Day of Beauty for special needs young adults!

I am so proud and excited, I just had to blog @ this event.  The 7th annual Day of Beauty event is coming up on Monday, May 3.  My cousin's daughter, Rachel, is a BIG fan of this event.  She looks forward to it every year and talks @ it all year long.  After being a volunteer last year, I can now understand why.  It is a day I'll never forget.  It was so much fun.  100+ loving young adults who are being pampered, a Day of Beauty, many for the first time in their lives!   

If you are reading this and are in the Atlanta market, consider volunteering.  There is so much to do.  Please also spread the word.  Gloria (event founder & organizer) needs all kinds of "talent" (stylists, nail techs, chair massage and more) plus "no talent" (like me, we get the kids to their next appointment, etc).  Lunch is provided for all so she needs food donated too.  This event is 100% free of charge to the students and their teachers and is 100% due to Gloria's labor of love along with the many volunteers (individuals and businesses).  So tell whoever cuts your hair, does your nails, massage, do you eat lunch @ the same place every day?!!!  Lots of volunteers and "stuff" needed. 

Visit the website for more information and/or to volunteer.  http://www.mydayofbeauty.net/
