Our First Event




Look At Me Now!

Toronto's premiere salons and spas have opened their doors to pamper women residing in various shelters in and around the city of Toronto. These women are in transition, rebuilding their lives as they overcome physical, emotional and substance abuse.

It is our intention to give these women a free day at our salons to help renew their spirit and commitment to themselves and their families. Participating salons offer various services for these women to choose from, some of which could include hair services, make-up, aesthetics, massage and more. From a day of pampering we hope these women leave with a renewed sense of self and re-energized to embrace the world.

We hope with continuing support, that we may be able to create this as an annual event complementing International Women’s Day!
