Barbara&Barbara battles corona closings





UPDATE::: Wow! We can't even believe all the love and support from you! We have decided to close our gofundme in order to redirect funds where it is needed most, the Black Lives Matter movement. If you need ideas or suggestions of organizations within BLM to support, check out our instagram stories and highlights. We are currently working on a way to donate within this community as well. 


Original Post:::To all our beautiful Barbara babe-ly clients; for the safety of our staff and all of you, we have decided to close and self-quarantine like the rest of most of ya! We did this when they announced a shut down for all restaurants and bars. Being a part of the service industry can be a tough gig sometimes. If we do not work, we do not get paid. There is no sick leave, no PTO, and, no 'work from home.' To shut down is the responsible thing for us to do, but it definitely hurts us financially. 

We have a staff of 16 to look after! If you are able to spare a few bucks to help tip out our staff during the closure, we would be forever grateful! Anything we raise from here will be pooled, divided equally, and go directly to our staff. We know you are all worried, and we are too. So if you can spare it, please and thank you!
