Redefining

The Standard of Beauty

We aim to change the conversation of society to ultimately redefine the “Standard of Beauty” by empowering young burn survivors and other youth with permanent scarring to live full lives through increased self-esteem, community connections and achievement of life goals.

Increased Self –Esteem:

(A) PS Packages – This is Perfectly Scarred, Inc’s number one outreach effort. Packages are sent to burn survivors who are admitted to hospitals for burn treatment. Includes (but not limited to) wristbands/bracelets, Declaration Shirts and more.

(B) One-to-One Encounters- visits to in-patient burn survivors by a Perfectly Scarred, Inc Representative.

(C) Open Groups:  engagement of those with common concerns (provided to Perfectly Scarred, Inc participants/recipients and/or their loved ones) in small, open support-group type gatherings focused on self-esteem, resiliency and support.

(D) Perfected Stories- One of Perfectly Scarred, Inc’s signature projects where participants and/or their loved ones tell their stories to essentially help someone else.

(E) Perfect Products- clothing, accessories, books and more purposed to encourage and empower.

Community Connections:

(A) Community Outings – events for survivors and their loved ones to engage in fun activities in physically and emotionally safe environments.

(B) Burn Camp- Support provided to youth to attend camp.

(C) Connections and Collaborations- partnering with various service providers to encourage survivor participation thus eliminating isolation.

Achievement of Life Goals:

(A) Scholarships- Support provided specifically to high school graduates who are burn survivors who strive to continue toward the achievement of their goals in spite of their burns.
