Brava Salon Specialists in Madison, WI is making it easy to connect with the salons and hairdressers in Ukraine.
Jim Marcks, president of Brava Salon Specialists, and his team have made reached out to and made connections with hundreds of salons in Ukraine.
"Our team at Brava Salon Specialists created a website and worked for weeks to develop a database of salons in Ukraine," Marcks explains. "With over 600 salons so far, salons in the US now have the opportunity to help and to 'adopt' a specific Ukrainian salon by going to ChangeisCalling.com. And your salon guests will be able to donate directly to those hairdressers through Facebook and PayPal."
Salons can also get the word out to their clientele by using the marketing materials shared on ChangeisCalling.com. Marcks suggests that salons set up donation boxes for clientele to offer their financial support.
"This plan will get 100% of the money directly into the bank accounts of hairdressers in Ukraine," Marcks continues. "Donations have been very gratefully received by these Ukrainian hairdressers who are able to use the money to purchase medicine, pet food, first-aid kits, food, clothing, water and shelter. Remember: $50 U.S. = $150 in Ukraine."
Marcks says that interested salons may call his office at 608.268.6529 and they will match your salon, based on your salon size and the size of the salon in Ukraine. They will follow up with an email containing the support material and contact information needed to get started with a fundraising event.
