Fighting Cancer with Pink Hair Extensions
On April19, 2010, the Oak Forest High School Badminton Team, the John Amico School of Hair Design and SOCAP USA Hair Extension offered a way to join in the fight against cancer. Students from the John Amico School of Hair Design applied pink extensions to the students of Oak Forest High School for a $5 donation. The group raised nearly $1,000 in T-Shirt sales and pink hair extensions. The money raised was donated to Relay for Life by the American Cancer Society.
"Wearing a pink hair extension is an innovative way to show your support for such a wonderful and serious cause," said John Amico Sr., founder of the John Amico School of Hair Design. John also states, "These colorful hair extensions are a great way to celebrate the life of a loved one lost to cancer while helping to fight back by raising much-needed funds. Two are better than one, and they are a lot of fun to wear. The More You Wear, the More You Care." SOCAP USA donated the extensions for the event and are a dedicated supporter for the fight against cancer.
