Kidd's Kids Glam

In case you can’t tell, I’m a girly girl. I always have been, even when I was little. I’ve always loved playing with makeup and doing my hair and there was a time I flat out refused to wear pants. It was nothing but dresses for this girly girl! So when we decided to take Kidd’s Kids Glam, I couldn’t have been happier.

 

You probably know about the Kidd’s Kids trip, where we take chronically and terminally ill kids and their families to Disney World, but you may not know about Kidd’s Kids Glam. My dad came up with the idea several years ago to expand the Kidd’s Kids reach to kids that didn’t get to go on the trip. The original concept was a spa-type makeover day for young girls who were stuck in the hospital. They might have been in the hospital recovering from surgery or receiving in-patient care. Or maybe they were in for observation or for follow up check-ups. But they all had one thing in common. They needed a little pick me up! So, being a glamour girl myself, I decided to revamp the program a bit. You know, give it a little makeover. (See what I did there? 😉 )

Most of the girls are “tweens”, and I can tell you from experience, those years can be a really awkward time in a girl’s life. Your body is changing and doing weird things. You’re trying to figure out who you are while still trying to fit in. And now these girls have to deal being sick and in and out of hospitals on top of everything else? It’s gotta be tough! So maybe Kidd’s Kids Glam could help …

We start with a team of professionals and go full on glam for these girls! Manicures and makeup, facials and fancy hairstyles … We do it up! We give the girls a swag bag filled with some beauty goodies and then bring a DJ so we can get our dance party on. And if you’re confined to your room and can’t make it to the party room, we send the glam to you! NO sweet girl is safe from getting her glam on!

This weekend, Kidd’s Kids Glam was in New Orleans at Children’s Hospital of New Orleans but we’ve done one in Dallas as well and I’m really looking forward to expanding the program into other cities. As the saying goes, “when you look good, you feel good”. And I want these girls to feel GREAT!
