Make A Change Bigger Than A Hairstyle
We often feel powerless, not knowing what to do to make a to the lives of people in need. This clever idea means not spending an additional cent to what you normally would anyway. ELEVEN Australia and Hagar will continue the fight to end slavery at their annual Style for Life Day, on Sunday 26 July 2015.
Last year they raised a massive $38,000 to support the funding, training and economic empowerment of vulnerable women and young people affected by human rights abuse. They hope to beat this figure this year.
Now in its third year, the national event will see even more ELEVEN Australia salons around the country open their doors on a Sunday to cut and style as many customers as they can sit in their chairs, with all proceeds from the day donated to not-for profit organisation, Hagar.
Hagar is an international charity that works to restore the lives of women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse including rape, paedophilia and modern slavery. With specialist recovery programs in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam, Hagar provides specialist trauma counselling, intensive education programs and career training opportunities for people who would otherwise have had no chance of a future.
They've got some pretty big celebrity supporters such as Hagar patron, Actor and Director, Rachel Griffiths, Australian actress and Style for Life ambassador plus rising star Demi Harman (Harman, 22, is best known for her role as Sasha Bezmel on iconic Australian drama, Home and Away) and now presenting as part of Channel Seven's Better Homes and Gardens team and in the series Winners & Losers.
They will be doing their bit to support Style for Life Day by encouraging all Australians to book their next hair appointment on Sunday 26 July.
Hagar patron, Demi Harman is thrilled to be making a difference to women and children's lives around the world. "I've always admired the work Hagar does in helping those who have suffered human rights abuse. I'm absolutely delighted to become a part of the Hagar team and help raise the profile of the organisation and funds for those who need it most. I love the initiative by ELEVEN Australia to bring this to life," says Harman. ELEVEN Australia co-Creative Director and three-time Hairdresser of the Year, Joey Scandizzo concerred by adding that "I love that together, our industry can make such a positive global change."
It's so easy to contribute to this worthy cause. Just book your next hair appointment at a participating salon on Sunday 26 July, and you will be making a difference to the lives of people in need by supporting the funding, training and economic empowerment of vulnerable women and young people affected by human rights abuse.
Last year funds raised on Style for Life Day were used to support the lives of brave women in Cambodia. By providing a skill, such as hairdressing, women are given the power of independence and a second chance at life. Isn't it a good time for you to get a new style for life?
