This year, we marked a fundraising milestone during Earth Month 2018: over $60 million raised cumulatively for environmental causes since 1999!
Focused on timely and critical environmental causes, this fundraising has helped conserve old growth forests, defended endangered species and since 2007, protected clean water at home and around the world through Aveda Light the Way candle sales. One hundred percent of proceeds from the candle support clean water projects for communities in dire need, and more than 1 million people around the world (since 2007) now have access to clean water through our partnership with Global Greengrants Fund! And through the fundraising and passion of the Aveda network, our local Earth Month partners are protecting clean water in the communities where Aveda professionals, students, employees and guests live and work.
$60 Million Thanks to You!
A special thank you goes out to the entire Aveda network of guests, salons, artists, students and stores whose passion and dedication to the Aveda mission made all of this possible.
Here’s just a few highlights of the many, fabulous events that contributed to this $60 million milestone:
In Canada, at the 2018 CREATIF Earth Month event, Aveda Artist Gabo Hernandez created breathtaking looks inspired by the Ring Tail Lemur of Madagascar, which is where WaterAid Canada directs funds. The event had over 300 attendees featuring 14 on-stage hair artists and raised $22,655 for clean water projects in Madagascar!
