BOSTON, Feb. 9, 2021 /CNW/ -- First Aid Beauty (a.k.a. FAB) was created with a mission to rescue people from their biggest skin concerns. In 2020, the brand began the FAB AID student debt relief initiative to rescue recent college graduates from a different kind of challenge – the often-overwhelming weight of student loans.

The $1.7 Trillion student debt crisis in the United States greatly impacts mental health and life decisions such as career path, housing and even family planning. For the second year in a row, First Aid Beauty is committing $1 Million+ through the FAB AID initiative to pay off student loans and help graduates get off to a smooth start as they begin the next chapter of their lives.

Annah P., a teacher and 2020 FAB AID winner from College Station, Texas, says, "You have no idea how much this means to me. I feel like I just like lost this weight that I've been carrying for so long and so many tears that I've shed over these loans…This is a very happy ending to a really rough year." ($91,765 paid off)

Hear from more 2020 winners here.

Says First Aid Beauty Founder and CEO Lilli Gordon, "Student debt remains a crippling burden for graduates in 2021, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll. We were overjoyed to be able to award so many deserving individuals in 2020, and we are excited to grow the program this year to relieve student debt for a broader group of eligible graduates."
