Letter: Thanks to the Staff at Belleza

To the Editor:

On Monday, Sept. 30, Belleza Beauty Salon in the Powerhouse Mall in West Lebanon dedicated an entire day to raising money for charity. Instead of taking their usual Monday off, the staff at Belleza worked all day on clients and donated all proceeds and tips to Forgirlsake — an organization whose mission is to help girls through education. This year Forgirlsake is working in northern Ghana to help 60 girls attend high school. Belleza owner, Nicole Boylan, and her incredible staff worked for months getting community members to donate items to a raffle, promote the event, and help Jayne Costello cook a delicious lunch of tapas for the entire salon. The event was a huge success, raising over $4,400. Everyone walked away with a sense of great satisfaction. Community members, donors and Belleza staff all played a part in creating positive change. We were all reminded that you always get more when you give back. Thank you to everyone who made the Forgirlsake event at Belleza such a success!
