This year Ahmed, Li Rongle and I have decided to do something special to celebrate our birthdays - paying it forward.

Instead of receiving gifts, we encourage all of our friends to support Beauty Night Society, a charity that helps women and youth living in poverty in downtown eastside of Vancouver.

We believe that if you want to feel good, do good to others! Even a small act of kindness can make a difference in someone's life.

February is a magic month for us, and we want to make it very special for those women and children in need. Help us support beauty nights for them in February. 

To all our lovely friends: Any donation to this cause will be the best birthday gift for us!

All money goes straight to the Paypal account of the Charity.

(To donate a process is: click GIVE -> Continue -> Pay with Paypal -> Buy as a Guest -> Enter your Credit / Debit card details -> Pay -> Login in with FB (so we know our sweet donors) -> Publish your donation)

What is Beauty Night Society?

Beauty Night Society is a registered Canadian charity that builds self esteem and changes lives of women and youth living in poverty in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside by providing programs on wellness, life skills development and makeovers.

Beauty Night Society believes that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

Regardless of social and economic status, no one deserves to be invisible and isolated from a community. When people get together to celebrate, laugh and become friends, they start believing change is possible. If people do not believe change is possible, change will not happen. Beauty Night welcomes their participants as they are. They come in, make friends, access services, and many change their lives for good.

Some of the services offered within these programs are:

Welness: foot care, relaxation massage, homeopathy, fitness, yoga classes and more.

Life Skills Development: Stress Management workshops, Goal Setting, Education and more. 

Makeovers: Hair cuts, Skin cleansing, brow shaping, manicures and pedicures.

People come in to access services, make friends, share stories, laugh and receive support for life changing choices.

Who does Beauty Night Society serve?

1/3 seniors
1/3 mothers & children
1/3 street youth & survival sex workers.

Beauty Night Society serves 250 impoverished women each week.
Homelessness, hunger, mental ill health and debilitating illnesses are some of the reasons people connect with Beauty Night Society. 1 in 3 women have experienced sexual violence before the age of 18.

4 nights a week, the charity offers wellness, life skills development and makeovers for its participants.

The “beauty nights” take place at shelters, health care facilities and transition homes.

Why Makeover?

Human contact is vital to human beings. 90% of women in correctional facilities have dealed with sexual abuse before the age of 18. The makeover is a great opportunity to reintroduce healthy touch in a non-threatening way and build relationships based on trust with the participants.

Going through difficult times can be easier when you have friends to listen, love & help when needed.

           Love, Laughter, Friendship and Self Worth can enhance your smile.

When we have hope, belief and respect, take care of ourselves, it feels good to throw our shoulders back and stand strong as we move forward.

We can help these women build confidence and keep moving forward.
Please help us support Beauty Night Society! Spread the word of this great cause and pay it forward!

Thank you so much!

WIth love,

Ahmed, Li Rongle, Tatyana.
