Great Lengths South Africa, in conjunction with The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA), is once again running the Pink Hair Shows You Care campaign. For the month of October, all the profit from the sale of Pink hair strands will be donated to CANSA. Support this cause by wearing a pink strand in your hair, available from participating Great Lengths partner salons for R100 per strand.
Local celebrities who have given their time and support for this year’s Pink Hair Shows You Care Campaign include Nicole Flint, Cindy Nell Roberts, Pnina Fenster, and Chantal Rutter Dros. This is the sixth annual Pink Hair Shows You Care campaign, with last year’s campaign raising R75 000 for CANSA. The money raised is used by CANSA towards education and raising awareness about breast cancer, providing care and support programmes as well as offering clinical breast examinations at CANSA Care Centres countrywide.
The campaign originated when Great Lengths South Africa became aware of the staggering statistics of breast cancer is South Africa. According to CANSA’s website one in every 35 women in South Africa is affected by breast cancer. To show your support visit www.greatlengths.co.za for the closest participating salon.
