Have a purple heart.

A famous rock band once wrote these extraordinary lyrics that soon became the mantra of an entire generation: 

There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy

There's nothing you can make that can't be made
No one you can save that can't be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn to be you in time
It's easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

-- The Beatles

February is all about sharing the love. Perhaps it's a gentle reminder that we should be loving others AND ourselves on the regular, too - not just on Hallmark holidays. 

Today I'm teaming up with Samaritane to share the love two ways: with you and with the homeless. And you can help, too. This month, have a purple heart and join me in The Purple Heart Campaign.

The Purple Heart campaign features $30 spa, salon and wellness destination services at some of Chicago's top spots now through the end of February. A portion of proceeds from each $30 service benefits Interfaith House in Chicago and their mission to help ill and injured homeless adults restore their health, rebuild their lives and regain self sufficiency.

Consumers may choose from must-have treatments such as Eyelash Extensions and Brazilian Waxing as well as basic wellness necessities like Yoga, Alchemy Stress Rituals and Energy Clearing.

Here’s a small sampling of some of offers in Chicago:

  • Luminere Esthetics and Wellness | 224-420-2784: $30 Brazilian and Brow Wax: Using the gentlest Cirepil wax.
  • Greatly Gracious | 312-543-5614: $30 Private Yoga Class for You and a Friend
  • Deborah Acker Transformational Coaching Center | 312-933-6677: $30 2-for-1 Life Shifting Classes: 2-3 hour classes that focus on one or more of the following: Manifesting, Intuition, Miracles, Energy Clearing and/or Connecting to Your Soul’s Messages.

At Samaritane, we believe that beauty is more than skin deep. By giving back to the Chicago community, we rejuvenate our souls as well as our bodies. Samaritane is designed specifically to allow you to nourish your body and spirit while enriching and beautifying our very own neighborhood with donations to local charities

I hope you'll join us. All you need is love. xo
