Project Description

 

No matter what life circumstances are presented to them or their family as a whole, every child deserves the opportunity to look and feel their best. This opportunity is not always present and because of that, Beauty OTM is stepping up. Established in partnership with 501c3 non-profit organization Motherhood Community Inc., we exist to give that opportunity to youth who live in foster care, shelters or come from low-income families. 

 

The Beauty of the Month program provides deserving and underprivileged students one free hair care service, from a licensed professional hair stylist. Our goal is to service and bring a new found confidence to as many students as possible throughout the school year. Making a positive impact in the lives of our youth, is what Beauty OTM strives for.

 

Right now, we are facing the challenge of having a secure location to service these youth. Our goal is to purchase a permanent building in which we can consistently provide free professional hair care services to touch the lives of as many underprivileged youth as we possibly can, but we can't do it alone. Beauty of the Month needs your help in making an impact. No matter the size of your donation, big or small..your contribution is planting a seed that will change a life. While we are navigating through this pandemic together, many will be left struggling to pick up the pieces. As we look to meet our goal, we look forward to having a space where the youth can turn to for a bright spot of hope. Once the aftermath has settled, Beauty OTM wants to be a leader and lending hand to the underprivileged students directly affected by COVID-19. With your help, we can make a difference!

 

Thank you in advance!

 

100% of donations will be used toward building costs.
