Making Mother's Day Beautiful For Everyone

Mother's Day is almost here and maybe you're counting your blessings for having a wonderful Mom who was always there for you. And hopefully you can open your heart to some less fortunate Moms in the DC area.

A dedicated group of local women and students will be delivering 300 gift bags called Beauty Within to homeless mothers temporarily residing with their families at Miriam's House and N Street Village.

If you would like to help they are soliciting donations of beauty products found in swag bags, hotel bath toiletries, gifts with purchase items, and any full-sized unused beauty products to be given to the women. In addition, books, magazines and gently used accessories are appreciated. The deadline to receive items is Thursday, May 6th.

Beauty Within was created 10 years ago by Lynda Erkiletian, president of THE Artist Agency, and the DC chapter of Fashion Group International as a community outreach program to recognize women who are often forgotten. Together with fashion merchandising students from Langley High School in McLean, Virginia, items are solicited, gift bags are embellished and stuffed with items, and then delivered to the shelters in time for Mother's Day.
