Help Your Fellow Beauty Industry Professionals in Need!

One of the best things about our industry is how inclusive it is. Beauty and the beauty industry crosses all boundaries, and our professionals look after each other. Each year, natural disasters impact the lives of our Professional friends across the country, and 2018 is no different.

Salon Professionals across the US have been severely impacted after Hurricane Florence and Michael this year, and the PBA Disaster Relief Fund is desperately in need of donations to assist them in their time of need. 



The PBA Disaster Relief Fund was established in 1955 to assist salon professionals with quick cash for short-term needs after disaster strikes. It is a program of the PBA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, and all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. 100% of funds donated go directly to salon and beauty industry professionals.

There are 3 easy ways to donate and help a professional in their time of need!

        Disaster Relief for Spas, Salons, and Beauty Professionals in the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

        Hello friends! I am so glad you are here to join me. What a week it has been! I hope this post finds you safe, warm, and well. On behalf of Pure Spa Direct, I would like to send out positive thoughts and prayers to the millions of people affected by Hurricane Sandy.

        Here at our Pure Spa Direct headquarters, we were very lucky to sustain no damage to our building, and just a brief power outage. All of our employees are safe, albeit most without power. We were some of the lucky ones. The devastation across so much of the East Coast is almost beyond comprehension. This aptly nicknamed "Frankenstorm," according to Wikipedia, has caused at least $50 billion worth of damage, has affected 20 states, and left millions without power.

        For a small business owner, the aftermath of a natural disaster of this magnitude can be crippling. The good news is that for the beauty industry, there is unique assistance available. Since 1955, the National Cosmetology Association's Disaster Relief Fund has assisted salons and spas rebuild following the devastation of a natural disaster. All donations made to the NCA Disaster Fund are tax deductible as charity contributions and 100% of all funds raised go directly to beauty industry professionals in need.
