PAMPER FOR A PURPOSE ATLANTA



Embodying the concept of beauty from the inside out, O - Aesthetics Med Spa is launching "Pamper for a Purpose". This philanthropic beauty campaign is designed to benefit the orphans in Zimbabwe through the assistance of Morning Star Camp Inc.

As seen in Lucky Magazine, Daily Candy, the Atlanta Journal Constitution and loved by the likes of Vivica Fox, Chilli (TLC) and more, O -Aesthetics Medical Spa has quickly become one of the most coveted spas in Atlanta. With its immense success, the spa's principals have joined together with Morning Star Camp to create a way to give back. In the spirit of giving O-Aesthetics pledges to donate twenty-five dollars from every Hyperbaric Oxygen Infusion Facial, and Botox Cosmetic Treatment booked at O Aesthetics to an organization committed to helping the orphans of Zimbabwe children obtain life's basic necessities.Donations will be hand delivered directly to the Morning Star Camp that houses many of those in need.
