Terry has made it her life's mission to help empower women from all walks of life. She is fully committed to changing the lives of women and children one makeover at a time. I believe that she truly cares for every person she meets and her compassion really shows.
I found out about Enchanted Makeovers a few years ago when I was invited to be the dinner speaker at their event in Jersey City, NJ called The Journey-Discovering Our Inner Treasures. I was delighted when I arrived to see what magic founder and director Terry Grahl and a host of volunteers were creating for the women and children at the York Project Shelter. Not only were they transforming the building, but indeed, forever transforming lives. Even now as I think about it, it brings goosebumps. I remember clearly having the thought that the physical makeovers for the women (clothing, hair, nails and makeup) didn't make them any more beautiful than they already were inside. The love that was showered on them brought forth their inner beauty. They walked tall and proud. Bless you Terry for all the good you do in the world. I will continue to write and speak about Enchanted Makeovers any chance I get.
