I have been an avid supporter of GlamourGals for the past 11 years, attending both makeovers and events. Having worked as a mental health professional in nursing homes with elderly suffering from depression and loneliness, I experienced firsthand the great need for organizations such as GlamourGals. It is incredibly rewarding and heartwarming to witness the profound impact the makeovers have on the women. The organization is run beautifully by an extraordinarily compassionate, intelligent, and inspirational woman who has changed the lives of thousands of youth and elderly.
I never write reviews and much less give my hard earned money to others. Well now I am doing both.
Not only was I inspired by the mission but I was and still am impressed with the way things are run. I must admit that I grilled the founder for quite some time before giving. Not only was she present but was more than happy to share her vision with me.
Awesome mission and great leadership.
After listening to an inspiring story about this organization, I made a decent sized donation & after it was like a black void. I never heard from anyone, and when I called in several times, no one followed up. I asked to speak to the president directly or the treasurer to see perhaps what the funds were used for or how I could further contribute, but the president never called me back. Unfortunate misdirection of funds that would have been better used elsewhere. Check out She's the First, Girls Who Code & the Girl Effect.

I am a long term donor and supporter of GlamourGals. I cannot write enough wonderful things about this organization and its president, Rachel Doyle. GlamourGals makes a huge difference in the lives of so many older women and young teens. The programs run by GG are exciting, stimulating and wonderful. I have also been to makeovers at the elderly homes. Rachel runs the organization beautifully. Rachel is an inspiring and excellent public speaker. I am proud to give my money to such a wonderful, important cause and plan to be a supporter indefinitely.
I'm a proud supporter of GlamourGals because of the positive impact it makes on our elderly population while concurrently building teen leaders. With my own grandmother living on the other side of the globe, I understand the importance of GlamourGals' mission to end elder loneliness. Each day this organization is changing lives, and I would encourage others to join me in supporting GlamourGals by attending fundraising events or making a donation today.
