Beauty School Raises $22,500 for Haiti Earthquake Relief

marinello-beauty-school It’s been just over a month since the devastating earthquake in Haiti, and organizations and charities around the county are still in need of aid for the earthquake-ravaged country. Charities and corporations aren’t the only ones pitching in to help Haiti. California-based Marinello Schools of Beauty recently raised an impressive $22,500 in funds for Haiti.

Marinello donated the proceeds from all student salon and spa services performed on January 16th throughout its 41 campuses. Students, staff and faculty took to the internet to get the word out through the use of Twitter, Facebook and email campaigns. As a result almost 1,500 guests got pampered in support of this worthy cause. All the money raised will be donated to the American Red Cross.

  1. Winn Claybaugh Says:

    Paul Mitchell Schools Raise $100,000 for Haiti Relief

    In immediate response to Haiti’s devastating earthquake, Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh called for a nationwide fundraising day. “Our goal is $1,000 per school, times our 100 schools, for a total of $100,000,” Winn said. The 100 Paul Mitchell Schools nationwide rose to the challenge and raised over $83,500 within two weeks. A personal donation from John Paul DeJoria, chairman and cofounder of John Paul Mitchell Systems, brought the total to $100,000.

    Future Professionals broke from their signature black outfits to hold “Casual for a Cause” days, donating money to dress casually for the day. They also invited family, friends, and guests to “buy” paper bottles for Haiti relief, donated tips, and held a number of other activities, from bake sales to benefit concerts.

    Winn challenged every family, individual, salon, and organization to do something similar and get organized, active, and involved. “I’ve often heard people say, ‘Somebody should do something,’” Winn said. “Well, YOU are that somebody. You can make a difference, and I hope that you will!”
