Countless lives in Ukraine are being torn apart by violence. There is massive and widespread displacement, trauma, injuries, and separation from loved ones. All of which is having devastating consequences on its people.
It’s heart aching to see the videos and to read the accounts of what the ordinary people of Ukraine are going through. People just like us – mothers, fathers, grandparents, teenagers, children, babies. With the ring-side view that social media presents us, there is no escaping the cruel reality of what is happening.
Thankfully the Red Cross has teams on the ground in Ukraine. There is much for them to do as they help those affected to get badly needed supplies of food, medicine, shelter, and water. The Red Cross also help support health facilities and supply families with lifesaving and hygiene items.
We are not helpless bystanders, we can help.
HABIC is reaching out to you today to seek your help as we come together as an industry to raise funds for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal. These funds will support the Red Cross in their efforts to get what is so badly needed directly to the people of Ukraine.
We are asking salons nationwide to organise a fundraiser in your salon over the coming days. It can be as simple as a ‘bucket’ collection at your reception desk, or a contribution of tips, or a portion of sales on a particular day.
Show of solidarity and support.
On the 19th of March, as a show of solidarity we urge industry professionals to attend work draped in the Ukrainian colours.
Whatever you decide to do, we have created some support materials for you to promote your fundraising event. Click here to access and download these resources.
- Poster 1 – with room for you to include details of your fundraiser.
- Poster 2 – can be placed around the salon and on windows, or on collection buckets.
- Social media slides for Instagram & a Facebook post.
- Story post – again with space for you to include the name of your salon and details of your fundraising event.
- Ribbons – we have created a Ukraine ribbon for you to print out and pin to your uniform.
As funds are required urgently, we ask that you complete your fundraising by Monday 21st March and send all funds raised to this link: https://gofundme.com/f/habic-fundraiser-for-ukranian-people
We thank you in advance for your suport.
