Truly Using Beauty for Good Anyone can write a check and send it off to a charitable organization. In return, they get a short-lived “I did a good deed” feeling and a tax deduction. This is enough for some. But for more than 20 years, Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery has been impacting our community through service to patients and personal giving to various local charities by doctors Ali Mosharrafa and Tamir Mosharrafa, brothers and plastic surgeons. They had a desire to do more than write a check to support local nonprofit organizations who are doing tremendous work in the Valley. “In our medical practice, over the span of our careers, we can and will do a lot of good, and that will impact the lives of our patients who walk through our doors,” says Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa. “Through Beauty for Good, we are able to reach countless people and impact many more lives beyond our patients. One day, these doors will close, and we will no longer perform lifechanging cosmetic and breast reconstruction surgeries. But through our foundation, we have an opportunity to build a legacy that will continue to reach many.” In 2015, the doctors co-founded The Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery Foundation (dba Beauty for Good), a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Beauty for Good’s mission is “to help beautiful changes in individuals inspire beautiful changes in our community.” Their goal is to bring awareness to and support causes in the Valley that are close to them – causes they believe in. Dr. Ali Mosharrafa is the chairman of the advisory board for Prevent Child Abuse Arizona, and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa has given his time and talents removing branding from human trafficking victims for The Phoenix Dream Center. Kara Schell, managing director of Beauty for Good, has volunteered many hours for the charities that they support and is part of a mentoring group with Fresh Start Women’s Foundation. They truly have a personal, hands-on approach to their support of local nonprofits. “Being involved is more than writing a check. We choose our charitable partners carefully, and we commit to be a true partner, not just a sponsor to their cause,” Kara says. “Many small nonprofit organizations are unheard of, and the work they are doing could make a significant impact with more resources and support from Valley residents and businesses. We help those organizations showcase their mission in many ways through Beauty for Good by providing monetary gifts and hosting events to bring awareness to our charitable partners.” Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery is preparing to host the Second Annual Beauty for Good Gala at the Arizona Biltmore on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The gala will benefit five local charities and is co-hosted by emcee Olivia Fierro, Good Morning Arizona news anchor.
