3 Time Cancer Survivor, CEO of a vegan shampoo line, Founder/Chairwoman of a Non Profit for homeless children, meet Miriam Marsh Sifuentes

From time to time we meet persons with stories of struggle, stories of overcoming obstacles in life most of us would never wish upon another human. I wanted to take this moment to speak of Miriam Marsh Sifuentes, a 3 time cancer survivor, mother of two, grandmother of two, a career woman working in the supply chain industry, a compliance officer at Toyota Headquarters located in Frisco, Texas, Founder/Chairwoman for the Brighter Generation Foundation, a 501c(3) non profit that serves homeless children and foster youth in the Dallas, Texas area. Miriam also developed and launched a 100% vegan shampoo line, BellaGeneration Hair System that has a solution for every hair texture and is in talks to negotiate private label opportunities with her original formula. Next I invite you to read her personal story written by her.

 

“Most people do not know the story behind the how and why BellaGenerationHair System was created. When I was little I struggled with my hair texture because my Mexican mother had no clue what to do with my kinky hair. In my 30s I began my battles with cancer and so far I have had multiple surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy.

I will never forget the day I called my friend Carla Harrell crying because my hair was coming out in clumps. I was at a loss and had no idea how to cope with what I was going through, much less fix it. She told me to call Angelia Broughton who is a stylist and friend of hers. Angelia is a blessing in that she came up with creative options to cover up my hair loss until we could get my hair back to health.

Then one day while shopping for shampoo, it hit me…most products on the market are laced with chemicals that were making my hair loss situation even worse. That inspired me to create an organic shampoo with a blend of natural oils, cleansers, and essential oils.

Every ingredient, I painstakingly researched and hand picked to combat hair issues like dryness, dandruff, certain types of hair loss, etc. and to promote health and healing. The best part is it’s a moisturizing shampoo so you don’t condition afterwards and you can virtually get rid of many other hair products on your shelf. It’s phenomenal for people that wear their hair natural/curly and just as fantastic if you straighten your hair. The more you use it, the more the health of your hair and scalp improves.

In my quest to seek out healthy options for hair and skin, I read that the skin is one of the largest organs of the body. Therefore, you should not put anything on your hair or skin that you aren’t willing to eat. And while not everyone is suffering from serious illnesses, reducing the amount of toxins that enter our bodies is becoming more and more important to people every day.”

We at BellaGeneration Hair System are truly committed to the future of our youth and 10% of our company’s net earnings will be donated to The Brighter Generation Foundation, a 501c(3) Non Profit Foundation to which we founded that promises to deliver supplies, tools, resources, and access to education to homeless/foster youth.  For investor relations, live speaking appearances and media interviews please contact rikki@bellagenerationhairsystem.com.

Hidden From View

We imagine a world where we would like to believe that all children have a home. The local government is tasked with and obtains funding to provide for children that find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. That’s what orphanages and the foster care systems are for…to care for children that have no parents. And these systems must be working great because after all, when was the last time you saw a homeless child? That National Conference of State Legislatures estimates that “…on a given night there are approximately 1.3 homeless youth living unsupervised on the streets” (http://www.ncsl.org/research/human-services/homeless-and-runaway-youth.aspx). So either they are mistaken or we are grossly out of touch with what is really happening to our youth in America.

Because we don’t see homeless youth on the streets, we assume that either (a) there is no such thing as youth homelessness or (b) that the social systems we have in place to address and prevent youth homelessness must be working, but nothing is further from the truth. You won’t see homeless youth on the streets begging for money or walking about in broad daylight. Homeless youth become experts at hiding themselves because they are at high risk for assault, illness, and suicide and as many as 5,000 unaccompanied youth die each year.

Brighter Generation Foundation understands all too well the difficult situation in which homeless youth find themselves. Through the support of our donors and sponsors we are able to provide for the basic human needs of hundreds of homeless youth in the Dallas Independent School District. We supply items such as food, water, clothing, school supplies, and access to resources that can help them to improve their circumstances.

Brighter Generation Foundation provides mass donations to homeless students at North Dallas High School

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
May 2, 2018
Miriam Marsh Sifuentes
214-477-4813

The Brighter Generation Foundation, a (501(c)3 non profit organization led by Chairwoman Miriam Marsh Sifuentes recently provided a major diesel truck load of donations to help those in need in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Items such as clothing, bottle water, non perishable food and more were given to much needed homeless families from the North Dallas High School program that works to create solutions for their 20% make up of the less fortunate that attend their school.

North Dallas High School was recently in the news for having the largest percentage of homeless youth, a staggering 20% of the total student body population is without a home to call their own. When the Brighter Generation Foundation heard and connected with North Dallas High School and their ongoing outreach to service their homeless children it was a simple decision to get them the much needed help. Upon receiving and distributing all the donated items, North Dallas High School Counselor, Barbara Scott-Ferguson had this to say, “The gratitude for receiving theses items for our students is just so overwhelming…in order for students to be successful they have to access to the basic needs of life … these donations will certainly help them in that endeavor!!!”.

The Brighter Generation Foundation could not have done this alone, the very generous help by Gil’s Trucking in West Dallas went way out of their way to store and deliver the donated goods to North Dallas High School and waiving all fees in doing so. We are very grateful to the entire family at Gil’s Trucking for offering to be there for us and the youth during their time of need.  Gilbert of Gil’s Trucking speaks from his heart when donating his time, services to those less fortunate, “I walk In the foot steps of the good Lord and my Dad. I’ve read and heard and seen a lot. You become more blessed when you give than when you receive.” Gilbert

Homeless kids fall under one of several categories:

  • They share housing due to loss of housing or economic hardship. They’re living in motels, hotels, trailer parks or camping grounds. They’re living in emergency or transitional shelters. They’ve been abandoned in hospitals. They’re awaiting foster care placement.
  • Their primary nighttime residence is a public or private place “not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.”
  • They’re living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, and bus or train stations.
  • They’re migratory children who either are migratory agricultural workers or whose parents or spouses are migratory agricultural workers.

Sources: McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act; U.S. Department of Education

Chairwoman Miriam Marsh Sifuentes and team have worked feverishly to ensure the homeless and foster kids are not forgotten. Miriam had this to say,  “Foster and homeless youth are already at a disadvantage in life and really need help with basic needs, school completion, housing, and many other things. This is why we at Brighter Generation Foundation exist…to let our youth know that they are not forgotten and that we are here to help them build strong and sustainable foundations.” . If you wish to make a donation to the Brighter Generation Foundation please visit the PayPal account that helps serve those in need.
