[ARCHIVED] Ardsley students: Pretty Skin against Covid-19 initiative

Kelly Tierney, who will be an 11th grader and her sister Claire, who will be a 9th grader of Ardsley bring hope to nurses with their Pretty Skin Against Covid-19 initiative... 8 year old Sam Weintraub's song of hope...and a message about stormwater

Tierney sisters of Ardsley bring hope to nurses with their Pretty Skin Against Covid-19 initiative...a song of hope. Kelly Tierney will be an 11th grader at Ardsley High School in the fall and her sister Claire is going to be a 9th grader. They came up with a very creative idea that has helped bring smiles to many nurses who had bruises on their faces from the N-95 masks that they have been wearing during COVID-19 crisis. This is their story: Pretty Skin Against Covid-19 Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, the Tierney sisters have started a project called “Pretty Skin Against Covid-19”. They  started this project when they  noticed that their Aunts, who are nurses, have bruises on their faces from the N-95 masks that they are wearing for long shifts at the hospital. ·         The nurses are stressed & emotional from the many deaths and seriously ill patients they are caring for due to Covid-19. ·         Many don’t have the time to pamper themselves to feel/look pretty because they are constantly in and out of the hospital and are exhausted. Seeing this, Kelly and Claire knew that they had to do something and give back to all the amazing frontline heroes that are working in the hospitals.  This is when they had the idea of giving each nurse a skincare and perfume product to brighten their day and hopefully remind them that self-care is important. Since March, they  have donated 26,419 skincare & perfume products to 10 local hospitals Columbia    Montefiore    Phelps        St. Johns    Sloan Kettering Westchester Medical Center    Stamford Hospital    White Plains Hospital  Blythedale Children’s Hospital    Elizabeth Seton Children’s     Empress EMT  Also, they  have donated to various local charities that are supporting people in need during the pandemic. The charities include Little Sisters of the Poor    Ability Beyond     Hudson Valley Community Services WestHab    The Coachman Family Center      The Tierney sisters have brought hope to many people.

 Another young man, Samuel Weintraub (an 8 year old  child actor who lives in Hartsdale) shared with me his Song of Hope: You’ll be Okay by a Great Big World. Please enjoy. We are fortunate to have some amazing young people living in our community.  Makes us optimistic about the future. PAUL FEINER
