    OCTOBER SALES OF AVEDA’S LIMITED EDITION HAND CREME TO RAISE FUNDS FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH!

    Aveda™, is raising funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) with the launch of a limited edition Hand Relief in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.

    A rich hand creme that helps soften and smooth hands while diminishing the visible signs of aging, Hand Relief has remained an Aveda top seller since its launch in 1998. Hand Relief debuts in a new 150ml/5oz tube-a 20% increase in size-along with new, limited edition packaging, which features a signature Breast Cancer Awareness pink design and matching pink cap.

    During the month of October, $4 from the sale of each Hand Relief will be donated to Breast Cancer Research.  This year, Aveda’s fundraising goal has sky-rocketed to a total of $200,000-double that of last year’s goal – which can be reached if every limited edition pink-capped Hand Relief is sold. 

    “Our mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society.”  – Horst Rechelbacher, founder

    CREATIVE NAIL DESIGN’S LIMITED EDITION “SCENT” GENERATES CITY OF HOPE DONATIONS!

    Creative Nail Design adds Hope Heals, a limited edition scent, to its popular line of Creative Scentsations hand and body lotions. The delicate rose scented lotion moisturizes the skin with Vitamins A and E and Aloe Vera.   The fragrance was inspired by The Rose Garden at the California-based City of Hope, which has 52 varietals and is a much-appreciated sanctuary for patients undergoing treatment. 

    Creative Nail Design is donating $2.00 from every bottle sold to further City of Hope’s breast cancer research, treatment and education programs.  Hope Heals lotion is available from September 1, 2005 to October 31, 2005.

    Since 1998, Creative Nail Design has raised and contributed more than $2,000,000 for City of Hope through product sales, product donations to care centers, fundraising events, as well as cash donations.  Creative Nail Design created so much awareness of “the cause” among their national and global community of salons that many salons have carried on the fundraising tradition by sponsoring “Days of Hope” in which proceeds from salon services are also donated to City of Hope.  Some salons have raised as much as $15,000 in a single event.

    PROCEEDS FROM PRIVE CUT-A-THON ON OCTOBER 15TH TO BE DONATED FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH!

    To help further research and save the lives of women affected, celebrity stylist and founder of Privè products, Laurent Dufourg has organized an unprecedented event.  On October 15, 2005 from 8 am – 12 pm, select Privé salons across the nation will participate in a cut-a-thon and/or donate Privé Product gift baskets to a drawing to raise proceeds for The Expedition Inspiration Fund For Breast Cancer Research.

    “Breast cancer has touched everyone’s life at some point whether it be a friend or family member who has struggled with the disease.  So when my friend and client Téa Leoni first mentioned her affiliation with Expedition Inspiration, we created Privé Styling Brilliance to help raise money,” said Dufourg.  

    “Although a portion of proceeds go to research efforts, I still felt like there was something more that we could do and the cut-a-thon was the answer.”  It will take place on October 15, 2005 simultaneously with the Expedition Inspiration 10th Anniversary “Take-a-Hike” fundraiser in Los Angeles, CA.  To enter a drawing for a gift basket worth $175 in Privé products, visit a participating salon between October 1 and October 15.

    ZOTOS INTERNATIONAL RAISES $11,000 FOR THE NOEL FOUNDATION

    As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Zotos International organized their fourth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Week with the help of their Darien, Rosemont, Arcadia and Geneva offices. This week-long event benefited The NOEL Foundation, formed to support the financial needs of those suffering with breast cancer.

    The NOEL Foundation was founded in memory of beauty industry icon Noel de Caprio who fought to raise awareness and helped countless others while battling this illness herself for 15 years.

    A two-day cut-a-thon was held in the new Artistic Institute in Darien, with stylists, salon owners and guest artists giving their time and gratuities.  In addition, over 40 vendors donated gift items… and a national raffle organized. Even the corporate food service contributed by selling “pink” dessert items with proceeds donated to the Foundation.

    At the October 15th afternoon finale, President and CEO Robert Seidl presented a check for $11,005.00 to Peter de Caprio, spokesperson for the Foundation, husband of Noel and owner of the Noelle Spa for Beauty and Wellness in Stamford. The amount matched, to the penny, the previous year’s donation.
