We've got a BIG announcement!

February 11, 2016

We're proud to announce that BeauteSchool is working in partnership with Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation! We've been constantly on the search for a charitable partner and since we've been volunteering at Wellspring, this was a match made in heaven.

Some background on Wellspring:

For almost 25 years, Wellspring has been providing a wide range of programs and services to meet the emotional, social, spiritual, restorative and practical needs of people living with cancer. Over the years it has grown into a network of community-based centres across Canada, with four centres in the GTA, others in Southern Ontario, and in Calgary. At Wellspring, the focus is on the person, not the disease. It is a sanctuary of understanding where people with cancer, at any stage in their journey, as well as family members and caregivers, are welcome to participate in programming that will help them move forward with renewed strength, confidence and hope.

Wellspring receives no government or other core funding. Programs and operations are made possible only through the generosity of donors. 

Being part of the compassionate and understanding Wellspring community means having the opportunity to talk with others who have been through cancer, to access experts and to share knowledge and experience in a warm, safe, encouraging and non-clinical environment. We work with every member to identify resources that meet their particular needs and where they are on their cancer journey.

Led by experienced professionals, including psychologists, physiotherapists, therapists and dietitians, Wellspring’s more than 40 programs and services, are provided free of charge, and span a comprehensive range of categories, from individual and group support activities to learning coping skills, to expressive arts programs and to practical guidance in areas such as nutrition, financial management and workplace issues. All programming is evidence-based and developed and piloted through the Wellspring Centre of Innovation.

We absolutely love and support Wellspring's approach, so we want to extend ourselves to serving and giving back to the community with them. In the next few months, BeauteSchool will be working closely with the organization to create a fundraiser to support Wellspring’s programs! Stay tuned for the updates coming soon.

And as always, we would love to hear your feedback, and even suggestions on what we should do for our fundraiser!

“These courses are an excellent idea. They should be mandatory for all beauty advisors. The content is very valuable. Mickey Tortorelli has a beautiful personality and I hope to meet/work with her again in the future. If utilized correctly, this course will have a major impact at my workplace!”
