Kirsten presents Queen & Hero for a Day at Ronald McDonald House Pasadena

Saturday, June 16th, I led four volunteers through a Queen & Hero for a Day visit at the Pasadena location of RMH. 

The event went absolutely AMAZING!! Everybody had a blast! The girls loved having their makeup and nails done and then in return, loved doing our makeup and nails! The boys loved the superhero theme and loved picking out their capes and coloring their own bags and masks. Even the parents loved coloring the bags!

The temporary tattoos were a HUGE hit!! All the kids loved getting their own tattoos and doing other peoples tattoos as well. The tattoos also helped them with counting too. Whenever we did the tattoos, we would all count to 10 in Spanish and then take off the back and reveal the tattoo and the kids LOVED it!! They thought it was so funny!

Then we brought out the finger shooters and the event became an outdoor party! We had a whole finger shooter war and we were pushing the kids on bikes and playing basketball! The music also really helped set the mood. People were dancing and getting their groove on!  

All in all, the event was a huge hit, everybody had the best time and are all wondering when we can do another one. 

My First Day on the Town...

My First Day on the Town...

On Saturday we went out on our first run to ask for donations! I was very nervous, so we decided that we would go to Macy's and ask for makeup. And it was great! Here's what happened:

We got to Macy's and decided that we would go to one of the makeup sections (Lancome) to see what they do with makeup that does not sell. We talked to one of the workers and she said that she would call the manager down because she (the worker) did not know. The manager came down and she was so sweet! She said that what they do is they send it back to the factory. Then we started telling her about For A Day. She was so touched, she started to get teary eyed! She asked us if Macy's could possibly partner with us! We're now in discussions about the possibilities for future partnerships. It was an absolute DREAM to get that kind of response on our first time going out!!!  

Help me reach my goal of $200 by donating here!
