The Australian Hairdressing Council (AHC) is giving you the opportunity to do some serious good, nominating their chosen charity for 2019, the Charlie Teo Foundation, and kicking off the Charlie’s Angels campaign. Throughout March, hairdressers will ask each client for a gold coin donation for the charity, which will combine for the total donation from the AHC.
“It’s not a huge ask, and with the volume of clients that visit our salons every day, we believe it’s a great way to achieve significant numbers for this cause,” said Australian Hairdressing Council CEO Sandy Chong. “Brain cancer has touched many of our lives and we are committed to supporting the vital research undertaken by Professor Charlie Teo and his amazing team to make a real difference in the lives of those affected.”
The AHC have put their unifying powers to good use in the past, raising money for diverse foundations and this acts as the latest important cause to work towards. The campaign allows salons to dress up with their team and clients in line with the conceptual campaign theme, as well as pledging their own donations to support their clients.
“Essentially, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia,” shared Professor Charlie Teo. “It kills more young adults than any other cancer, yet it is the least funded of all the cancers despite those statistics. Our collaboration with the Australian Hairdressing Council came about because we saw a real fit between the Australian hair and beauty industries and brain cancer patients. We are asking for hairdressers around the country to become ‘angels’ for us by participating in this great initiative and help these patients get back into the community and feel normal again, which is very important when it comes to recovery and rehabilitation after brain surgery.”
The final funds will be announced at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards in April, so dig out your proverbial halo, register your interest and get involved in this important cause.
