December 05th, 2014 was the 1st international Education for Life donation day!
A few days ago was launched and celebrated the first international Education for Life donation day. The idea was to have the participating hairdressers all over the world donate at least 10% of their day's takings for the Intercoiffure charity project.
These funds help finance our training centers and are also much needed in case of natural catastrophes involving kids.
As a support for this, each member eager to participate in this charity day was invited to download and translate in his/her language a small poster for his/her salon on www.education-for-life.com and advertise in the salons about this charity action.
This year, the much committed Brazilian Section celebrated the 7th edition of "Beleza do Bem" donation day in favor of Education for Life in the Intercoiffure Brazilian salons. They created a WhatsApp group to widely spread information and images about this great charity event all around the world. Hundreds of messages and photos were instantly diffused worldwide to share this operation and invite others to do the same. A very warm THANK YOU to our Brazilian friends for their contagious enthusiasm and kind-heartedness!
It is a little bit early to know by now the amount of donations collected on that day, but we are pretty confident of its success!
Education for Life is already very thankful for the 1st donation of € 1,500 received from M. Patrick Alès from Intercoiffure France in the frame of this EFL donation day! Thank you also to the Intercoiffure Hair by Hahn team from Germany that also donated € 1,500!
We are very proud of all the generous donors throughout the world and extremely thankful!
Jens Dagné at Christel House, Cape Town, SA
In November Jens Dagné, Chairman of the EFL Committee, flew to Cape Town to pay a visit to Christel House, the Education for Life school in South Africa. He was very touched and impressed by the motivated teams and kids.
The involvement of Rolf Losken, Jean Witte and Ezra Isaacs and their local teams is huge and we sincerely wish to thank them very much for their active and benevolent participation in the development of this hairdressing school for disadvantaged kids. Thank you all also for communicating on a regular basis about the school and for sending so many photos showing the steps forward!
Mark your calendars
In January, Education for Life will have its own website where all information will be gathered and where one will be able to make donations through Paypal!
Also in January, the new Education for Life flyer mentioned in Paris in September will be available!
Thank you all for your generous donations!
