Thursday we held my 4th Annual Mommy Makeovers. along with my foundation, the Egypt Cares Family Foundation [ECFF), Black Opal Cosmetics, AMBI, the Island of Aruba, and Sister 2 Sister Media.
Hosted at Hair Design by Future Vision salon, ten deserving moms - Helena Fountain, Martha Newton, Sandra Surrey-Davison, Nancy Grimes, Deborah Brown, Antoinette Woods, Tibet Crowder, Renee Jones, Charlene Carter and Faith Ware - received complete hair, make-up and wardrobe styling, while munching on treats provided by Gourmet Express.
Sister 2 Sister Magazine publisher/brand ambassador, Jamie Foster Brown, was presented with the "Mompreneur Of The Year" award for her devotion as a mother, the 25-year legacy she's built at the helm of her Sister2Sister Media empire, and her commitment to using her media platforms to uplift communities across the country.
One of the days highlights was when one of the moms, Helena Fountain, won the giveaway - an all-expense paid trip to Aruba!
Our annual Mommy Makeovers event has always been very close to my heart, but now that I am a mom myself, it has a whole new meaning to me! Motherhood is the most challenging yet rewarding job I could ever have in my lifetime. It was such an overwhelming feeling to pamper and celebrate everyday women who have endured so much and are still standing tall through it all.
