When I think of the holidays I think of food, family, friends, and giving back to those who don’t have much.
I’ve always been a person who believes in giving back. From my point of view, I’ve been given so much opportunity in my career and personal life that I wholeheartedly believe it’s my responsibility to help to those who need it the most.
Luckily, I often get the opportunity because I have so many clients that reach out and ask for donation of services and product for silent auctions. Sometimes, I can provide these things just as gifts to young women who don’t have access to quality hair care. As a hairstylist I feel it’s part of my duty to give free services to young people in need — especially younger women. Every young woman wants to feel beautiful and have gorgeous hair. I often donate my time through Florence Crittenton which helps me connect with individuals in need.
If I can be that person who donates these services to help that person feel better about themselves, especially around the holidays, then I will make it happen. I also usually try to raise a few gifts for children — there are just so many ways to give back!
This time of year is not just about gifts and shopping for deals. We should all be reminded just how blessed we truly are and that alone should be inspiration to give back to others during the holiday season.
