Aveda Raises Funds for Adelante Bolivia
Last November, Aveda El Paseo partnered with non-profit Adelante Bolivia to host a community event that furthers Aveda’s support for global sustainability. Adelante Bolivia aims to help improve the lack of basic technology in Bolivia’s education system, and it currently supports two programs in Cochabamba and Tiguipaya. The mission for this local to global event was to raise funds for integrating technology and education among the disadvantaged and indigenous communities in Bolivia. Aveda provided various services including wellness rituals, hair and skin consults, and make up applications while the non-profit organization sold hand-woven quilts from Bolivian villages. They also had multiple raffles for pamper parties, rituals and gift certificates. All of these efforts raised a total of $5,000 for Adelante Bolivia.
