Here at Coiffeteria, we love to give. We give to our guests every day and we also like to give back to our community. Our favorite way to give back is during Earth Month.

We do this because it fits with our mission as an Aveda salon:

All that said, we have some wonderful things going on this month to raise funds for the Alliance for the Great Lakes. This organization’s mission is to conserve and restore the Great Lakes, the world’s largest freshwater resource. We use the water from the Great Lakes every day, which is why this cause is so important to us.

Here are some of the ways you can help us give back:

Flower Crowns (on-going): These are hand-made by our very own stylist, Lori and we are asking a $10+ cash donation, all of which goes to the Alliance for the Great Lakes

Silent Auction (on-going): Several of our staff have created gift baskets full of their favorite products and
services. You can bid on these at the salon through the whole month.

Aveda Light the Way Candles (on-going): One $12 candle will bring clean water to a family of six for six months in
India through Global Greengrants Fund. The candle has a sweet, spicy scent this year with organic ginger and
ginger lily from India. Mmmmm…

Yoga for the Earth at Seva Yoga in Gaslight Village (Friday, April 22 @5:30pm): Donation yoga class with sipping
and shopping before and after. All class proceeds and a percentage of sales will go to the Alliance for the Great
Lakes.

Sunday Social with Stacy at Lululemon Grand Rapids (Sunday, April 24 @11am): Donation yoga class including a short
session on water sustainability with our very own Marielle Shuster!

The Walk for Water (Sunday, May 15 @ 11am): This 4 mile walk around East Grand Rapids is a great way to raise
awareness and funds for the Alliance for the Great Lakes. If you are unable to attend this event, you can make a
pledge for any amount with our receptionists. These donations are tax-deductable.

Wow- we sure have a lot going on in the next few months. We hope you can help us help others by giving to one of these causes or attending an event with us!
