Even thou I am redesigning my career I still try to keep myself centered and I am always always counting my blessings. And here is one of the biggest one of them: my organization Kindle my Heart did one more event last Sunday and it was fabulous! We invited girls from the Starlight Children’s Foundation and they brought along their moms and sisters. The event was called “Mommy & Me” and it was a Beauty Day hosted at the Cao Institute – a Paul Mitchell Salon in Pasadena.
Most of the the participants were amazing girls that happen to be in cancer remission. Those beautiful teenagers are winners and I am so touched for being part of their Mother’s day celebration. The concept of this event was to provide a relaxing salon experience where moms and daughters would get pampered by getting their hair wash including a scalp massage, their hair trimmed and styled and make up. At the end two of the volunteers taught the girls to do the catwalk and the moms watched them showcasing their new look at the runway!
Kindle my Heart lovely volunteers and friends:
And let me tell you what i got from all that:
. Ideas not only can – but they do become a reality!
. It would be great to have a personal assistant (lol)
. You can’t do a big project on your own but it can be beautifully done if you ask for help
. There is more people out there willing to help you then you could ever imagine
. When confused or sad about your life, go help others – it is a grand experience to get out of your own self
. And there is NOTHING in the whole wide world more rewarding than witnessing this…
This event was part of a program called “Great Scapes” from the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Their goal is to provide a family bonding for those who had struggled with a sick family member. I believe we accomplished the goal and we are already having many new ideas for others events to come! If you wish to help their foundation or if you have an idea for a ‘Great Scapes” let me know so I will give you the coordinator contact info – she is pretty amazing!
