Greetings Friends & Family,
I AM BEAUTY Inc. is a New York City based socially conscious organization focused on the development of girls and women to build confidence, exceptional character and leadership. We aim to empower girls and women to be B.E.A.U.T.Y.(Beautiful, Extraordinary, Ambitious, Unlimited, Talented and Young).
In April of 2016, we led a service trip, Operation Healing Haiti,at the Haitian American Caucus School (Institution Mixte Shalom Des Freres) located in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. We worked with students from the ages of 3-17 providing art and play therapy, self-esteem workshops, fitness classes, hair styling services, holistic healing, meditation, journaling classes, and web development. We were are able to provide healing and support for almost 300 students on this service trip. With your support we were able to provide schools supplies, educational resources and other items the school needed.
From November 13-17, 2017, I AM BEAUTY Inc will be traveling back to Haiti to provide our signature confidence building bootcamp style workshops and self love activities at Institution Mixte Shalom Des Freres, in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti.
In the workshops, students will:
- Gain self-esteem tips and participate in exercises to boost confidence;
- Learn positive affirmations to practice gratitude and positive thinking;
- Participate in self-discovery exercises to identify strengths and talents;
- Create vision boards and vision statements to help formulate life goals;
- Become aware of limiting beliefs and discover the power of letting go;
- Be empowered and inspired to reach their fullest potential; and
- Receive beauty packages, including an ‘I AM BEAUTY” Haiti t-shirt.
We are raising $2,500 by November 5, 2017 and we would love to have your support with a financial contribution.
We need support with purchasing items requested by the school, shipping costs, workshop materials and I AM BEAUTY Haiti shirts. There are 350 scholars, so no amount is too large or too small. Our 501c(3) organization , Generations Inspired Inc funds all of our programs for teens and global service initiatives. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
Your donation will be instrumental in impacting children’s lives. Thank you for supporting us in meeting our mission on this global service trip.
