So one day, as I was sitting in the chair in Buzz Buzz Hair Company’s salon, the wonderful owner, Amy, who was dying my hair came up with a fabulous idea for a fundraiser. She suggested doing a cut-a-thon, or in other words, a full days worth of cutting hair and hanging out at the salon. She also graciously decided to donate 100% of the profits that day to my fundraising efforts.

Yes, 100%. It’s amazing, I know

We had sooo much fun all day; she cut the hair and I swept it up. It was super amazing seeing everyone walking out with their hair done up amazingly and a huge smile on all of their faces.

Bailey, one of Amy’s employees, sadly couldn’t be there all day but she cut the hair of a little 3-year-old named Beau who was the cutest thing! He sat so nicely in his chair and even got a little bit of red to spice up his new do. He loved it so much!

Even though we only cut hair that day,we had a special twist. We had an amazing anonymous person pay for 3 hair cuts to anyone who wanted them. This act of kindness was used as a way to fill up all of the spots available, and it worked! We had a full day, and I would like to thank everyone who came out to support me. It really means a lot!

 

I really enjoyed the day, seeing faces coming in familiar and going out looking slightly less familiar (thanks Amy and Bailey), and I am glad the event was such a success. I would also like to thank Amy for putting together a gift bag of hair supplies for me to use during the week in Toronto! You were such an amazing help Amy, and I’m glad I got to work with you.

I managed to snag a selfie at the end of the day. All worked out!
