Beauty Night Society, an Award winning volunteer based charity, builds self esteem and changes lives of women and youth living in poverty through wellness, life skills development and makeovers.  Through community events held at shelters, drop-in centres and health care facilities; they bring hope, joy and friendship to women living in poverty.  

 

10% of the proceeds of my artwork sold is donated to Beauty Night. This charity is dear to my heart as, due to personal experiences, I can relate and empathize with many of the participants .  Volunteering is rewarding on many levels as the simple power of human touch can have such a positive impact on someone's life.

 

Serving seniors, youth, as well as mothers and their children, these programs are more than skin deep; they build self esteem and provide a sense of self worth to those who feel abandoned, neglected, and anonymous if not invisible. Beauty Night endeavors to give these women back their identity, their humanity, and to remind them that hope is never lost.
