     Believe In Your Beauty

 My name is Michelle Richar. For my Girl Scout Gold Award, I am
creating “Believe in Your Beauty” bags for young teenage girls with
 cancer. My goal is to make these girls feel beautiful and confident.
To reach this goal, I need your help! Please consider donating some
   unused beauty items to my project. Some suggested items are:

     - make up items such as blushes, eye shadows, lip glosses
                              -soaps
                   -shampoos and conditioners
                             -lotions
                           -fragrances
                          -body washes
