Homeless Women In Detroit Get Free Shopping Spree
DETROIT (WWJ) It was a shopping spree for free Monday for about 75 women at the Grace Centers for Hope in Detroit.
Birmingham native and fashion stylist to the stars Mary Alice Stephenson donated gifts of jewelry, leggings and glamorous pajama bottoms to the women at the shelter for the homeless.
The donation came through Stephenson’s charity group called GLAM4GOOD.
“Fashion can be so superficial, materialistic and ridiculous, as fun as it is to look at, a lot of it is so surface, so if I can connect fashion and style with virtue in any way and use it to help people I feel that’s really what GLAM4GOOD is about,” Stephenson said.
Stephenson says feeling like you look good can help self esteem.
“For me to be able to come work with them and say ‘Listen, you’re just as beautiful as any star out there and you can be empowered … We get them feeling really great,” she said.
