Do you have a grandmother? Do you know anyone who lives in a senior home/nursing home? Were you ever a teen girl who was a bit insecure and needed guidance and inspiration from some cool women who'd "been there/done that"? Were you ever a teen girl who loved beauty products? If you're a guy, are you the dad of a teenage daughter, or the uncle of a teenage niece? Okay, enough questions... I would imagine you've said yes to at least one of them. GlamourGals is an amazing organization that teaches leadership skills to teen girls by allowing groups of them to visit female residents of senior homes and provide them with makeovers--manicures, facials, etc. The girls get to know these older women and see for themselves that the elderly still have a lot to offer in terms of advice, inspiration, and just plain old great stories--once upon a time, these octo- and nonagenerian women were young women who loved to share beauty advice and yes, liked to talk about boys—just like teen girls do today. I have been involved with GlamourGals as a member of the Advisory Board for about 10 years now, and I have also served as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the past few years. Anyone who hears about GG sees the brilliance of it, and wants to help it grow. And we have many ways you can do just that: Want to write a big check to help support us? We'd love you to! Want to help at one of our events? We'll tell you what volunteer opportunities we have. Work for a company that sponsors events for good causes? Let us know—the press loves GG so your company will get great exposure. My enthusiasm for GlamourGals never flags. I promise you if you get involved, you will have a smile on your face every time you talk about it.
