STERLING, Ill. — Wahl, a manufacturer of men's grooming tools, announced Cuts for a Cause, a new program that will support the growing number of organizations and individuals who engage in charitable head-shaving and facial hair growing.
Cuts for a Cause aims to provide necessary tools and outreach for what is now a significant movement and one of the most popular fundraising activities of the past 10 years.
"It's an exciting time to launch the Wahl Cuts for a Cause program because in the last decade alone the popularity of head-shaving and facial hair growing events has increased significantly," Steve Yde, director of marketing for Wahl Clipper said. "These events demonstrate just how far people will go to raise money, which draws attention to worthwhile causes and brings communities together."
Grooming tools are proving to be powerful objects these days. Organizations like No-Shave November and Movember have raised more than $500 million for men's health.
"Shaving your head or growing a mustache or beard to support the cause--all are highly visible displays of support," Yde said. "When someone puts their head on the line, you can't help but feel inspired to join the cause and get behind them. That's why this style of fundraising has become so popular and why Cuts for a Cause exists."
