Since my journal is about doing good in LaLa Land and my current job with Spectrum 1 News SoCal shines a lot on the do-gooders in Hollywood, I thought I’d take the opportunity to introduce you to a few awesome ladies.
Grace Rose Bauer
She’s only 16, but she’s the CEO and head designer of a successful fashion brand, Rosie G Style. She’s also the head of the Grace Rose Foundation. What were you doing at sixteen? I know my resume wasn’t this impressive.
On top of all of her accomplishments, Grace is fighting cystic fibrosis. In fact, her disease is what fuels her passions.
Check out more on her story here:
I’ve know Melissa for years and we’ve connected over a love of fashion, being authentic in Los Angeles, and — a bit morbidly — the death of our sisters.
Melissa is a force and multi-hyphenate like myself. She’s a fashion stylist, TV host and also a yoga teacher. She has volunteered with A Place Called Home the past 3 years, helping out with their annual Cinderella and Prince Charming Project.
This fabulous fashionista has dedicated her styling efforts to the greater good. She calls it, Style with Purpose.
Kristen Brockman Knauf
Kristen and I met co-hosting a show called ‘The Girl Spot.’ We also bonded instantly — over our silly senses of humor, similar career paths, and sisters who had life-threatening illness.
It’s funny how these awful things in our lives can bring us together with the most amazing people.
Kristen has been an avid supporter of the CF Foundation since I’ve known her. Her sister Kelsi had cystic fibrosis, just like Grace Rose. I had the honor of meeting Kelsi the several times that Kristen brought her out to LA for some sister fun.
When Kelsi died in 2016, Kristen was understandably devastated. She found a special list that Kelsi created. Something she called her Un-Bucket List.
Now Kristen is checking items off the list and committed to raising 100,000 for the CF Foundation through her project, The Un-bucket List.
In Hollywood, they say it’s all about who you know.
I’m so thankful to know these amazing, powerful, world-changing women. I hope you are too.
