Beauty of Compassion
Organized by: Maude Agenor
I wanted to reach out to you as a fellow beautician in the industry for your love and support with my upcoming spa in Portland, Oregon. I would love to have someone like you share my vision and passion in what we do in helping client’s look and feel beautiful.
I'm sure many of you are independent hairdressers, nail techs, and estheticians, who can relate to the quest of starting on your own. Maybe this this sounds familiar to when you started...overwhelmed? little to no support? financially strapped? but yet passionate and driven?
What may have seemed impossible is done! Here you are enjoying the difference you’re making in your own unique way, and enjoying the freedom of your time and space to do it. I would love to have that myself! Thank you for paving the way. My goal is to rent a room as an independent esthetician. I'm huge believer that there is room for growth and success for everyone in this industry.
My goal with my spa is to specialize in holistic skin care (inner beauty outer glow), ethnic skin care, problematic skin (acne, rosacea, mature, etc.), and something really unique and special is services in oncology esthetics. Can you imagine how rewarding it will feel to help does battling cancer with their appearance!? I really look forward to the continuing education within this industry.
My secondary goal is to make a difference within the community and our industry. I have a vision of being involved as an advocate and philanthropist. What came to mind was helping women who are victims of homelessness and sex trafficking.
Currently I'm establsiging a relationship within non-profit organizations in the Portland/Seattle metropolitan who assist victims of homeless/ sex trafficking. So what can we do? Right now we can assist these women in having access to quality feminine hygiene products and cosmetics; natural tampons, deodorant, lotions, body wash, lip balms, and snacks. I've displayed a demo of this would look like; on Instagram follow Beauty of Compassion Box. These boxes will be sent to a few organizations that I've chosen (Raphael House, Pear Youth, Janus Youth Program, Seattle Against Slavery, Yellow Brick Road, and more to come in the future). I currently volunteer with Pear Youth as a mentor.
With that being said I want to start the process of creating BEST Foundation (Beauticians Ending Sex Trafficking Foundation). I’m grateful for my sociology degree that’s coming in hand for this cause. This is where 20% of your donations will go towards feminine hygiene products and assisting with the setup of BEST Foundation as a 501(c) (3) organization. I hope you can see the vision of the difference we can make!
