|Teresa and me|
Another reason this Beauty & Wellness Day was particularly touching was because I learned this would likely be our last one at Goldwater. The location will be closing to make room for a Cornell University Campus. A new, smaller Goldwater will re-open in Harlem, but it will accommodate less than half of the residents.
will be forced to live independently for the first time in years and others will have to find a way to live with family or friends.

As always, I am so thankful to help produce this special event. Big thanks to all who make it possible: Ron Becker, Director of Therapeutic Recreation, and his wonderful staff, Trisha Duval, Founder of Angelica Organization, the amazing team of makeup artists, hair stylists and energy healers. I also want to thank green beauty brands Kahina Giving Beauty and 100% Pure for donating their products to give away to the residents... awesomeness!
If you have ever wanted to donate your time, talents... or products, I encourage you to make it a priority! The rewards are abundant and priceless. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be a part of our next Beauty & Wellness Day.
