Hair salon’s Share-A-Haircut program is in its 20th year
On Monday, May 20, and Tuesday, May 21, Hair Cuttery and the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) are teaming up to raise awareness for domestic violence through Hair Cuttery’s Share-A-Haircut program. For every haircut purchased at one of the Hair Cuttery’s over 800 salons, one free haircut certificate will be donated to a survivor of domestic violence through a network of state coalitions and local programs nationwide.
“Hair Cuttery is proud to work within our local neighborhoods to make a difference,” said Dennis Ratner, Co-Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “Our goal through the Share-A-Haircut program is to shine a light on those in need and to help strengthen and give a voice to those in our communities.”
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.
“The vast majority of those impacted by domestic violence experience some level of financial abuse. The gift of a free, fresh haircut can make the world of difference. A haircut is a gift that supports economic empowerment and gives survivors a moment to practice self-care,” shared Kim Gandy, NNEDV President and CEO. “Hair Cuttery’s continued commitment to championing domestic violence is the kind of commitment that creates change.”
The Share-A-Haircut program is in its 20th year, with over 51,000 certificates already having been donated in February to the homeless. Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving that has supported a range of local and national causes including Breast Cancer Research Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and Girls on the Run.
The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that serves as a leading national voice for domestic violence victims and their allies. NNEDV’s membership is comprised of all 56 state and territorial coalitions against domestic violence, including over 2,000 local programs. NNEDV has been advancing the movement against domestic violence for over 25 years, having led efforts among domestic violence advocates and survivors in urging Congress to pass the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
