Volunteering with Reveal NYC

Back in February I registered to volunteer with an amazing organization called Reveal NYC. Reveal is a nonprofit that helps women coming out of domestic violent environments and fosters an uplifting community where they can heal and restore their dignities.

Reveal hosts an annual Valentine's Day Makeover event which took place on February 15th this year. Tons of volunteers showed up to help pamper these women with new clothes, facials, hair and makeup makeovers, and a professional photoshoot to show off their fabulous new selves. It was such an honor to be a part of the makeover process and watch these women transform before your eyes with a little bit of lipstick and a new 'do. Anyone who doubts the power of makeup and the confidence it inspires just needs to see the looks on the faces of these women at the end of an event like this.

Thanks, Reveal, for letting me be a part of such an awesome event. Can't wait to see you again next Valentine's Day!
