On Saturday I attended a benefit for The Shine Project. This amazing organization helps at-risk youth to earn money and scholarships to go to school. Through their jewelry company Threads, they employ these students to make fabulous jewelry while learning to be self-reliant, hard workers. Did I mention how fabulous their jewelry is? Oh, yeah… I did.

The Shine Project also does bi-weekly service projects with inner-city kids, teaches them leadership skills and encourages them to make the world a better place.

Listening to the kids stories was inspiring. For many of them they are or will be the first in their families to attend college.

It’s not often I get out for an evening of pampering but I’m glad I was able to escape for a few hours. They did my hair (thanks Salon 7000), nails and eyebrows, and bonus, I got to hang with some really great women!
