Bianca's Nail Salon with a Cause
Organized by: Bianca Perez
Hello everyone. My name is Bianca. I am a licensed nail technician with a passion for nails and the homeless community. You see, at one point recently my husband and I became homeless and were forced to live in our car for six months. Going through that experience changed me forever in many ways. It opened my eyes to see that I could impact the homeless community in a way no one else can. Many people see nail grooming as a luxury. For those who have health issues such as diabetes, it is a necessity. I have seen many homeless who are unable to care for their hands and feet to their homeless situation. I am asking for funds to be able to take a course to be a licensed medical nail technician and to purchase and convert a box truck into a nail salon and fit it with everything needed for a fully functioning nail salon. My goal is to reach the homeless community to remind them there is a way out of homelessness and that there are people who aren't afraid to look them in the eye, hold their hands and help them get back on track. I strongly feel that this could help the homeless find hope and with everyones help, maybe even help them become employed and one person at a time end homelessness.
