Lindsey King founded What You Deserve in 2019, when she organized a day of
makeovers for two moms that were in need during the holiday season. This
inspired Lindsey to form a non-profit organization to continue providing moms in
need with support, services, and a way to feel confident about themselves. 

 

This is just beginning, we have big goals in order to help a large scale of women
break down the pressures of being a modern mother. Being a mom today is full
of pressure and can often feel lonely and stressful. What You Deserve is here to
let moms know they aren’t alone. We are so excited for big things to come in the
future such as monthly support groups, work books to help with time
management and confidence.

 

Stay connected via email and social media for future events and opportunities to volunteer.

Lindsey King

Founder

Hey You! My name is Lindsey King and I live in Poway, California outside of San Diego. I am a hairstylist at The Beauty Bungalow salon, and a mom of two. I am married to an incredible man who supports all of my dreams and ideas. And that’s exactly what this is; a dream of mine I am able to make come to life.

As a kid, I had a philanthropic nature. I collected money year-round in my piggy bank and my parents allowed me to spend it on what I wanted that year in December. Instead, I gave it out to the homeless in downtown Seattle. This idea of a “Mom Makeover” came to me after hearing about the pressures and the struggles of mom life during the holidays, with the highest expectations and financial stretching, just trying to please everyone. There is nothing left for yourself. Being a mom, it’s so easy to let the mom guilt and neglect consume you. In 2019 this started as a Facebook thread in a Mom group, and this year it has elevated to so much more. I just know the best is yet to come.
