Receiving is one thing, but giving back is a whole other feeling!
Give and Receive was a successful event which provided free make-up and hair services for over 200 women and girls in Ottawa, Canada during an empowering and fun afternoon.
When Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Team contacted me in March to offer me her whole FENTY BEAUTY Collection, I was touched and shocked. The first thing that came to my mind was "WOW" and the second thought was "Let's honor their gift and share with the community!"
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing happiness on other people's faces when they are granted the same grace as you! And so, I rallied my friends at Curly Hair Designs in Ottawa, led by the incredible Community Builder Paula Whitelocke (owner of Curly Hair designs) and Orchid Cosmetics led by another amazing Femme, Thani Anderson who led an army of make-up artists who donated their time and products to put a smile on the faces of deserving women in the Ottawa/Gatineau region.
In exchange of the Free service that they received, the women and girls were asked to bring hygienic products for local women shelters.
The event was a true success which provided the women shelters with over hundreds of hygienic goods.
