Support Cuts for a Cause at Hair Tales

On Sunday June 28, 2009, a Sydney hair salon will host a fundraising event for maternal and child health projects supported by Mercy Works Inc. in Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste. Find out how you can support CUTS FOR A CAUSE.

Did you know?
This year around the world 500,000 mothers and over 9 million children under five will die from preventable causes. Australia’s nearest neighbours – Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste – have disturbingly high rates of maternal and infant mortality.

But you can help…
Poppy and Julie of Hair Tales in Newtown will host a special fundraising event on Sunday June 28, 2009. Between 10:00am and 4:00pm all hair cuts will be $30 (cash-only).

Women, men and children are all welcome. Appointments can be made but are not necessary.

All proceeds will go to maternal and child health projects in Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste supported by Mercy Works Inc.

Mercy Works Inc. is the relief and development agency of the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia.

If you can’t attend the even, perhaps you’d like to make a donation.
