So last Monday, Denise, Sara, and I went out to pass out what were originally supposed to be candy canes but were really little peppermints (I went to CVS and couldn't find the mini candy canes I was looking for...) to students studying for their exams in Langsam.
It was a huge success and it wasn't at the same time.
All of the students were so happy for the small, kind gesture. They're exhausted and stressed and a little peppermint cheered them up a little bit. So in that way, it was successful. On the other hand, no one registered to donate their hair...
But it accomplished our main goal which was to bring attention to the event.
In other news, Mitchell's Salon has agreed to provide stylists for our event! Possibly even exclusively... we'll know by January 18 (that's my birthday! that would be a great present) if enough stylists are interested in helping to allow for exclusive rights.
It was really very lucky that I even reached them. I sent in a message through their generic contact form on their website asking if they would be interested, and it got passed along to their marketing director who contacted me! So that was very exciting.
