ELEVEN Australia have teamed up again with international charity Hagar to launch Style for Life Month, in the fight to end human trafficking and modern day slavery. Throughout the month of July 2019, $1 from every bottle of ELEVEN Australia Miracle Hair Treatment sold worldwide will go to the not-for profit organisation.
Since its inception in Australia in 2013, ELEVEN Australia have raised over USD$152K for Hagar through Style for Life, sponsoring countless women through their Economic Empowerment Program. Excitingly, 2019 marks the first year the initiative will be on a global scale.
Hagar is an international charity that works to restore the lives of women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse. With housing and education centres in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam, Hagar provides specialist trauma counselling, intensive education programs and career training opportunities such as hairdressing for people who would otherwise have had no chance of a future.
ELEVEN Australia is available in more than 25 countries across the globe. During Style for Life Month, every bottle of ELEVEN Australia’s hydrating leave-in lotion sold by participating salons will go towards 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.
“Having seen first-hand the positive impact the money raised from Style for Life Day has on these brave women and children makes me so proud of our industry and I couldn’t be more excited for the initiative to go global,” said Joey Scandizzo, ELEVEN Australia Co-Creative Director and two time Hair Expo Australian Hairdresser of the Year. “I can’t wait to see ELEVEN Australia salons around the world get behind Style for Life Month, every bottle of Miracle Hair Treatment can make a difference.”
To date hundreds of Australian salons have participated and raised money for the Style for Life charity. This year ELEVEN Australia and Hagar hope to further contribute by encouraging salons and customers across the globe to be part of the Style for Life Month.
