Help Homeless Moms This Mother's Day!

This is a fantastic idea, and I thought I would put a call out to all of the talented hair and makeup people I know. UMOM New Day Center in Phoenix is hosting their 3rd-annual Mother's Day photo shoot for the residents of this wonderful facility. UMOM assists over 3,000 homeless individuals annually, providing transitional housing, emergency shelter, domestic violence assistance, and the tools to foster independent living. The Family Is Forever photo shoot will give these mothers something they may never have experienced -- a professional photo of themselves and their children. UMOM is looking for professional hairstylists and makeup artists who are willing to donate their time and talent to make these ladies look and feel beautiful.

Shifts will be from either 8am to 12pm, or 12 to 3pm. The shoot takes place on Mother's Day, May 8th, at the UMOM center at 3333 East Van Buren Road in Phoenix. Information is on their website, or call volunteer Jennifer Todd at 480.225.4412.

Volunteers will receive either breakfast or lunch with their shift, and partial shifts can be arranged. This is a great event for these families, and one they will never forget. Be a part of making these women feel great inside and out!

With all that Life has to offer,
