We know that this may feel like a pretty challenging time, but we want you to know that we are in this together. We are navigating this new ground alongside you and we hope you are prioritizing your health and safety, as well as that of your loved ones and community.
We care deeply for our global community and we are all working hard to ensure that our care is expressed through actions that make a difference. We are caring for our team in Italy with extra safety measures for production and operations, and we are ready to support our salons and partners as this situation evolves.
We want to be as supportive as possible as we all figure out how to move through this together. Continue reaching out and connecting with us on social media, whether you would like to share words of encouragement, talk beauty + sustainability, or just want to chat.
We are here for you and #wecare.
As a member of the Professional Beauty Association (PBA), we couldn't think of a better way to show our solidarity and help strengthen our community than by supporting the PBA COVID-19 Relief Fund*. This fund is designed to help support licensed beauty professionals who are not able to work or are experiencing financial hardship due to the outbreak. We'll be donating a percentage of our sales, but you're welcome to donate as well: click here to learn more.
*The PBA COVID-19 Relief Fund is a program of the PBA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations made to PBA Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by U.S. law.
For several years, we have been donating 1% of our annual online sales to 1% For the Planet, an international organization whose members contribute to environmental causes. This year we are proud to donate our first quarter's funds to City Harvest. In New York City, home of our North American office, City Harvest is working overtime to serve the most vulnerable members of our community. Now through June 30th, donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $750,000. If you are looking for a way to help, please consider making an individual donation during this time when donations will be doubled and need continues to grow. Click here to learn more.
This is the name given to the hand sanitizing gels created by our Davines Italy family. We are so grateful to Davines Italy for working quickly to create and donate 110,000 of these hand sanitizing gels to communities and charities in Italy to support people in need. We are all especially thankful to the R & D and production teams who made this possible in such a short time and to all the colleagues who are bringing this to life from their homes while keeping us all connected.
