Clockwise from Top: Joan COO of Sleek Hair, YouTube Beauty Sensation Kim Thai, and Maxine CEO of Vanity Girl Hollywood. 2) It’s us again, not even 12 hours later at the MSABC walk 3) Kim and her motivational pillow talk at Sleekhair HQ, and the lady of the hour – birthday girl Kim Thai at her custom floral backdrop.
When I learned of Kim’s interest in breast cancer awareness, I was honored to collaborate with my American Cancer Society family – and quickly learned that the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer OC walk would be held the very next day at the world-famous Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
Sleekhair and Kim generously donated 10% of the proceeds from the Shopping Party (held just the night before) to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer OC Walk. I worked with Maya and the MSABC OC team to create yet another powerful collaboration for this cause. We even quickly formed a small team to raise additional funds.
Huge thanks to MSABC OC 2016 for selecting Kim to be the Millennial speaker at the walk, and for having Joan and I share our #non-profit to #girlboss stories as well. Vanity Girl Hollywood donated ANOTHER Pink Broadway vanity to a lucky walker to raise funds and awareness. Kim was even interviewed on KCBS by the dynamic emcee Michele Giles!
That whole AMAZING weekend spoke to the power of collaborations sparked by the interest of one young woman’s interest in using her voice to make a difference.
