On the Wednesday the 11th of July the BLO/OUT team of BLO/litas visited the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for a day of BLO/OUTs, make up, hair accessories and most of all FUN!
We got to CHOP at around 1pm and were shown where we will be setup. We setup all of our tools, products, accessories and music awaiting our first "client". Our first "client" was a cute little girl with great long hair and an awesome smile! We styled her hair giving her some adorable curls, applied a bit of makeup, nail polish and a flower hair band. She loved every minute of it and was talking and laughing with the BLO/litas the whole time. She posed for a million pictures and even took some of us.
Although not all of our "clients" had allowed us to photograph them, the ones that did provide a great idea of the fun we had!
We had a "client" that has NEVER, yes NEVER cut her hair! She had the longest most beautiful hair we've seen, very Rapunzel like!
One of our shyest "clients" was also one of the cutest! She had a beautiful smile and our BLO/litas accentuated it a bit with some lip gloss and a great bow!
The entire experience was probably one of the most touching I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of! Every time I looked around one of the BLO/litas was laughing, playing with the "clients" or concentrating on the BLO/OUT because these "clients" were VIPs!
After a rush of "clients" things finally began to calm down and we began to pack up. The CHOP team told us that all of the girls had a great time and loved the BLO/OUTs.
We could not have been happier to have provided a day of smiles and beauty to a bunch of young ladies that unfortunately had to spend some of their summer in the hospital. It really was so rewarding and fun and we can't wait to do it again!
I want to thank our team of BLO/litas for volunteering their time and efforts for such a great cause! I would like to thank the CHOP coordinators for allowing us the opportunity to do what we did and being such good sports! I would like to thank my beautiful girlfriend for coming along and being a tremendous help, I would have been lost without her help dealing with young ladies :-)
THANK YOU Meghan, Shannon, Regina, Olivia, Natalie, Tina, Jen, Patrick and Angelica!!!
