The Beautiful Lives Project has met unique individuals from all over the United States who have joined our events. Each person has brought something special to share. Without their courage and enthusiasm, our events would not be as inspiring as they are today. Our treasured participants have opened our eyes to a world of inclusion and acceptance. We hope to continue spreading this message.
Every Beautiful Lives Project event is staffed by amazing volunteers from every walk of life. We are grateful for their time and efforts. We’re always looking for support in various areas, so if you’d like to join us, let us know.
