Quite often, I am approached to help spread the word about local and national charity initiatives on my blog.  I really believe in a lot of these charities and I will try to post on as many of the requests as possible over the coming months!  It is my small way of helping and giving back! 

I was pleased to hear about that a local company, Beaner's Fun Cuts for Kids, was going to be running a great charity event later this month and I thought I would share it on my blog!



 Helping Kids Get a Head Start for Back 2 SchoolBeaners Fun Cuts for Kids collects funds and school supplies for children in need

 
Calgary, Alberta – As the lazy days of summer turn into brisk fall mornings, kids and parents alike will be getting ready for the much anticipated “back to school” frenzy. Topping parents list of to dos is to get their children haircuts, new clothing and school supplies. Sadly, many parents can’t afford the much-needed supplies for their children that many kids take for granted. Beaners recognizes this problem and has teamed up with the local United Way Chapter to provide disadvantaged children with a helping hand to start the school year off right.
With the help of the United Way, Beaners will collect and distribute un-opened school supplies for the month of August. The United Way will help by getting these school supplies into the little hands that need them. Beaners will also be donating $1.00 from each haircut during the week of August 21- August 28, to help raise additional funds for disadvantaged children.

“Back to School” is an exciting time for so many children, and we want to ensure that it’s a fun and exciting time for all children,” says Debbie Bertie, President, Beaners Fun Cuts for Kids. Each of our stores will be outfitted with drop boxes where parents and children can bring in their donations of un-opened school supplies. Not only will this effort be helping disadvantaged families, but it will also teach kids about the importance of helping others.”
Giving and Getting Back too!

In addition to children helping others they will also have the chance to win a prize themselves. From August 21-28 when kids come in for a haircut they will have the chance to enter a colouring contest. The prize is a $140 family gift basket chalked full of goodies to get the entire family ready for back to school including:

· A free hair cut, shampoo and conditioner from Beaners

· A Head Snuggler (www.headsnuggler.com) travel accessory

· Picky? Not me Mom! Cookbook with great lunch and snack ideas (www.karlaheintz.com)

· Bugalug hair accessories (www.bugalugbaby.com)

· 2 stainless steel Otterbottles for kids lunch bags (www.otterbottle.ca)

· A gift certificate from Little Soles for a new pair of shoes (http://www.littlesoles.ca/).

“At Beaners we want to ensure that both parent and child have the best haircut experience they can.” continues Bertie. “This back to school season kids will receive the trendiest hair cut in an environment that is fun, comfortable and exciting for kids and relaxing for parents while simultaneously bringing happiness to other children in different situations than their own.”
