Kelowna, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 10, 2009
Linda Russell and Kathie Jones-Hannem, owners of Total E'Clips SalonSpa would like to invite the women of the Okanagan to put a little, or a lot, of pink in their hair this month. To raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the owners support the Pink Hair for Hope Campaign. The campaign, in its fifth year, encourages women to show they care by adding an official pink hair extension to their locks in exchange for a $10 donation to fund Breast Cancer Research.
Owner Kathie Hannen-Jones explains why the campaign is so important to her: "The Pink Hair for Hope Campaign relates to almost every client we have. In one way or another, many women and men's lives have been touched and affected by breast cancer and we want to show our support for the courageous battle that survivors and their families have waged and also acknowledge those who were not as fortunate. Not only do the extensions get people talking about breast cancer and early prevention, but they also add a fun element to a serious topic."
The kick-off for the campaign started at the CIBC Run For The Cure Event October 4, 2009. The pink hair extensions have proved wildly popular with both participants and supporters at the event. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and throughout the entire month, both the Lakeshore and Spall Plaza locations of Total E'Clips will have plenty of pink hair extensions available for anyone who wants to show their support and make a bit of a style statement at the same time.
All of the extensions are made from human hair and are available in four shades of pink from pale pink to fuchsia. No appointment is necessary, just pop into either Total E'Clips location and pick a shade. The extensions take just a minute to apply and are attached to your natural hair with an invisible keratin bond. With care, the extensions can last for a month, but if you want them removed sooner you can return to the Total E'Clips SalonSpa's for free removal. Get one or get many!
In 2009, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that 22,770 women in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5,400 will die because of it. On average 437 will be diagnosed every week. One in nine (11%) Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Only one in every 28 Canadian women will die from breast cancer. This means that about two-thirds of the women diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada will live through it.
All donations go directly to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to fund research.
