Special Surprise for John Paul and Sister Bonnieby Paul Mitchell Schools on 7/30/2007
As a special surprise for John Paul DeJoria, Paul Mitchell Future Professionals across the country held one-day fundraisers for Food 4 Africa, an organization that supplies children with at least one vitamin- and mineral-enriched meal every day. Winn Claybaugh presented the $42,000 donation to John Paul at Signature Gathering 2007.
"This will feed for one year 3,000 children ages zero to 12," John Paul said. "This is beyond awesome. You've probably saved the lives and brains of another 3,000 children." John Paul and Angus Mitchell were so moved by the Future Professionals' efforts that they added personal donations, bringing the total to an even $50,000.

Winn also presented $30,000 from the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation to Sister Bonnie Steinlage, whose Franciscan Haircuts from the Heart organization provides professional hair care to those in need. John Paul added to the excitement by giving Sister Bonnie a truck and the means to transport it to Cincinnati.
