Nonprofit Spotlight: Glamorous Moms

Written by karly@sharedetroit.org    on March 4, 2022    in
With the idea in mind that “all Moms are glamorous,” Shannon Lazovski founded Glamorous Moms as a fashion and beauty blog nearly 17 years ago.  Quickly, this platform became an influential source and full business for Shannon as she provided readers with inspiration on fashion, health and beauty advice. The goal in mind was to provide support to help Moms keep their self-worth and self-confidence strong. 

The “women supporting women” brand instantly gained a large network of community supporters. As Glamorous Moms grew, Shannon found this to be a resource that both inspired women and offered them the opportunity to support several Michigan-based nonprofit organizations as well.  The missions of the nonprofit organizations that Glamorous Moms became involved help those who have suffered from addiction, homelessness, human trafficking, domestic violence, abuse, and illness.

After spending time witnessing the need for support from the local nonprofits, Shannon established the Glamorous Moms Foundation in 2019.   Powered by their Foundation Board which is made up of educators, medical professionals, PR professionals, and philanthropists, the organization proudly focuses on helping women and children and on making a difference! 

As with most nonprofits, Glamorous Moms addressed the growing need for their services over the past couple of years during COVID.  One of their greatest accomplishments in 2021 was that they were able to continue making New Mom baskets for expectant mothers in need.  Despite the pandemic, they distributed hundreds of baskets and provided hope and necessities to new mothers. Shannon stated she personally loves that mission and will continue to strive to keep it alive. She wants to make sure expectant mothers who may be afraid, scared or worried about entering motherhood because of their personal situation know they are not forgotten. Through Glamorous Moms, Shannon and her team want to give these women a brighter day (or at least a moment), showing them that there is hope and people who care in our community.

On May 21, 2022, The Glamorous Moms Foundation will hold their annual fundraiser, The Glamorous Luncheon, at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. Since this organization focuses on women supporting women, the afternoon will feature Michigan vendors from local small businesses owned and operated by women for a fun shopping experience.  Additionally, there will be a fashion show featuring designs from local female designers and an award ceremony recognizing the top volunteer of the year and the 2021-2022 Team Impact teen volunteers.  Guests will enjoy a plated lunch, dessert, Glamosas and have the chance to bid in the silent auction. Join them! 

Glamorous Moms Foundation is a resource for 100 volunteers who give their time to serve the organization’s mission.  Learn more about ways you can get involved with their efforts on their SHARE Detroit page
