That Adopted Girl Events Update 2016/17

Standard

WE WEREN’T THE BEST ABOUT UPDATING EVENTS ON THE WEBSITE LAST YEAR SO WE FIGURED WE WOULD PROVIDE A RECAP TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT WE WERE UP TO WITH THIS TINY BUT POWERFUL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION!

 

JANUARY – SWEET

Self-Worth Encourage Empower Thrive

20 girls

Started the morning with a self worth exercise (“shadow box”) where the girls made a collage of everything the show to the world on the outside of the box and everything they hide from the world on the inside of the box and we talked about why they hide what they hide, and what they could potentially gain and give by sharing their truth.

Next had mac make-up artists lead a tutorial and he gave amazing mac makeup gift bags.

We then had lunch catered by a local sandwich shop and headed to JM Hair Galleries for hair styling and positive life advice.

After the salon the girls headed to the Jeff Civillico family friendly show at the Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip.  It was a blast!

Finished the night off with family style dinner at Lindo Michoachan.

 

 

FEBRUARY – SELF LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY EVENT

25 girls

Italian family style dinner, dancing, roses, boxed chocolates, cupcakes and a presentation and conversation surrounding the importance of loving one self and knowing one’s worth.

 

MARCH – EASTER BASKETS

Hand crafted 26 Easter baskets for girls in the foster care system!

 

JULY – BIRTHDAY WINE FUNDRAISER

Being an adopted kid, Founder Juliana Whitney can get bit emotional on her birthday.  Instead of focusing too much on herself she wanted to use her day of adoption to help kids in the foster care system by turning her birthday celebration into a fundraiser.  Wine tasting fundraiser at Khoury’s Fine Wine and Spirits.

 

 

NOVEMBER HOLIDAY GIFTS

30 gift bags

Youth helping youth.  Gathered 30 high school students to build 30 holiday gift bags filled with candy, fuzzy socks, face masks, manicure kits, hair ties, and more.

 

JANUARY 2017 – RISING STRONG

Gave 25 copies of Brene Brown’s book “Rising Strong” to a girls group home.  Founder, Juliana Whitney’s birth mother told her that the book helped her feel “less guilty and ashamed” about giving Juliana up for adoption, so we thought the book might help heal some similar wounds for the girls.
