In honor of breast cancer awareness month, we want to share a little bit about a business that is dear to our hearts: Strands of Strength:a local nonprofit that helps provide and style wigs for women undergoing treatment. October is Salon Month and we are joining other area salons in supporting this amazing organization by collecting donations!
“We all know how we feel when we walk into the world with a new haircut. It’s like having a new outlook on life. We’re giving that feeling – the feeling of hope and confidence – back to these cancer patients. Established in 2011 by a cancer survivor, Strands of Strength (SOS) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide wigs free of charge to needy women suffering hair loss due to cancer treatment. The wigs offered by Strands of Strength disguise hair loss, decrease feelings of vulnerability and provide greater self-esteem, hopefully resulting in the personal strength needed to successfully battle the disease.” [read more HERE on the Strands of Strength website]
Each and every one of us has been touched by cancer in some way and we want to do what we can to help. Organizations like Locks of Love, etc are great, but wouldn’t it feel even better to help locally?! Your donation could help your 2nd grade teacher or your neighbor…
We would love for you to stop in to the salon through the end of the month and see how you can help! xoxo.
