Are you at home looking for something to do? We are looking for PenPals! Our clients would LOVE LOVE LOVE to receive pictures, letters, or drawings from you and your kids, your social and IRL networks, your church, your neighborhoods, and your BFF crew! We dare you to create a challenge among them!!! As we stay indoors and out of harm’s way, help us let them know that they matter and that they are not alone.

Brenda's Beauty Angels is looking for "pen pals" for their clients: seniors, seriously-ill adults and children, and their caregivers. Send cards and letters to Brenda's Angels at 7915 S. Emerson Ave B254, Indianapolis, IN 46237.

**Please know we have researched and prepared an isolated area for deliveries where items will be disinfected and held for 72hrs prior to delivering to residents. We would never want to put our residents at risk for exposure to COVID 19.**

Don't worry, the United States Postal Service gives this kind of project its blessing. In its update on its COVID-19 response on its website, the service notes the CDC, the World Health Organization, and the Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail."

Specifically, according to the World Health Organization, "the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, traveled, and been exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low."

Even celebrities like "Saturday Night Live's" Heidi Gardner are getting into the act. "Please join me and send a card to a nursing home," the actress wrote on Instagram. "Senior citizens need our love more than ever right now."

Mission Statement

Brenda’s Beauty Angels provides beauty services to the elderly, the seriously-ill, and their caregivers in hopes of enhancing the quality of life and to deliver loving kindness, support, and compassion to those they serve.

Description

Brenda’s Beauty Angels was founded in memory of Brenda Gayle Barnett, whose life was cut short at the young age of 64 by COPD. Brenda became home-bound as her disease progressed which kept her from enjoying her once regular beauty regimes and manicures. In an effort to lift her spirits, her family arranged for in-home manicures and beauty treatments. The impact was a profound, momentary escape from her disease. It also provided an opportunity for precious time together and much needed girl-talk. Brenda’s family founded Brenda’s Beauty Angels to offer this same experience of dignity, hope, and respite to other patients, as well as their caregivers.
