Every year I adopt a family or child over the holidays. I'm focusing on giving back in my local neighborhood again this year and would love for you to join me! I will be donating unwrapped gifts to the Crisis Nursery's Holiday Helper Program from now until December 17th. (More details below) Make a donation and you will receive $10 off any of my single services or packages as an added bonus!   *Scheduling a service is not required in order to make a donation!
