“This is why I started. This is Toya...1st person to get eyelashes from me...it was Toya who complimented me for months and made me realize makeup and hair was important to the homeless. She kissed me on my cheek almost 1 year ago when she got housing and said goodbye...thanked me for my kindness. I miss her! Last I heard she's doing well. Toya was beaten with sticks, burned out of her tent and suffered other abuse...she is safe now Love u Toya!”
