MARINELLO RAISES $22,500 IN SUPPORT OF HAITI EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
WHITTIER, CA - Marinello Schools of Beauty, the leading chain of beauty schools on the West Coast, raised over $22,500 on Saturday, January 16, in support of the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. Proceeds from all salon/spa service sales throughout Marinellos 41 campuses in Arizona, California, Oregon, Nevada, and Utah will be donated to the American Red Cross.
Students, faculty, and staff rallied to help increase Marinellos contribution to Haiti relief. Twitter, Facebook, and email campaigns helped pass the word about the fundraiser. As a result almost 1,500 guests got pampered in support of this important cause.
According to the American Red Cross, millions may have been affected by the devastating earthquake on January 12th. There have been major structural damages in government and hospital buildings reported. The Red Cross is providing much needed support in the form of food, water, relief supplies, field hospitals, emotional support, sanitation facilities and family linking services.
