Kids Helping Kids is helping children who have lost their hair. Coming up in May, teens who volunteer with the non-profit organization will take over Salon Kiklo to raise money to buy and maintain wigs for children who could not otherwise afford them.
It is expected that throughout the day around eighty customers will participate in “Cuts For A Cause” getting haircuts and washes and blowouts. In addition, as a thank-you for participating in the fundraiser, clients will receive a coupon for 20 percent off their next salon service. As in previous years, KHK middle and high school volunteers will be there to eagerly greet their clients, offer refreshments, process transactions, educate them about other KHK events and run a raffle. In addition, outside the salon, Kids Helping Kids will set-up a bake sale to help fund their other upcoming youth-led service projects.
“This is our fifth year and we are proud and excited to continue our support of 'Cuts for a Cause.' It has been a wonderful journey working with Kids Helping Kids to help them raise awareness of this important organization and raise funds to finance the wigs. The effects of this special event go far beyond simply raising money to help someone less fortunate. KHK aims to send the message that it is not difficult to help out your community," said Stacey Andrea, manager of Salon Kiklo.
“If each person helps a little bit,” said Lexi Kelley, 17 year-old founder of the organization, “then the overall accomplishment is great.”
The group hopes to raise over $3,500.
Cuts for a Cause will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday May 4 at Salon Kiklo, 126 Main St, New Canaan. Call (203) 956-7100 to book an appointment.
