Elle Marie has been in the forefront of the October pink hair craze since 2007 as ladies (and a few brave men) proudly display their support for breast cancer awareness by wearing pink hair extensions all month long.
Requesting a small donation of just $10, to date Elle Marie has raised over $17,000 toward the cause. This money was distributed to a couple different cancer charities through a pink hair program organized by their hair extension supplier.
This year Elle Marie is switching gears and going with a more local approach by raising and distributing funds themselves.
Now through October 31, for a minimum $10 donation guests can visit any of Elle Marie’s locations in Lake Stevens, Lynnwood and Mill Creek to receive a pink hair extension as part of their new Pink Hair 2 Save a Pair breast cancer awareness fundraiser.
All money raised will be distributed to Snohomish County residents selected by Elle Marie’s management team based on submitted nomination forms.
“In 2012 we opened our third salon, all in Snohomish County. Given our commitment to the region, and the staying power of the pink hair trend, we felt it was time to revamp our approach to fundraising and create our own foundation in an effort to support those in need right here in our community,” said Marketing Director Jody Bossert.
Guests who know of a deserving friend or family-member who has been touched by breast cancer in some way or another are encouraged to complete a Pink Hair 2 Save a Pair nomination form, available at each salon or online at http://www.EllesAngels.org. Completed forms can be dropped off at any salon or scanned and e-mailed to Lorry at ElleMarieHairStudio.com All nominations must be received by November 1, 2013.
