As absolutely tragic as the effects of the earthquake that rocked Haiti have been, it's equally inspiring to see so many people from all over the world leap into action to help in whatever way they can. As an average, 20-something woman living in the Twin Cities, I watch the coverage of Haiti's devastation on my nightly news; I feel helpless as images of people who are hurt and suffering flash across my TV screen. And because I do feel helpless, I'm so grateful to those people who are stepping up, reaching out, and using their own resources to help make a difference - and help all the rest of us contribute, too.
Case in point: Hana Salon & Misikko. With every Hana hair styling tool purchased from Misikko between January 20th and February 3rd, Hana's CEO will include in the order a blank check for $25 & a stamped envelope. Hana Salon was moved to help its customers make donations to the charity of their choice because of the urgent, immediate need in Haiti.
Obviously, they hope their customers will choose to send their $25 to one of the many charities working to relieve the people of Haiti. But they put no limitations on where the $25 goes - if you order a Hana product, you really will receive a blank $25 check. Send it to a local charity. Give it to someone in your neighborhood who's fallen on hard times. Do good in the world around you.
My friends at Misikko, whom I've written about pretty extensively, brought this very special offer to my attention. You can feel confident in ordering Hana flat irons from Misikko; they're a company that I personally recommend because of their reliable customer service and fantastic prices on premiere styling tools. I use a Hana flat iron almost every day and can vouch for the quality and durability of this product.
So if you've been on the fence about upgrading your flat iron, now is the time to do it. Support two companies that' are supporting the world around us. In the face of loss and devastation, it's important for all of us to work together to put the pieces back together.
