Supporting Bonnie's three incredible children by securing their educational future

Main image

We are proud to launch our GiveALittle page to celebrate the life of our friend and colleague Bonnie Shanahan and to ensure that we support her three incredible children by securing their educational future, something that Bonnie and Martin value deeply for each of them.

Bonnie has been part of the Estee Lauder Companies since July 2006, and has touched each of our lives in many ways; a supportive colleague, an energetic leader to her team, a brilliant mother and wife. She has been devoted equal parts to work and family and serves as a true example for us all. During her 14 years with our company, she has also been a critical leader for our philanthropic initiatives in New Zealand.

In celebration of her life, contributions for Eloise (age 11), Ludi (age 9) and Daniel (age 6) can be made here and I will personally match any donation that is contributed to this fund. Bonnie will be remembered for her strength, love and pride that she took in her children, husband and personal accomplishments both within our organization and at home. She was a bright light and will be deeply missed.

Warm regards,

Jane Lauder

Global Brand President, Clinique

The Estee Lauder Companies

A word from Marty describing their three children,

“Eloise, also called Cheeky by her Mum and Dad loves performing and dancing, she has a huge heart and is loved by her many friends.

Ludi has sparkly green eyes and a sweet tooth just like her Mum, she loves animals and is a budding musician and talented artist.

Daniel is full of energy and loves getting active outdoors, no matter the weather you can find him in shorts and is shaping up to be the next great cook of the family, easily making scrambled eggs for everyone.”
