Michelle Nicole Richar

Michelle created “Believe in Your Beauty” bags for young teenage girls with cancer. Her goal was to make these girls feel beautiful and confident since many of them do not because of their diagnosis. She contacted companies, church members, Girl Scout leaders and community members to collect make-up and beauty products. She wanted to help teenagers because she felt that many Gold Awards target young children or the elderly, so she wanted to help girls that she could relate to and that could use some comfort. The bags were delivered to Hackensack Hospital, specifically to “Tomorrow’s Children Fund”, where the children with cancer go for treatment. Michelle learned through this project that hard work pays off and she truly enjoyed helping the girls.
