Rachel Doyle
Sure, it's what's on the inside that matters. But Rachel Doyle has never seen one of her "gals" turn down some berry lipstick or cucumber facial. Doyle is the founder of GlamourGals, an organization that gives complimentary makeovers and facials to seniors.

Doyle stared GlamourGals at the age of 17 after her grandmother passed away in a nursing home. Seven years later, she has grown the organization to 50 chapters in 8 states. Aiming to bridge the gap between teens and the elderly, about 1,000 GlamourGals volunteers spend time with elderly women at nursing homes nationwide.

"Beauty transcends generations," Doyle says. She believes eye-shadow and blush are just the catalysts for conversation that can lead to a closer connection. With that goal, Doyle works to make the inside and outside matter -- one makeover at a time.

What a lovely young woman. Very inspiring.
It's amazing how much GlamourGals has grown. Keep up to good work Rache!!!
We tend to forget that old people needs to look & feel good too. It is a great idea to use cosmetics to connect with them. Rachael you are wonderful.
