CC Announces Tornado Assistance Fund

EDITOR'S NOTE: In 2012, Cosmetologists Chicago raised and presented considerable funds to aid salon professionals and owners affected by Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast. Now this association of 5,000 that owns and produces America's Beauty Show, has established the Cosmetologists Chicago Tornado Assistance Fund to help salon pros in the Midwest.

What if your salon was destroyed just before the busy holiday season?  Unfortunately, that's what many of your salon peers face today in the aftermath of the tornados that devastated parts of the Midwest on Sunday, November 17th.  The heartbreaking destruction will continue to affect our friends and neighbors for months to come as they rebuild their homes and livelihoods.

 Let's work together to help salons in need. Cosmetologists Chicago and Cosmetologists Illinois have already reached out to identify salons and salon professionals in the worse hit areas. We will "adopt" as many as possible and provide funds to help them get back on their feet.

 Together, we can help our fellow professionals in the affected areas rebuild their lives and their salons. We will also provide them complimentary admission to America's Beauty Show in March to motivate and inspire them in their careers.

 Cosmetologists Chicago now has an online form on their website www.americasbeautyshow.com/contribute to make it easy to contribute using a credit card or, alternatively, you can contribute by sending a check or money order to the following address: Cosmetologists Chicago Tornado Assistance, 8286 Solutions Center, Chicago, IL 60677.
