The Top 5 Glam Loving Good Samaritans!

Need a refresher on who our glam-loving good samaritans are and what they do? Here you go:
Kent: has been bringing food to the homeless for the past 4 years in Ann Arbor, Michigan. AND, he raises money for orphans with HIV/AIDS in Tanzania, Africa. He gives up 3 weeks of his vacation time to spend in Tanzania helping with painting, carpentry, and acts of kindness.

Katherine: is in AmeriCorps VISTA (the domestic Peace Corps) and moved to Alaska to work at a homeless shelter for teens. AND she goes out to help at the food bank and other homeless shelters.

Mary: executive director of N Street Village, which provides a “village of services” for homeless women in Washington, DC. Mary reaches out to companies for donations of goods, money, and services (dental care, massage, lunch, low-income housing, shelter, clothes, etc) so that the women can readily get what they need.

Jared: worked with GLSEN to start the first gay-straight alliance in the Cleveland Public school system. Jared is currently the president of PRIDE in college and in his spare time, he sits on the board of TPAN (test positive awareness network), the largest AIDS activist organization in Chicago. In 2007 he was honorable mention for Chicago’s Windy City Times “30 under 30” award. He also received the Student Activist of the Year Award from the Human Rights Campaign. He’ll be graduating from college in May and will be going to work in New Orleans for Teach for America.

Ashley: who is currently a student at Northwestern medical School and works with victims of rape and sexual assault in Chicago. She has been involved in Rape Crisis/Anti-Violence on campus and worked as an educator at the campus support center. Ashley is also a medical advocate and helps survivors navigate through medical options, and provides non-judgmental support to survivors.

Voting ends on April 15th. The winner of the glam-loving good samaritans contest will receive a $160 gift certificate for a R.E.S.T. intentions massage. If the winner is not within a Bliss Spa city, they’ll receive a $160 gift certificate which can be used at Happy voting!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
