Project Glimmer Treats Teens in Foster Care to “Day of Empowerment”

The Foundling’s foster youth celebrated their graduations by spending the day in Manhattan receiving expert makeovers and having their own private photo shoot with fashion models from GAP, Calvin Klein and other leading brands!


But Project Glimmer afforded our girls so much more, including generous gifts and an opportunity to hear and learn from in the fashion industry women, and talking about education and careers – all in an effort to encourage and empower young women.


Thank you Ticket to Dream Foundation / Mattress Firm and Project Glimmer!
