Hair Cuttery Partners with the National Network to End Domestic Violence for the 4th Year
May Share-A-Haircut Campaign to Support Victims of Domestic Violence
Hair Cuttery and the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) are teaming up to raise awareness about domestic violence through the Share-A-Haircut program on Monday, May 1 and Tuesday, May 2. For every haircut purchased at one of the Hair Cuttery’s nearly 900 salons, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a victim of domestic violence through a network of state coalitions and local programs nationwide.
“Domestic violence is a very serious issue that affects people of every age, gender, and background across the country, but all too often goes unnoticed” said Dennis Ratner, CEO and founder of Hair Cuttery. “By coming together with NNEDV, we can help spread awareness, spark action, and restore hope to survivors.”
Through the partnership, Hair Cuttery and NNEDV will work closely to distribute thousands of free haircut certificates to individuals affected by domestic violence, including women, children, and men.
“It is critical to stand with survivors right now – in every way that we can. We are thrilled that Hair Cuttery continues to support survivors and be a voice against violence,” says Kim Gandy, NNEDV President and CEO. “Our partnership with Hair Cuttery is a uniquely empowering one. The gift of a haircut cannot be underestimated. It allows survivors to save money, which aids in their economic independence, and provides an often rare opportunity to relax and be pampered.”
This year marks the 18th year of Share-A-Haircut, with the program already having donated more than 76,000 certificates to the homeless in February. Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving that has supported a range of local and national causes including: St. Baldrick’s Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and Girls on the Run.
