Recently, we helped with a small donation to an important fundraiser benefitting Casa de Amparo – An organization that assists neglected and mistreated children. The kids in the organization are all kids who need a little extra attention in their lives, and we greatly appreciate our friend (and former Weddings of Distinction member) Tiffany Arnaldo for organizing a super special day/fundraiser called the “Day of Beauty.”
The intent of the day was for all the kids to feel pampered, to feel as though there were at a spa! The day was not just about providing the kids with beauty products but more so about making them feel special. There were thirteen boys and girls, ranging in age from 9-18.
Thanks to generous donations from local businesses in San Diego, this day was a rousing success. Over $800 was raised, and ll the boys and girls received amazing gift bags with personalized hair and skin care items and well as providing the home with a flat iron, curling rod, blow dryer and hair trimmer (for the young men).
We at Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. donated various cookie platters to keeps the kids’ bellies full, and while it seemed small to us, the kids were so happy. That makes our job: happiness!
