    American Cancer Society's Making Strides Million Dollar Girl~ Stacy Matseas

    in Women

    Stacy Matseas joins Mary E., to celebrate the "Strides" made against breast cancer through the work of the American Cancer Society, "Making Strides" events. Her commitment is evident in her 10 year history of raising over a MILLION dollars for a cure. 


    Stacy became involved in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk as a team captain, and, fueled by the desire to strike down the feelings of helplessness and her belief in the work and mission of the Society, Stacy became one of the most successful fundraisers in history, having raised more than $1 million for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. “The first year, I raised $5,000,” Stacy said. “From there, I just remained persistent and passionate and formed a network of volunteers, supporters and teammates, and educated them about what Making Strides is about.”


    Stacy’s work with the American Cancer Society isn’t limited to her involvement with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.


    In addition to Stacy's story, we will focus on "Chicago is gearing up for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, October 25 – Thousands of local breast cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, businesses and community members will unite at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Chicago on Saturday, October 25 at Soldier Field (Stadium Green, 1410 Museum Campus Drive)."

    “Your Best Friend!” (YBF)


    Stacey Schieffelin, Ford model and makeup guru, successful entrepreneur and true believer in empowering women to live the life they dream, is as approachable as the girl next door. Stacey shares her knowledge about how to look and feel your beYOUtiful best every day. For Stacey, putting your best and fabYOUlous face forward is a sign of self-respect, not vanity. She believes every woman deserves to have her own customized and personalized blueprint that maps out her unique path to bold beYOUty and self-confidence. Stacey founded Models Prefer 18 years ago; an international cosmetics company that has been sold on HSN in the U.S., QVC in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. The MP brand remained the #1 color cosmetics line on QVC in the UK for more than eight years. 


    Beauty is a natural extension of Stacey’s fun, engaged relationship with her customers (girlfriends); best demonstrated through her Pajama’ Party at Sea Cruises. “I started out talking to women one-on-one about what makes them beYOUtiful; first on HSN and QVC, and then in our unique Pajama’ Parties at Sea, traveling the world on a cruise ship devoted to fun, beauty and empowerment. Women embraced the ideas, products and friendships we were sharing. The phrase “best friend” was voiced over and over as they described their feelings about the products and being part of our community. Without question, the perfect name for our new brand “your best friend” (ybf) came from our girlfriends!” 



    Stacey is on the board of directors of Fashion Group International, Count Me In and is an active member of Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD), Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Girls, Inc., American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

    Merry Christmas From the American White History Month Family

    in Family

    Once upon a time, there was a man who worked very hard just to keep food on the table for his family. This particular year a few days before Christmas, he punished his little five-year-old daughter after learning that she had used up the family's only roll of expensive gold wrapping paper.  As money was tight, he became even more upset when on Christmas Eve he saw that the child had used all of the expensive gold paper to decorate one shoebox she had put under the Christmas tree. He also was concerned about where she had gotten money to buy what was in the shoebox.


    Nevertheless, the next morning the little girl, filled with excitement, brought the gift box to her father and said, "This is for you, Daddy!"  As he opened the box, the father was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, now regretting how he had punished her.  But when he opened the shoebox, he found it was empty and again his anger flared. "Don't you know, young lady," he said harshly, "when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside the package!"  The little girl looked up at him with sad tears rolling from her eyes and whispered: "Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was all full."  The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around his precious little girl. He begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.


    In a very real sense, each of us has been given an invisible golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.


    On this wonderful Christmas Day in 2014, let us remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas.  Christ.  Family.  Friends.  May you and yours have the best Christmas ever from your friends and family at American White Hostory Month and Prepare To Take America Back!
