The NWA Beautiful Girls Retreat chooses charities, mission organizations, or individuals to support that are making a difference in people's lives. Girls can work ahead in their local churches or groups and bring items for donation. In previous years we have supported Pure Mission, Saving Grace, Loving Choices, Rapha House that works with evangelism efforts, safe houses for human trafficking victims, and whom we sent “Bracelets of Hope for Cambodia” with. We also rose up thousands of art products for “Color Africa with Love”. This year we partnered with Sole Hope to make shoes out of old jeans for children who are easily infected with jiggers and other diseases. Another organization was Apparent Project--we collected empty and flattened cereal boxes in order for Haitians to make jewelry for work!
We feature mission speakers from around the world and encourage girls to impact those in third world nations through crafts that teach and needed donations beyond the event.
