Every minute of every day a child is admitted to a hospital in Australia, and for thousands of these children and their families, this admission will change their lives forever. Starlight is there to brighten the lives of these seriously ill children, turning fear, pain and stress into joy, fun and laughter and now so are hairdressing salons around the country.
To celebrate and align with national Starlight Day, the ‘Salon Select Smiles for Starlight’ initiative will commence on Friday 5th May and continue for the entire month of May. During this time, La Unica Salon will be joining forces with more than 200 other hairdressing salons across the country to help raise $100,000 and grant life-changing Starlight Wishes to seriously ill children and their families in Australia. A Starlight Wish is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a seriously ill child and their family and is the gift of hope during the toughest of times.
Although this may seem like small change for some, La Unica Salon believes that as a community, we can work towards big change to replace pain, fear and loneliness with joy, fun and laughter for the Starlight kids.
To show your support for this national fundraising initiative, and help La Unica Salon give the gift of a smile, please contact La Unica Salon on (02) 9713 9010 to book in for an appointment during the month of May.
If you are not due for a cut or colour during the month of May, you can still show your support for the campaign by donating securely online at Salon Select Smiles For Starlight
