A national magazine insisted a Phoenix woman take a break from her tireless work to stop bullying, so they could spoil her.
Carrie Severson is the co-founder and CEO of Severson Sisters, a bullying-solutions and self-compassion outreach organization for girls.
Severson says her organization offers creative and supportive services that work to enhance self-esteem, strengthen sisterhoods, and provide bullying-solution methods to all girls enrolled. As of July 2012, the non-profit has worked with 800 girls in Phoenix ages 7 - 17.
Each year, Sally Hansen and "Glamour Magazine" recognize four women across the country who are working to make big changes in their community for their Best of You award. Severson was one of those four.
She was flown to New York for a spa day and a photo shoot for the September issue of the magazine.
Severson said she's grateful for the national recognition, especially since her non-profit is not yet old enough to receive financial support from foundations or government grants, and hopes this attention will bring forward more partnership opportunities, as well as more girls to help.
To celebrate the Best of You award and share the experience with the community, Severson Sisters is hosting a night of style, pampering and fashion called Severson Sisters Super Girl Fashion Show.
It'll be on September 28 at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center from 7pm to 10pm. The cost is $50.
