We’ve all been hearing about the BP oil spill in the news lately, and I think the one thing we can all agree on is that it is a global tragedy that we all which we all need to become involved. I’d prefer to leave all of the finger-pointing and arguing to people who like to do that sort of thing. I am a doer. I like to be the one who rolls up his sleeves and says “OK, it happened, how do we fix it. Seems to me that I learned in school that oil was old dinosaurs, so actually it’s the dinosaurs we should be blaming for this mess. Stupid Tyrannosaurus Rexes.
So here’s what we can do: We can cut our hair and donate it to causes like Matter of Trust. I have not received any contact or endorsement from these people, although since we sell a hair trimmer that neatly stores hair, people like this should be knocking on my door (hint, hint). I’m sure that many of these groups have their hands full trying to manage funding, find volunteers, and create “hair booms” which use hair clippings to soak up oil, as we all know that hair absorbs oil. With the AirCut, donating your hair becomes quick and as easy as “wash, clip, and ship”. You get a great haircut and you help clean up the oil spill. You are awesome.
I also strongly encourage men and women with very long hair to donate their hair to causes like Locks of Love. Locks of love donates hairpieces to financially deprived children who have Cancer and have lost their hair. If you follow me on Twitter, you will see that I tweet a lot about Locks of Love events because I believe so strongly in it. It makes children feel normal again and restores their self-confidence. When you’re a kid, that’s like restoring your life! Kids already feel different enough, losing their hair makes it worse, so I am in favor of anyone that helps that cause happen. Unfortunately, the AirCut cuts hair too fine to be used for Locks of Love, but it can’t always be about us, can it? We love sales as much as anyone, but if we don’t also support the greater good, we miss the point of being part of humanity.
