Kindness Matters 

it's contagious, cool and in style all year long!

LOVE is always the way! And we can't express our thanks enough to our men and ladies in blue. This year, the Class of 2018 U Shine Models collaborated early to raise money for the Albemarle County Police Foundation and boy did they knock it out of the park! Together, we teamed up with Kendra Scott at the Shops at Stonefield and were able to raise and donate just over $800 to help the ACPD with continued training, canine care and so much more! Thank you to everyone that came out to make this FUNdraiser a success!

The U Shine Models are back at it and paying it forward again this Christmas! The Class of 2017 U Shine Models and I have partnered with TOY LIFT to bring smiles to kids in our community this Christmas. We need your help! We are taking donations to shop for new toys and we will be delivering them on December 2nd to the Toy Lift.

Class of 2016 #ushinemodels

The Class of 2016 U Shine Spokesmodels stopped by and had a blast learning all about Love it Louder. And you can too!!! Check out the Love is Louder website and continue to pass on positive vibes. You just never know who's life you can change with just a smile or one kind word. Kindness Matters. Kindness is contagious. Make your words count. 


In 2013, U Shine photography began a Kindness Matters movement. Every year, I work with my team of U Shine models towards a cause that is significant to them.  It is my hope to get you inspired and involved. Remember, Kindness Matters is cool and in style all through the year, plus it's totally contagious, let's make it a top trend! What's your voice? What's important to you - shout it out and let me know so we can make it happen.
