A few years ago after reading Jackie Hance's book I tried to get Beautiful Me at the school in which I teach. At that time it never panned out. Too many conflicts on our side. But since then I have followed them and can't believe the work that they do in schools. Recently my daughters had the opportunity to film with Beautiful Me and it changed all of us. This is an organization that wants to give. They have a message to share and everyone should be listening. I fell so strongly about this program that I am proposing it to be at my daughters' schools and hoping that it can be a part of my school's girls' club. Thank you Jackie and Warren Hance for making my girls see more than just their cell phones.

I have been so amazed at Jackie and Warrens for being so generous of there feelings and emotions. They truly are so amazing what a wonderful thing they have done, starting the foundation, after there life changing loss. All the young girls that have been apart of the Beautiful Me class will all grow up to be better for it. I have volunteered and seen first hand how special Jackie & Warren are and Beautiful Me.

What started out as tragedy and heartache, has grown into something truly beautiful.
I have been involved with this foundation from its inception and could not be prouder of how it has grown and all that is has accomplished to help children.

Beautiful Me is truly special. I have an inside look at this program not only having taught it myself- but having my own daughters go through it as well. This program has touched so many girls. (over 25,000 now!!!) Girls needs to know their value and their beauty. This program helps them to realize their self worth. And by doing it through the life lessons of Emma, Aly and Katie, it helps to keep their memory alive. I know firsthand how important that is.

Beautiful Me is delivered in a way that girls feel free to speak openly and candidly. This safe environment allows them to truly reveal things about themselves that are so special. They are treasured. This creates strong women.

Classes are taught by strong women. Women who dedicate their time to support this cause. I highly recommend people to volunteer within this organization. It is an honor to be able to honor 3 angels. There are so many different ways that you can help since it is involved in so many wonderful projects.

This foundation gives all year round. The holiday toy drive is truly amazing. I have witnessed the pure joy on a child's face receiving a Christmas present, knowing it is the only one that he/she will get that year. The impact that HFF has has on the inner city communities is enormous.

I know how proud Emma, Aly & Kate are of their parents for creating this foundaiton in their honor. I am proud to support the HFF in any way possible. I have seen the many programs in action (Beautiful Me, Grow with Me, Toy drive, School Supply drive) and feel it is a privilege to be a part of it.

Beautiful Me is a wonderful program that honors the lives of three young girls taken too early from this earth. The program emphasizes helping one another, being kind and understanding your own individual uniqueness. I have seen and felt first hand the profound affect that the Beautiful Me program has on the females who are lucky enough to be part of it. Beautiful Me increases self-confidence, self-esteem and self-concept through creative expression, conversation, and action. Females young and old will benefit from this program tremendously.

I am incredibly proud of our foundation. Behind the scenes, we have become a huge team of generous people who give selflessly and ask nothing in return. Our program, Beautiful Me, extends the examples taught by my three daughters--Emma, Alyson and Katie. I believe that they are the reason so many work tirelessly to bring Beautiful Me to thousands of participants. We are now experts in the field of self-esteem and we welcome you to join us. Thank you for keeping Emma, Alyson and Katie in your hearts.

Quite simply, this foundation and the three extraordinary sisters in whose honor it was created, Emma, Alyson and Katie Hance, are positively changing countless lives, not just of Beautiful Me participants, who are given the priceless gift of self-esteem, but of everyone with whom they will now confidently share their individual personalities and unique strengths and talents.

The Hance Family Foundation through the Beautiful Me Program empowers girls to have pride and dignity in themselves. My Girl Scout troop participated in this program and they loved it. What they learned will carry on with them through their lives. Thank you for all that you do.

I have seen, first hand, the optimism that is awakened in so many females after participating in the Beautiful Me program. Often, typically shy or withdrawn females find that they are comfortably able to express themselves and be true to themselves with the help of this program. Outgoing, outspoken girls learn the power of confidence, humility and friendship and how to be the best people they can be. Everyone learns the power of individuality, acceptance, friendship and trust. The Beautiful Me program inspires adults, teens and children to accept themselves and others and realize the power and strength that comes from within.
