Salon hunting for funds to help Hood Canal Coalition
POULSBO While opportunities abound to celebrate Earth Day this month, Terri Schumacher of downtown Poulsbos The Head Hunter feels shes come up with a pretty good deal.
Get a haircut help a grassroots environmental organization.
Now through the end of April, Schumachers salon is offering 100 discounted hair cuts to support the Hood Canal Coalition. Those taking part in the fund-raiser will get a $30 haircut for $20, of which $10 will go to the coalition. The company hopes to raise $1,000 for the cause.
As a salon that carries Aveda products, The Head Hunter is required to do some sort of fund-raiser to mark Earth Day (April 22) or Earth Month (April) each year.
Aveda normally dictates what you do, this year it was global warming, but they also suggest you support grassroots organizations, Schumacher explained of her first-ever local effort.
The Hood Canal Coalition has been in existence for about two years and was started by a group of citizens who were concerned about the potential impacts of Fred Hill Materials proposed Pit-to-Pier gravel mining project.
Today, steering committee member Donna Nolan said the group has 2,200 members, about 52 of which are businesses, including The Head Hunter.
Of course, were very happy about that kind of support, Nolan said of this months fund-raiser. (Schumacher) says only community can save our community and thats so true.
Schumacher said she first heard about the coalition through its Web site. Throughout the salons effort, the organization has information on display and take-home brochures available at the Poulsbo location. Schumacher said shes enjoyed the fund-raiser so far because shes been able to educate so many of her customers about a local environmental debate.
A lot of them dont even know about the Pit-to-Pier project and for some of them its the first time theyve heard of the Hood Canal Coalition and the Pit-to-Pier so were educating a lot of them, she commented. And theyre happy to support it.
This is a great opportunity to spread the word and do something for the community, Nolan added. We continue to gain support and to educate people about this project.
