Invention room hair salon helps one strand at a time

November 27, 2012

The Invention Room Hair Salon has been doing "Get Pinked" for three years and each year is a bigger success. "We PINKED 1000 strands of hair this year and we decided to keep a good portion of the donations local," Robin Tingue , owner of the Invention Room, said. "We split the donations three ways; the Susan G. Komen foundation, Circle of Love and the RO Foundation. I feel all three organizations grow the awareness for breast cancer but each helps in such different ways. One for research, one that helps with the needs of which breast cancer creates, the RO Foundation that helps with the everyday expenses that are the real obstacle in trying to battle any unfortunate situation. We as a salon and local business hear too often the heartbreak that happens and it touches us too much. I do feel that if you are in business you have to give back as often as you can, that is the other "job."
