Sickle Cell Family Day

There are some events for the Polished Girlz that fill our cup as much as filling the cups of others. Sickle Cell Family Day was definately one of them. To be a part of this educational fun day was so heart warming.There was actually a line to wit for the Polished Girlz!
There were a young group of praise dancers performing which shows that there are so many creative ways for young people to express themselves. You had the youth volunteers from Polished Girlz making the girls feel beautiful on the outside, and the wonderful group of dancers filling our hearts on the inside.
Today Was a good  great day!
You Go Girlz!

The Polished Girlz would also like to send a warm welcome to NU NU! Our newest volunteer! NuNu is 11 yo nd did an amazing job on her first polish event! We cannot wait to see you again NuNu you are a rock star!

Mended Little Hearts

Our newest clients on a bi monthly schedule are the lovely little ones of Mended Little Hearts. Mended Little Hearts,  is a support program for parents of children with congenital heart defects/heart disease, they are dedicated to inspiring hope in those who care for the littlest heart patients of all. Mended Little Hearts offers resources and a caring support network as families find answers and move forward to find healing and hope.
On this visit we had a special treat! The Polished Girlz received a box of Wish wands as a donation from the wonderful Lilly Pearl. Each of our clients was able to choose their very own wish wand and make a wish. Oh How we wished this event would never end!!
Thank you to our special volunteers the Girl Scouts of Wilmington Ohio for bringing extra love to these children with such big hearts!

She Loves Me She Loves Me Lots!

 In celebration of our very first anniversary the Polished Girlz deceided to do something even more special for our clients at the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association! After a wonderful polish we took Valentines Day pictures, and boy did we capture a lot of love.


I am always amazed at the joy that the simple act of kindness brings but today really got the entire families in on the joy as well which made it double fun for us. We hope that you enjoy our Valentines Day Photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.

Happy Birthday Polished Girlz Pink!





Well, we are super excited about whats to come this year for the Polished Girlz!
So far in January we have been able to serve the Children's Medical Center, the Down Syndrome Association, the United Rehabilitation Services, and have added to our list of clients Mended Little Hearts in both Ohio and Illinois.  We re also in the process of starting teams across the US.
We get so excited about the opportunity to serve, and the opportunity to have our volunteers all over serve children that are in the hospital and children with special needs.
One of the coolest things that has happen for us was our Partnership this Holiday Season with Orly Beauty,one of the nations top nail polish manufactures. Not only did we get to tour their facility in California where they treated Alanna like an Angel, but they surprised us by naming a Polish after us, Polished Girlz Pink! How cool is that!
We have been able to try out the Polished Girlz Pink on several of our clients and I must tell you they are in Love! And we love when we give these girls something that they love.







One of the children in the hospital was supposed to get discharged on the day when we were scheduled to polish. They received some news that would keep her in the hospital for a day or so extra and she was not excited about that at all. She had a couple of her friends that were able to visit here during her stay and they were still there when the Polished Girlz came to visit. What started off as a boring time in a small hospital room with a dear friend ended up being a cool spa date between girls, the smiles were endless and we could not be more proud. Instead of sending one volunteer to her room we sent a team of three cool teenagers with all of the glitter and stickers you could possibly think of and the Polished Girlz Spa was official open in her room.
They enjoyed every minute of the pampering and so did we. To hear her mom talk on the phone and say "we, are gonna be home late, the girls are getting Mani's, Yes in the hospital." was one Polished Feeling, and believe me it was our pleasure!
