One thing I never thought I would discuss around these parts is a haircut. BUT, when it’s for a cause, I am ready to jump in, head first.
My husband and I donate to a few causes month after month, and Share A Haircut is this month’s favorite!
Hair Cuttery, the largest family owned chain of hair salons in the country, expects to donate more than 100,000 back-to-school haircuts. That is a total of $1.6 million in this year’s Share-A-Haircut program. This is the 14th year of the program, and since its launch in 1999, Hair Cuttery has donated more than 700,000 haircuts to kids in need.
How about this. Did you know that a back-to-school haircut can impact a child’s academic performance?! Think about it. How good do you feel when you step out of the salon with your new mane, all cleaned up and styled? I’m pretty sure the same goes for these students. They get a new cut and they feel confident, beautiful, and ready to tackle the new school year.
“Share-a-Haircut is about the ritual of preparing for a new school year,” said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “A new haircut symbolizes a new start and new possibilities.” I couldn’t agree more.
Hair Cuttery donates one free haircut to a child in need FOR every child’s haircut (18 years and younger) purchased during the month of August. The free haircut vouchers are valid up to November 15, 2013.
Working with more than 150 local governments and community organizations, Hair Cuttery determines the areas of greatest need. Nearly 900 salons nationwide will participate in this year’s event. To search Hair Cuttery locations, visit the Hair Cuttery website.
