Two years ago when Beauty Buzz 411 launched, I knew that I wanted to celebrate my anniversary each year by giving back to charity. BB411 has blessed me with the opportunity to work with amazing companies and I have met incredible people along the way. I believe that one person can make a difference and no amount of giving is too small.
Last year on BB411 Anniversary I cut my hair and donated 11.5″ to Locks of Love, the proceeds raised went to the Make a Wish Foundation. With such a great turn out, the hype for this years event has been building for months. We hope to beat our success from last year and give back by bringing awareness to an amazing organization for a cause that has affected so many people.
When scouting out what charity to support for this years gala, I kept coming across Fuck Cancer. There was just something that kept drawing me to the organization and it felt very dear to my heart. From the moment I got in contact with the team they have opened their hearts and supported me in so many ways. I love the community they have and their focus on education and early detection. As the weeks went on I soon realized that Fuck Cancer was not just a charity, it was a family. Fuck Cancer educates Gen Y on early detection, prevention and the communication of cancer.
With the help of an incredible team I wanted to create a photo shoot that would show my support and capture the raw beauty of this amazing charity. I wanted to take a stand and not only be a voice that supported the cause, but be part of the change I want to see in this world. I had the absolute pleasure to be shot by Photographer Martin Szabo, Stylist Crystal Carson, Make Up Artist Allison Giroday and Hair Stylist Simon James.
After doing our shoot I went through a health scare with the C word and lost a friend to Cancer. This event soon became closer to my heart. Stay tuned for the in-depth story
