Hi Beautiful People,

My birthday comes up on Saturday, November 22nd. Many people have asked me what do I want. I want to help Beauty Night Society give 50 000 makeovers to impoverished women and youth by the end of 2014.

Most of you know that I founded Beauty Night in 2000. I was volunteering at WISH Drop In Centre's soup kitchen in Vancouver's DTES to do research for a docu - drama about survival sex trade recruitment that can happen to young girls. 

One night when I was volunteering a woman came in. She did not want to eat, speak, or for us to call for help. She said she wanted to "feel clean." After she had a shower, we found her clean clothes. There was a curling iron at the bottom of the donations. She plugged it in. When it got hot enough to curl her hair, she realized she needed some help. Her arm had been injured. I did her hair and she thanked me for making her "feel human."

From there Beauty Night has grow to include over 500 volunteers offering services in Vancouver, Surrey, Burnaby, New West and Toronto. Currently we need to raise $12 000 to be able to reach our goal of 50 000 people served by Dec 31, 2014.

The biggest reason we are short is we are running on a budget of $45K each year and serving 300 people each week. We are working on the same budget since 2009 but in 2009 we were only serving 100 people each week. We also have 34 organizations on wait list for our programming. At this time we do not have the resources to meet the growing need for our work.

Every $24 raised enables us to help 10 women each year. 

Please make a donation and spread the word. It would be the very best birthday present you could give me. If you could see the smiles on our participant's faces when they attend a beauty night, you would understand why this is so important to me and to our community. I will continue to share their stories and snap shots from different Beauty Nights until Dec 31st, 2014. Thank you.
