Just this past April, Keen-Hadman and her team ventured to the Dominican Republic, where they painted six schools, weeded, assembled playground equipment and delivered school supplies. Spanish-speaking members of her team also read to the children. "BeautiControl has a foundation that partners with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. One little girl got her wish from us to go to Disney, and they asked her what she liked about it the most and she said that she liked the fact that there were no needles there," she said. "I cried." Keen-Hadman said that she and her team have worked with BeautiControl and the company's efforts to support the Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery; this year they will provide reconstructive surgery for five women who are battling breast cancer. They have also partnered again with Women Helping Others, which has given more than $6 million to women and children in need. According to Keen-Hadman, at least 250,000 are from Florida. "I've always worked with philanthropic projects, even when I was a single mother, and I taught my kids that, too. I'm most proud of my 10 year old granddaughter who has started her own giving program called, Barefoot No More. She has collected 400 pairs of shoes and they are given to kids right here in Polk County," she said. The WAY Center in Haines City is one of the places where those shoes are distributed, and Keen-Hadman has her fingerprints there too.
