Huntington Beach Salon to Give Haircuts at No Cost to Support Wheelchairs for Kids

Global Mobility USA, a Van Nuys, California-based nonprofit humanitarian organization providing wheelchairs at no cost to children and adults in need around the world, and daniel & co, a full-service salon in Huntington Beach, California, today announced a special event to promote the support for persons with disabilities. On June 12, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., skilled stylists from daniel & co will provide professional haircuts to the public at no cost. Haircut recipients will be asked to make a donation towards a life-changing wheelchair for a child.

“We are honored to be partnering with daniel & co to help kids around the world get the wheelchairs they need to live a fulfilling life,” said Chris Grange, COO of Global Mobility USA. “The commitment of daniel & co – and their expert stylists – to the cause of global mobility is a testament of their honor and dedication not only to their local community but also to the global community.”

It is estimated that 70 million people around the world need a wheelchair but only 5-15 percent have access to one. Since 2012, Global Mobility USA has been providing appropriate wheelchairs for free to persons with disabilities in countries such as Guatemala, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Vietnam and Indonesia. Each donated wheelchair is of the highest quality, and is custom-fitted for each recipient’s individual needs.

“As one who personally needs assistance from a mobility device, I am privileged to partner with Global Mobility by helping to make a way for children living in poverty to receive the life- changing gift of a wheelchair,” said Dan Kafer, owner of daniel & co.

Global Mobility USA representatives will also be on-site to receive donations of used wheelchairs. Used wheelchairs will be taken to the Global Mobility warehouse, where they will be expertly up-cycled and prepared for a child, teen or adult in need.
