All of us need time to ourselves to rebuild our spirit and re-fill our cups. But when you’re someone whose day-in-day-out requires giving your all to small humans in need, there’s not many opportunities to do so.
This is often the case for the caregivers at Homes of Hope - a charity who supports our children by providing them with family foster care and therapeutic interventions. Every day they’re providing the emotional support and safe space these kids need, and not leaving much in the cup for themselves.
Thanks to the talented beauticians at Features Inc and their generous customers, (along with their corporate partner Holland Beckett), $115 worth of beauty treatments were paid-forward to Homes of Hope, as a way to look after the carers.
“They do an incredible, incredible job in there with our tamariki, 24/7, so for them to be able to have something nice done for them has been a huge step in helping them feel really valued and appreciated.”
For one caregiver her facial treatment came at exactly the right time. As someone who wouldn’t usually book in for the likes of a beauty treatment, and often forgets to look after herself, having this arranged for her during a tough week was a godsend.
