Having interacted and covered quite a number of start-ups on the blog over the past 6 years, I admit that I do not stay in touch with many of them. How have they done fast forward years later?
I am not sure how many of you remember Let’s Care and Celebrate!, a charity campaign started by me in 2010 to commemorate the first anniversary of MsGlitzy.com. The aim of the campaign is to help other women to rebuild their lives and regain their confidence.
After a hiatus of one year in 2011, the campaign has made a quiet comeback this year. I wanted to spend more time interacting directly with the girls or women in need. By chance and referral, I got to know Beautiful People, a volunteer group that supports teenage girls on probation as they reintegrate into society. With their help, we had our first makeup workshop for the year at Pertapis Centre for Women and Girls on Saturday morning.
The trainer for this workshop was Joy Tan from The Style Atelier. She was a really great trainer, constantly engaging the seven participants and checking on their strokes and application. We would also like to thank Maybelline Singapore for their generous sponsorship of makeup products for the participants.
