Beautiful Creations by Chanel Inc has six major events throughout the year such as Tools for School, Change for Prosperity, Rags to Riches, C.O.A.T.S (Covering Others Always Through Service), Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaways, and A Beautiful Christmas. Even though these are the main events hosted by Beautiful Creations by Chanel Inc., we participate in several other community events.
Rags to Riches enables two students to indulge in the experience of preparing for prom and to attend the event with confidence. High school seniors are invited to submit an essay that expresses their need and desire to receive the scholarship. Based on essay responses, a male and a female student are selected to receive the Rags to Riches experience. Both students receive formal attire, shoes, hair care services, a prom ticket, professional pictures, and dinner. The young lady also receives a makeover that includes a manicure, pedicure, and make-up service.
The Beautiful Creations by Chanel Scholarship seeks to help a student from Valdosta High School further their education. Each year, seniors with a 2.5 or higher GPA are asked to support a 500-word essay that explains their desire to pursue a postsecondary credential and expresses their need for financial support? Essays are judged based on the author’s originality and written communication skills. The selected student will receive a check for $500 the summer before their freshman year of college that they are encouraged to use for college expenses such as technology, school supplies, books, and other college related living expenses.
Tools For School is Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc.’s signature event. In Valdosta, we partner with local businesses and community volunteers to provide school necessities to children in Orla West, Hudson Dockett, Park Chase, Brittney Woods, and Azalea Woods. We meet children and families where they are by walking around the neighborhoods to distribute the tools kids need to thrive in the upcoming school year. Our yearly goal is to pass out 500 book bags with paper, pocket folders, notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, glue, and erasers.
Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc. hosts a similar Tools for School event in Quitman, specifically Brooks County. Like in Valdosta, we partner with local businesses and community volunteers to provide school necessities to children. Our yearly goal is to distribute 100 bookbags with paper, pocket folders, notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, glue, and erasers.
August to May:
The Change for Prosperity Mentoring Program workshops to students in grades 9 - 12. Hosted by Beautiful Creations by Chanel Inc., and local entrepreneurs, the workshops assist students in building life skills and self-esteem, while also providing educational support. Skills based workshops teach lessons about cooking, acting, finance (with a focus on savings and checking accounts), proper etiquette, resume building, interviewing skills, and even learning how to be a disc jockey! To build social skills and teach students how to establish and maintain healthy relationships, students engage in networking opportunities and are connected to mentors who provide support and advice. The Change for Prosperity Mentoring Program is directly connected to the Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc. mission of, “Enhancing the quality of education and self-esteem of our youth while enriching their lives to re-define them as the BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS they are!
Through the C.O.A.T.S (Covering Others Always Through Service) program, Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc. provides warm outwear to children during the cold winter months. Five large donation boxes are placed at local businesses and the community is encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats, jackets, or outerwear. The items are then donated to schools or local shelters that house women and children.
Every November, Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc. hosts a Thanksgiving Drive to support families who may not be able to purchase a home cooked meal. With donations from sponsors and the community, 5 families are given a turkey, side items, and dessert to create a complete meal.
Through A Beautiful Christmas, Beautiful Creations by Chanel, Inc., our proud sponsors, and volunteers will create a Christmas themed immersive experience at a local community center. For this event we will decorate the community center in Christmas decor, have a cookie decorating station, hot chocolate bar, pictures with Santa, gifts for each child under the Christmas tree, and raffles to receive larger prizes.
