On Sunday 27th July, we are inviting you to join the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community in our fight to end slavery with the annual Style for Life Day, in association with HAGAR and ELEVEN Australia.
Now in its second year, the national Style for Life event will see Murphy Gozzard open its salon doors on a Sunday to snip and style as many customers as it can sit in its chairs, with ALL proceeds from the day donated to not-for profit organisation, Hagar.
Hagar is an international charity that works to restore the lives of women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse including rape, pedophilia and modern slavery. With housing and education centres in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam, Hagar provides specialist trauma counseling, intensive education programs and career training opportunities for people who would otherwise have had no chance of a future.
By booking your next hair appointment at Murphy Gozzard on Sunday 27th July, you will be making a difference to the lives of people in need by supporting the funding, training and economic empowerment of vulnerable women and young people affected by human rights abuse.
Last year, the 12 participating salons involved in Style for Life Day raised a combined total of $21,000 for Hagar, a figure that supported over 40 survivors through the esteemed Hagar-lead Career Pathways program in Cambodia, which includes intensive work readiness training, ‘on the job’ vocational training in the hairdressing industry, employment placement and two years of follow up case management.
Appointments are still available at Murphy Gozzard hair salon in Paddington for Style for Life Day, so call the salon now on (02) 9360 2189 to be part of this extra special day.
For those of you unable to join the Murphy Gozzard team on Style for Life Day, we will be announcing shortly additional ways in which you can help support this cause, so watch this space!
