We currently have a two prong approach to giving back.
It’s all about the idea that we want to Barber. For. Good.
Local. We think it’s important that we have a touchpoint in giving back to the communities in which we operate. Our current shop in Stillwater launched an initiative called “Barber for Good”. Each month we plan for Barbers to giveback through offering haircuts to the underserved and underprivileged in our community.
Global. We also think it’s important to try and leave a mark on the world. We do this through our BarberForGood Investment Fund. Through this fund we help make loans to Barbers in third world countries. These Barbers needs funds to grow their Barbershops, invest in supplies, or better serve their communities. To date we’ve funded over $3,275 in loans. You can read about each of them at the link below.
When you book a seat in our chairs you help put clients in theirs.”
We BarberForGood and celebrate others who do the same.
