A social work class on campus is collecting beauty supplies to donate to local women's shelters and agencies. I went to Target today and spent a little over $60 on things to give. And then I wondered how much I spend on myself in a year. Probably more than that.
I heard about a church who did a ministry to single mothers, babysitting their children while women from the congregation who were hairdressers and such gave them makeovers. I think that would be a really cool thing to do. More than once I have thought it would be neat to be a hairdresser, and this made me think about it again.
Then again, if the haircut that I gave my Barbie was any indication of my skill, maybe not...
On a side note (ish), in eighth grade my class went out to JCC's Career Center, where we walked through some of the classes and saw what they did. I mistakenly signed up for cosmetology, reading it as 'cometology' (at this point I'd had my heart set on being an astronaut).
That was a letdown.
