and deserve the necessary educational resources.
