Hair Donation To Children’s Hospital

Derek Hair, Media, Salon 0 Comments

Hello! My name is Simran Singh and I’m currently 16 years old and in 11th grade. Growing up I have always had long hair. My parents did not allow me to cut my hair because they believed that your hair was your prize possession and should be always taken care of.

I always got tired of long hair and styling my long hair in a braid that one time I was small I cut my hair and I cut very short bangs for my younger sister, who is two years younger than me. My parents were not that mad because they knew we were kids and we make mistakes. But looking back I realize that I took my long hair for granted and did not realize that there are kids around the world who are not able to grow hair.

 In February 2008, I got the news that I have a baby cousin. I was so excited that I can go to her house and I can play with her due to the fact that all of our sibling’s and cousin’s were grown up. But my baby cousin who went by the nickname, Leena went through struggles. At a very young age she had to get her tumor removed from her head and after that had to go through a long process of chemotherapy. It’s been 4 years since her surgery and she has such thick hair and is full of giggles and laughs. Even though today she may not see the beautiful world with her precious  eyes due to what she went through, she is a very happy child and grateful for everything she has.

Leena has made me a better person today and encouraged me to do small things like donating my hair to BC Children’s Hospital. I asked Leena’s mom about me donating my hair and she said ” I encourage you to donate your hair, It’s a place where you should give a lot whenever you have a chance, I always will and continue to donate things there due to how much it has given back to me and my daughter “. Her making me say that made me feel that I will be donating my hair and that will be the final answer.

image1-1

My hair is currently 23 inches and I will be donating 10 inches of my hair. 

Most may think that I’m making a wrong decision for my hair and I should keep it long. Most of my friends and strangers that I walk past by in public have told me that I have the most thickest, silkiest and longest they have ever seen. That makes me really happy that my hair is in great condition to donate.

Although to many disagreeing with me cutting my hair I feel like that I should give back to the world with small changes because at the end those small changes will make a big change to the world. I am proud of myself for growing out my hair 23 inches since my last haircut which was one year ago and being in great condition for children that have gone through the similar process like Leena’s

Having a professional hair salon like Aru’s cutting and styling your hair for free to BC Children’s Hospital is a privilege to me that I do not have to worry about my hair getting shipped there or dropping it off there, where it is taken care of by Aru’s. I am very grateful for this opportunity and I know my hair is in great hands.

I am looking forward to cutting my hair due to this great program that Aru has provided for all of us. I have learned that it takes 10-15 ponytails to make one single wig. I was very shocked to hear that. This made my more eager to donate my hair. Having coming across Aru’s website made my feel that I came across this for a reason and that I will be donating my hair. I do not give anything else but my hair. This is all thanks to Aru Spa and Salon. 

Looking forward to my appointment for this amazing opportunity! 

Yours truly, 

Simran Singh

Your Kids And Their Teachers

Derek Newsletter, Salon, Spa 0 Comments

I just wanted to touch base with you to give you a quick idea and reminder.

Many of our clients have young families with kids coming to the end of their school year. In our family, our children’s teachers do such a great job of of guiding them and giving them the tools to grow. So, each year my wife and I show our appreciation to both teachers with Gift Cards to Aru.

You can tell by the appreciative look on their faces that their Gift Card (and future trip to the Spa) is both well needed but more importantly, we feel it’s well deserved!

If you have teachers like ours in your life and you are looking for a thoughtful gift to express your appreciation as the school year comes to an end, please stop by and pick up a Gift Card to Aru Spa.

If you are unable to make it to Aru in time, remember our Instant Gift Certificates are available online and can be printed at home or emailed to the recipient.

Instant Gift Certificates can be found here.
