Would you like to better the lives of women in Uganda? If you have hair on your head, you can.
This Saturday, Chatters Canada Ltd. is holding a cutathon called A Beautiful Cause. Customers can obtain a haircut for a minimum donation of $12, with all proceeds going to AG Hair’s Women Leading Change Foundation.
Since 2008, AG Hair has raised more than $700,000 to help build schools for girls in Africa.
The beauty supply company is currently seeking to construct and furnish two classroom buildings, and build eight staff houses, in Northern Uganda. Red Deer-based Chatters, which is AG Hair’s largest customer, has committed to raise at least $100,000 in support of the effort.
In addition to the donations that Chatters collects through it’s A Beautiful Cause campaign tomorrow, AG Hair is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its products, including a special Women Leading Change shampoo and conditioner box.
There are more than 90 Chatters salons across Canada, including at Southpointe Common, Bower Place Shopping Centre and Parkland Mall in Red Deer.
