I connected with Terry in 2010, inspiring me to create the Chica Bracelet which symbolizes the powerful action of banding women together in support of another.
In 2010, her non profit inspired me to create the Chica Bracelet which symbolizes the powerful action of banding women together in support of another, empowering women to live better lives. EM’s mission is to transform shelters for women and children into environments that inspire psychological and behavioral changes.
A haven is created where women and children rebuilding their lives are reminded everyday they hold the ''golden ticket'' to transforming their dreams into reality. I was able to see myself in this message and am hoping that through the women we’ll feature in this column you too will find the beauty in giving and how to can be an agent of change in someone else’s life.
I am blessed and honored to walk along a path with the amazing men and women of Enchanted Makeovers. Terry's vision of compassion, love, valuing, and truly seeing us as more alike than different, fills my heart with true joy and hope. I have been involved with hundreds of non-profits in my 15 years as an advocate to end violence and I have never seen an organization have the heart that EM possesses and shares with everyone they encounter. Words hardly express the level of change that is created in each of us as we transform space together and transform ourselves. I am a new member to this team and I could not be more grateful to connect with this incredible group. EnchantedMmakeover is revolutionary, brave, courageous, and is changing our world!!! It certainly has changed mine!!!!
I was introduced to Enchanted Makeovers at a screening in Staten Island earlier this year. To say I was touched and humbled is an understatement. I later met Terry at the "She is Me" event back in July. Terry and Enchanted Makeovers are on a mission to change and uplift the lives of women by first enhancing their surroundings, and as a result, their physical and emotional outlook on life. The end result are women who are transformed, with renewed purpose, willingness to strive and a desire to achieve their goals. Terry understands that what the women and children of the shelter require are love, care and hope, and they provide loads through the rebuilding and refurbishing projects that the EM crew undertakes so brilliantly. I guess you can say Terry and Enchanted Makeovers have become the "wind beneath the women and children's wings." I am very excited and honored to now be a part of this awesome and inspiring organization that provides love and hope to women and children who are desperately in need.
