At Shine, our mission is to bring joy and confidence to women's lives through pampering. All year round, we connect with safe houses, women's centers, and households throughout Metro Atlanta, gifting women with a day filled with beauty, self-care and empowerment.
Elevating Lives, One Smile at a Time
Welcome to Shine, where we believe in the transformative power of love and beauty. Each year, we come together with one simple goal: to light up the faces of these courageous women on Christmas Day, infusing their hearts with warmth and joy through pampering and care. Survivors of domestic violence often carry the heavy burden of physical, emotional, and psychological trauma. Shine provides a break from their daily challenges, creating a space for them to feel beautiful and nurture their self-assurance.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Scott Miller and Lindiwe Famodou grew up together in Detroit, MI. Their bond goes back to Winterhalter Middle School where Lindiwe's mother was Scott’s Science and Dance Teacher.
Reconnecting years later in Atlanta, Ga, Scott and Lindiwe both deciding not to return home for the holidays, sought out to give back to the community on Christmas Day. They gathered a few friends together to help out and in 2008 the 1st Christmas pamper day was established.
