Rachel’s Beauty With A Purpose reaches foster care children across America, by sorting donations and packing backpacks for Comfort Cases, a national nonprofit that provides necessities to children entering the foster system. Her most recent fundraiser collected enough items to provide for over 500 foster kids. While organizing a national drive for Comfort Cases to culminate on National Foster Kid Day, she continues to help those with food insecurities by making and distributing lunches to people in need. She also raised over $3,000 to feed over 3,000 children. To broaden her reach, she created an IGTV show, “RACH for the Stars” showing teens ways they can help their communities and find their volunteer passion.
