Every year Paul Mitchell The School Cleveland partners with Bright Pink, which is a nonprofit organization that focuses on women’s health. The why behind the partnership between Paul Mitchell The School Cleveland and Bright Pink is because we want to help spread Bright Pink’s mission: “Help save lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering women to know their risk and manage their health proactively.” Here at Paul Mitchell The School Cleveland we have our own cancer survivor, Sandra Franklin. Sandra is our placement leader and is a part of our Enrollment Team. She has been in the beauty industry for over 40 years and in the middle was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Sandra is one of the strongest people we know and made a full recovery and still to this day is on a mission to help people find their true passion in the beauty industry. #PaulMitchellXBrightPink
How Can You help?
Join us this September and October to help spread awareness and raise funds to further Bright Pink’s mission for women’s health. Our goal in 2020 is to raise over $1,000 and to have 1,000 people complete the quiz on assessing your risk. We are going to achieve that by adding graphics to every station with the links to the quiz and donation pages, building a Bright Pink donation wall, share social media graphics on how and why you should be assessing your risk, selling Bright Pink shirts, encouraging Future Professionals (students) to wear pink and teal on Thursdays and Fridays for $2, and many other fun fundraising events! We encourage you to tag @pmtscleveland @bebrightpink and use the hashtag #PaulMitchellXBrightPink to share your story on why you want to help spread awareness for ovarian and breast cancer.
Assess Your Risk
The first step to helping is checking on yourself. Bright Pink offers a free quiz that you are able to take to assess your risk. Just text “PMAYR” to 59227. We challenge you to encourage your friends, family, and community to take this quiz and pass it on to help spread the awareness of women’s health. We have created a free Instagram Story graphic that you can add to your story and encourage others! You can also head over to our Instagram @pmtscleveland and check out more of our Bright Pink Stories under the “Bright Pink” highlight reel.
