Each year in April, to celebrate Earth month, AVEDA’s network joins together to raise funds for WATERCAN, a Canadian Charity, that builds wells to provide clean drinking water to Eastern Africa. This year we held our 2nd annual cut-a-thon, held a raffle for 3 free haircuts, and received donations from local business owners.
We were able to raise just over $3000.
Each $25 raised is able to provide clean drinking water for a child for one year! It is estimated that nearly one billion people world wide do not have access to clean drinking water and that the average walking distance to get access to even unclean water is 5 km!
