TheInterGen.Touch: Fusing The Gender Gap

BE attended the 4th annual Glammy Awards on May 8, 2008. What is a Glammy Award??? It’s a special recognition given by GlamourGals to young women who make a difference in the lives of mature women living in senior living facilities. Award categories are: Innovator Glammy, Smile Maker Glammy, Motivator Glammy, Role Model Glammy, Go Getter Glammy and Trail Blazer Glammy.


GlamourGals, GG a non-profit organization founded by Rachel Doyle, was born in memory of Rachel’s grandmother who passed away in a nursing home. GlamourGals, coined “GG” brings teens and the elderly together to create smiles that span generations! The young women of GG, organize chapters, make appointments to visit the senior facilities and provide complimentary facials and make-overs. GG is the only national program that focuses on creating teen leaders through service with the seniors in life care communities and has more than 50 chapters throughout seven states.

The results of GG? The fusion of Gender Gaps...the sharing of a "healing" and comforting touch...the creation of intimacy through conversation and laughter...the sharing of legacy through wisdom...the sustainable creation of leadership and self-confidence in young women.

Is your company a cosmetic beauty manufacturer? If yes, please consider sponsoring GG with cosmetic products to be used during the makeovers, or contribute financially to support the chapters. Contact Rachel Doyle, President and Founder: 


Everyone deserves to feel special no matter what their age! While attending the awards program BE questioned . . . how can the beauty industry support and create product opportunities for these two widely-gapped generations? . . . what are the specific personal care products needed for this senior-seasoned generation, and how do we make them accessible and affordable? . . . is it time to jump on the bandwagon of opportunity and provide senior-spa services to the life care communities? . . . see, . . . and what about the younger generation, is there a new way to introduce cosmetics to this blooming generation with social philanthropy on their minds?
