October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout this month, numerous charities will raise money and host events in locations all through the U.S. On the 13th of the month, ladies everywhere will let their tatas hang free by not wearing a bra to support the cause. Many beauty schools throughout the country are doing their share to show their support as well.
Paul Mitchell Schools nationwide are raising money for breast cancer. They do so in many different ways and host activities to promote awareness. Back in July, the school offered those battling breast cancer and survivors free beauty treatments. Who knows what excitement they’ll have in store this month.
Paul Mitchell Schools aren’t the only ones either. In Lamar Country, TX, a cosmetology school is raising money for the cause. They teamed with high schools and a boutique to offer pink feathers and hair extensions for $10, which will go to support breast cancer foundations. Jamie Chapman, who is an instructor and a survivor, is encouraging her students to make as many donations as they can.
In Tallahassee, the streets are going pink and Kanvas, a local spa, is joining. As of October 9th, their sign is pink, and they hung pink bows in the front to show support. Not to mention, they’ll help out during fundraisers for breast cancer.
Metro Beauty Academy also is showing their support. They’re selling pink hair extensions for $10 and beaded bracelets for $20. And a portion of proceeds go to breast cancer awareness charities.
In south Florida, Aveda is doing their part. For instance, all their proceeds from their fashion show are going to the Breast Cancer Foundation. They’re also selling pink ribbon Hand Relief, which is a $4-donation to the same foundation. For a $5 donation to the charity, students are able to wear pink for the day. And for a $10-donation, students are able to dress up in their scary, sexy or cute costumes for Halloween. Evergreen Beauty College is selling pink ribbons to earn money for the cause.
If you want to show your support, have your employees wear pink for a day. Host an event as your spa, school or other beauty facility and offer a prize to those who donate. Make a special bracelet or ribbon to sell and have a portion or all proceeds go to a breast cancer research facility. Additionally, you could designate a product or a product line as “a pink product” to sell. Feel free to have the product packaged in pink or include a pink ribbon on the bottle. You may even want to present customers with a service that you’ll donate a portion of all proceeds from to a breast cancer awareness organization.
