How One Teen is Bringing Beauty to Hospitals

Do Something

Who hasn’t at one time or another (or maybe, still do) dread going to hospital? Imagine having to spend 6 weeks there. Yea, not that appealing right?

    At first I thought it was a simple idea of bringing girls some make up in hospitals so that they can feel beautiful and I was already preparing my arguments for that. Ha, shows me. I have nothing to object to pampering and good-heartedness! Hope that the products are also non-chemicals and don't come from those big hypocritical companies... they would for sure use this to market their product as being "saviors" or necessary to get better mood or holiness or whatnot (just like we know a lot of them use breast cancer for targeting a market of well intending people)

    all in all this looks nice. i think if this has funds it could be nice to slip a book or a comic strip in! :)

    What an awesome project! I can definitely understand why this has been so impactful. There's something about a box full of goodies that is comforting in any situation :)
