Giving Back Comes In Many Forms

February 28th, 2013

hearts3 love story 40x20

Giving back comes in many forms! February remains the month associated with love. Our CEO Ilana Goldstone paid a visit to her hairdresser as usual, however this time she felt like she needed a change and so she requested to have 5 inches cut off.  Her hairdresser found that to be quite drastic! But then Ilana had an even better idea and decided to donate 12 inches to a non-profit organization called LOCKS OF LOVE who use the hair to make wigs for children with cancer!   So you may do a double take, next time you see her!

IG_Locks_Of_Love

WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

The possibilities of how you can help people in need are virtually endless because how you spend your resources or time giving back is completely up to you. What other non-conventional ways have you giving back to help someone?

Donating A Heart on Valentine’s Day

February 9th, 2012

Backdrop Hearts 1

This Valentine’s Day give from your heart to help save a life.   Backdrops Beautiful is sponsoring a heart transplant for a patient in Ethiopia.  As we move forward on this journey, we will share our path with everyone, bringing you face-to-face with the patient through our very own experience.

HOW WE GOT INVOLVED:

Shaun Goldstone is the reason why Backdrops Beautiful is sponsoring a patient in need of a heart.  If you’re wondering if he’s related to our owner Ilana Goldstone, you are correct.  Shaun is one of Ilana’s two sons; Shaun is the youngest, Jonathan the oldest.   Shaun graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with high honors in June of 2010.  He graduated with a Bachelors of Science in molecular and cellular biology and has taken a year off to make a difference in Ethiopia before going to medical school.  He joined JDC’s world-acclaimed medical director, Dr. Rick Hodes in his home town of Addis Ababa as his assistant were he provides medical care to patients of all religions and ethnicities, from all over Ethiopia.

Shaun Goldstone

Dr. Rick Hodes is an American doctor who has dedicated over 28 years of his life serving the underprivileged in Ethiopia. Dr. Rick Hodes mainly treats spine, cardiac, and cancer patients.  At the moment, there is no known explanation of why Ethiopia hosts an abundance of patients with tuberculosis of the spine.  As far as cardiac issues, they’ve encountered almost everything including a patient with Ebstein’s Anomaly which is an extremely rare condition.  From the Mother Teresa Clinic in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Dr. Hodes sends his patients to either India for cardiac surgery or to Ghana for spinal surgery.

Dr. Rick Hodes, Shaun Goldstone and 13 Spine Patients

WHY WE GOT INVOLVED:

Dr. Rick Hodes ensures that 100% of all donations are for the patients’ well being. He is an exemplary humanitarian as he himself has donated significantly to the project including adopting 5 children.  Ilana Goldstone was moved when she visited her son in Ethiopia and saw first hand some of the things her son Shaun does for Dr. Rick Hodes and the JDC.  Upon her return she decided that Backdrops Beautiful would become involved, and started with our first heart.

In India, heart surgery is about 10% of the price in the United States. This Valentine’s Day instead of buying a gift, consider making a donation on behalf of your loved one and help a patient get closer to having a healthy heart.
