CUT IT OUT in October

Domestic abuse affects thousands of people all over the world on a daily basis, but the sad truth is that only a fraction gains the courage to speak up and reach out for help.

The Professional Beauty Association’s (PBA) CUT IT OUT: Salons Against Domestic Abuse program wants to stop this nationwide epidemic. CUT IT OUT trains salon professionals to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse to safely and confidentially help clients, co-workers, friends and family find help through local resources.

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the PBA is asking salons and salon professionals around the country to “Give the Power Back” to victims of domestic abuse by holding a CUT IT OUT October Fundraising and Awareness Drive. The goal of this drive is to raise awareness and to help victims of this nationwide epidemic find the voice and courage to speak out and seek help.

PARTICIPATION IS SIMPLE!

Simply register at probeauty.org/endabuse to get your free toolkit, make your fundraising plans, and make your donations! Donations can be split between CUT IT OUT and a local shelter of your choice.
