Save Salons Destroyed By Riots

As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy, instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it."

This is what we are experiencing in our world today. We are living in a world that is overcome with violence and hate. "I can't breathe Sir" is what George Floyd said as the officer pinned him down. His cries for help were not being heard as the officer chose to ignore him, as the other officers standing by, chose to just stand by. George Floyd needed help, he needed someone to hear him.

As a result of this tragic injustice, a chain reaction struck. In the quest to seek justice for Floyd, injustices are being committed. People are losing their lives along with their homes, their jobs, their businesses and much, much more.

"Returning violence for violence  multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."- Martin Luther King, Jr.

So, lets spread the love. Let's make the conscious choice to listen, to hear those in need and to help.

In these riots, Salons were destroyed. Hardworking, innocent, law abiding citizens lost everything. This GoFundMe will be donated to Salons that were demolished, to help them rebuild and recover. 

If you own, work for, or know of a Salon that has faced destruction, please contact us.
