Savvy Sacramento salons are donating the proceeds from July 17th to the highly impactful not-for-profit, which is a division of Hattori Hanzo – manufacturers of the finest Japanese shears in the world. The Trade teaches former victims in developing countries how to cut and style hair as a new way to support themselves and their families, simultaneously building self worth in order to break the cycle for future generations.
Company and organization founders, Chris McCarley and Jonathan Klein, are committed to ending child prostitution and human trafficking, and to transforming the lives of the program's participants. "By teaching women the hair cutting trade, we are creating micro-economies in these communities in order to create lasting change. We're not in the business of giving a handout, but a hand up," explains McCarley.
Additionally, Hattori Hanzo recycles beauty supplies through an exchange program with clients to give students the necessary tools of...The Trade.
