You Can Make a Difference Foundation

 The You Can Make a Difference Foundation was founded in 2004 by Don and Sylvia Shaw, owners of the Atlanta-based DASS Salon and Spa.

This 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization is established in memory of their daughter, Donielle Shaw Pressley, who passed away at the age of thirty-four after from melanoma skin cancer.

The Foundation honors Donielle's memory and legacy daily by raising awareness about the importance of early detection of melanoma skin cancers by educating beauty industry professionals and the public.
