Aveda Artists Pay it Forward with #BeautyHeals

And by sharing stories of volunteerism and activism within their network, they have the opportunity to set off a ripple effect—inspiring others to give back, too.

With this chain reaction in mind, they developed #BeautyHeals, an evergreen program that honors and shares the stories of Aveda Artists’ philanthropic local community initiatives. Through #BeautyHeals, they encourage their Artists around the globe to find causes near and dear to Aveda’s mission of caring for the world we live in, and they give them the tools they need to share their stories effectively. Aveda do this because they know that the benefits of volunteering – for the volunteer and those they support – can heal the spirit, and inspire others to take action.

Aveda Artist Stephen Pace, of Gary Manuel Salon, who since 2005 has raised more than $150,000 for Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, urges people to “look at your own community and find what needs to be taken care of.”
