Portland, Oregon's long standing philanthropic Urbaca Salon hosted nine young ladies aged 7-18 from Sparks of Hope for a fun afternoon of beautification and self-esteem building. Sparks of Hope (sparksofhope.org) is a not-for-profit that strives to "empower children who are survivors of abuse to thrive by providing special services to encourage hope, and by creating opportunities that will develop trust and healing so they can achieve lifelong success."
Charlie Le Mindu, a favorite artist of many celebrities including Lady Gaga, designs "haute coiffure fashion" using Hairdreams hair creations to create high fashion designs, wigs and sculptures. His work is currently on display in the exhibit “Le Bord des Mondes” (The Edge of Worlds) at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris’ contemporary art museum, and it will run from February 18-May 17, 2015.
Asked to describe himself as a young person, Tom Porter, CEO and Founder of Malibu Wellnessin Malibu, CA, says “I was the kid that was always looking under the rock to find something very special.” His curiosity, openness to opportunity and emphasis on health and wellness have flowed together throughout his life, with water being an essential connecting element of the story.
