Civello Salon and Spa locations were packed on Monday, April 7 for their annual event, Cut-A-Thon and Beyond. Proceeds from all services from the day were donated to WaterCan, a charity dedicated to providing clean drinking water to the world’s poorest people. All four Civello locations raised a combined $17,984 for the organization.
Ray Civello, Aveda Canada’s CEO and President, was proud that his staff used their day off to help those less fortunate, saying that we often take for granted our ability to turn on the faucet and enjoy a clean glass of water.
Here are the other Earth Month initiatives that Aveda salons are participating in:
-Aveda will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sales of its limited edition Earth Month Light the Way candles to Global Greengrants Fund, a non-profit dedicated to mobilizing resources to support grassroots environmental initiatives.
-On April 22, walkers from 15 cities will participate in a 6km Walk for Water to raise funds for WaterCan. Their goal is to raise $600,000 for the charity. Go to www.iwalkforwater.ca to learn more and get involved.
