Hairstylist Vanessa Howard gives back to the homeless women in her community in the most amazing way. Once a month, Vanessa, her five daughters and, volunteers get together and give homeless women makeovers.
The process usually takes about six to eight hours for a transformation. A lot of these women are struggling and some are victims of domestic violence. Her hair salon is called Giving Hands; the perfect name for what Vanessa does for her community.
Vanessa has been giving makeovers for homeless women for about four years. This month the salon is helping young homeless girls get ready for the school year by throwing a "Back To School Princess Party".
During this event Vanessa gives each girl a makeover and gives them uniforms, backpacks, and any other necessities they will need for school. Vanessa says giving is contagious and encourages all of us to look around and find ways to be blessings to others in big and small ways.
What an amazing story of how God is using Vanessa's gifts and talents to help others.
