In case you wondered what we do with all the products turned in through our Recycle Rewards Program http://verdesalon.com/specials/recycle-rewards-program/ we would like to share an email we received from a friend of Verde’s that helps us donate these products to a Cosmetology School in Sierra Leone in West Africa. These young women are eager to learn and don’t always have the supplies they need to aid their education. we are looking forward to getting more involved with these students as we firmly believe in education being pivotal in anyone’s future. We are so proud of our Lead Stylist Jenna Moore for making this connection and for wanting to make a difference in our world community who believes “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
Kevin and Jenna,
I just wanted to share some pictures with you of the girls from Fatima House of Light. We were able to support them financially for a full year of their schooling. The girls are given startup kits to aid in their studies. These are some pictures of the Cosmetology students. I will be posting more on Face Book as well.
Also, the supplies you donated should be reaching Sierra Leone any day now. We sent out a 40’ container in December, so the girls will be even more excited to see the wonderful donations made by your salon. I think it’s important to physically see the impact you’re making and realize how much of a difference you have truly made in helping these young girls succeed under such difficult circumstances.
Thanks again so very much for thinking of us!!
