Just before Christmas I was humbled to be offered a position on the Fundraising committee for HAAB and give back to a community who has been so supportive of me over my long career, It’s not all about Balayage . So whats that you might say well it’s the “hair and beauty benevolent fund” set up to specifically help Individuals and their families in our Industry . since 1853
An industry thats based on making people feel beautiful and youthful the thought of illness or disability is rarely associated with those who make it happen. HAAAB receives over 300 applications every year and and always can be relied upon to help those who need it the most.
As an industry we are committed to our charity work and their are so many charities pulling at our heart strings and so many in need. But HAAB needs you! we need your help in raising funds so that we can help people in our very own hairdressing community.
I’ve just put a HAAB box in the staff room at Paul Edmonds its the swear box a simple way of raising some money and would love it if this was the case in every salon, maybe a donate a tip day or any of the other ways you raise money for charity you could help raise money for HAAB we can’t do the work we do without funding . Its not all doom and gloom £400 was all it needed to get a kit bag together for a young man who had been kicked out of home by his parents and left with nothing, that kit bag allowed him to keep working and get on with his life
Think if every salon in the UK did something small how much good work could be done in our community of talented people
For many people, contributing to HABB is a way of putting something back into the industry that has been so good to them. For some, it’s the realisation that success can be fleeting, and unexpected events can completely change your circumstances. Others are moved by the stories of the people that the Benevolent supports. What matters is that you are involved, and you are playing your part in helping HABB help as many people as possible.
We need £150k a year to meet our existing commitments to beneficiaries and to take new requests for assistance on board.
This year we are going to be out and about in as many ways as we can asking for Money so expect to see me and the rest of the committee with buckets and lots of other really interesting fun ways to raise money
