Beautifully Loved is an Austin Community Foundation Fund with the mission to love and care for families dealing with pediatric cancer and other childhood illnesses through experiences that promote wellness, beauty, and fashion. By providing these experiences, they remind the patients and families that they are seen, valued, and overwhelmingly loved.
Monetary donations to Beautifully Loved help contribute to the experiences they provide in their efforts to bring happiness and self-confidence to children patients and their families in an otherwise challenging journey.
The annual Dell Children's Blood and Cancer Center Fashion Show, hosted by Beautifully Loved, features teen patients of the Dell Children's CBCC involved with a support group called Hungry Bunch. For the show, these boys and girls get to have their hair and makeup professionally done, wear their favorite looks from boutiques around Austin, strut the runway, and participate in an exclusive photo shoot. Most importantly, they forget for a moment the cancer or illness they're battling. It's a vital boost of confidence for these teens and a highlight of their year. 100 percent of ticket sales goes directly back to the Hungry Bunch, which provides other fun activities for the kids.
