About SIMPLY FROM THE HEART FOUNDATION

Location:

13 East 1st Street, Unit H, Hinsdale, IL 60521, US

Mission Statement

Simply From the Heart is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that brings patients complimentary bedside beauty services to raise self-esteem and encourage well-being. Our mission is to enrich the lives, promote healing and recovery, and empower patients through beauty and pampering services.

Description

What we do: We deploy what is known as the "Glam Squad" to pamper individuals suffering from a terminal illness or life-threatening disease and undergoing long hospital stays and treatment. The services we provide are free of charge to patients and hospitals and include hairstyling, makeup applications, manicures, pedicures, mini-facials, and massage. As part of our services, we also gift every patient with their own "Glam Box" filled with over 25 beauty products from amazing brands such as Revitalash, eco tools, Sephora, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit, Colour Pop, etc.- all for them to keep!

How many patients do we pamper? We currently pamper over 1,000 patients a year- having touched the lives of over 5,000 patients since our inception in 2014.

Our guiding principle:
We believe bringing the small things in the life one can take for granted-manicures, makeovers, hand massages, simple conversation-to those fighting cancer or chronic illness helps empower patients to look and feel like the beautiful warriors they are. When you have a serious illness, everything about your life changes. In addition to the treatments, medical interventions, and day-to-day pain of being sick, patients often become depressed, lonely, and isolated. We help to dispel those hardships.
