Please meet, Pinky Ponk, the Breast Cancer Donkey at Simon Clark Hairdressing. October is breast cancer month, so we thought we would do something completely different. As hairdressers and try to contribute outside of our field of expertise, so here goes.
Pinky Ponky’s Mission
Is to educate our clients, ladies of the need for regular checks to catch Breast Cancer early and improve the chances of beating it. To this end we recommend that you visit http://www.cansa.org.za/womens-health/ for a guide on what to check and look for. There is also now a free app, Keep a Breast that gives you a step by step guide on how to do a self exam. It also gives a monthly reminder to do it, http://keep-a-breast.org/keep-abreast-and-check-your-self-breast-cancer-mob .
How you can help bet breast cancer
To help us achieve our goal Pinky Ponky will be sending out 9 Breast Cancer messages over the course of the month. Each will be related to the self checks you can do at home. To help make sure we get the message out there we have an amazing prize which will be drawn from those that share the messages on Facebook, a R1000.00 Wella Oil Reflections hamper, containing a shampoo, conditioner, mask and oil. All you need to do is share the messages, each share is one entry in the draw.
Just for fun
We will also holding a “pin the bra” on Pinky Ponky in the salon. To enter all you need to do is pop into the salon and try. Entry is free and we have a bottle of Wella Oil Reflections Oil as prize for the person who gets closest to the breast and a big bottle of the oil as lucky draw prize for everyone who shares there attempts on Facebook. we hope you will all join us in supporting this wonderful cause.
