Rachel Lesiw, Indulge Beauty Studios to Host Charity Event for Infant Orphans
Indulge Beauty Studio will be offering free portraits in return for dry baby foods Sunday, September 22. The event is being put on in support of South Korean infant orphans involved with a struggling international adoption system.
Rachel Lesiw, owner of Indulge Beauty Studios, will be accepting food products such as rice cereals, yogurt puffs, and yogurt meals to provide for infants that project to be without families for extended periods of time due to legislation that has passed in South Korea.
“I was adopted from South Korea when I was a baby, and now my husband and I have adopted two of our three kids from South Korea as well,” said Lesiw. “[These] children used to come home when they were only a few months old. Now, [they] are coming home around the age of two, if not older.”
Adoption Agencies in South Korea are facing unique challenges following this legislative change and are welcoming the assistance of willing donators.
“When traveling families come to Korea, bringing donations such as Toddler snacks and Rice Cereal is GREATLY appreciated and needed.” Lesiwan said in an email sent out to promote the event.
KDND 107.9 The Ends’ Katie, of The Wake Up Call has worked with Lesiw and is in full support of this event. She posted a Facebook status encouraging her listeners to participate.
“This chick [Lesiw] is so cool and talented,” she told Sac Midtown. “I’m glad to be getting the word out.”
Those who wish to participate should contact Lesiw at “email@example.com” to get further information and make appointments.
