Salon LimeLight is on a mission to get to Guatemala! We will be traveling to Guatemala to support our friend Lauren Pupchick and the girls she teaches at Proximos Pasos School in Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala. As a team we will be going to cut and delouse all 150 of the student’s hair. This will consist of two full days of lice treatments, haircuts, and giving out vitamins.
We will be doing salon events September 23rd, October 14th, November 4th, December 2nd, and January 6th. On these days we will be doing haircuts, conditioning treatments, blow-dries, and our special Guatemalan Manicure! We are hosting “Auction 2 Guatemala”, a Chinese style auction that clients can participate in. We are looking for donations from local businesses to fund the auction. At any time you may also help us by making a monetary donation.
By donating to the GU2G your business will be seen by over 600 of our daily salon guest and our projected 200 event guest over the next six months. For your participation we will mention you in salon, on our website, and Facebook page. If you make a $100+ donation before September 23rd you will be listed as a Sponsor on our GU2G shirts, which will be worn leading up to our trip. If you interested in purchasing a t-shirt you may do so before the September 23rd order date at the cost of $10. Thank you for your support in Getting Us 2 Guatemala!
After visiting Guatemala for the first time in 1999, Lauren returned to serve full time in September of 2003. She works with both of Mission Impact's partner schools which are solely funded by donations. Escuela Vida and Proximos Pasos (Next Steps Girls School) offers education to girls who are denied the opportunity by the public schools in Santa Maria de Jesus. Their holistic approach to education covers the areas of academics, physical, emotional and spiritual health, family involvement and occupational training. Due to poor living conditions, and often having to sleep on dirt floors the girls are infested with lice. With your contribution our goal is to help these girls, their school, and community by providing the necessary services and delousing products.
We thank you for your time and consideration in helping us with our efforts if you are interested in making a donation feel free to contact us. More information about Mission Impact can be found at missionimpact.com
