Fashion for Charity Week: GlamourGals
We are continuing Fashion for Charity Week on The Lovely 20’s with GlamourGals!
GlamourGals is a nonprofit organization that provides complimentary beauty makeovers and companionship to women living in senior homes. GlamourGals was founded by Rachel Doyle, a fellow Cornell graduate (so I love her even more), who started the organization to honor her grandmother.
She actually founded GlamourGals when she was in – wait for it – HIGH SCHOOL. OMG, when I was in high school, I was all about boys and the 5 lbs I have to lose…but she starts a nonprofit organization.
Anyway, moving on, Rachel says, “A GlamourGal is confident, compassionate and fashionable.” Since it’s birth ten years ago, GlamourGals has garnered an extensive network of volunteers. And she knows how to keep them inspired!
Every year, GlamourGals holds the Glammy Awards where the organization recognizes volenteers who have gone above and beyond their call of duty. Complete with special guests, a hot pink carpet (the organization’s signature color), and a backstage beauty lounge, it was an all around fabulous and successful event. This year’s Glammy Awards were particularly special because it is the organization’s tenth anniversary.
If you want to be a GlamourGal, visit their site on glamourgals.org. They have a goal of reaching 1,000,000 intergenerational service hours by 2015 so join in on the effort! You can also connect with them online by “liking” their Facebook page here and following them on Twitter @glamourgals.
