Now that we’ve packed away the pumpkins and turned back the clocks, the highly anticipated holiday season can officially begin. It’s no secret that December is all about giving, and while it’s easy to get wrapped up in expensive gifts to impress your loved ones, it’s important to remember that this season is also about giving to those who need it most. That’s why every year, we host our Coats for Kids charity event, and this year is no exception.
Now in its sixth year, we’re switching things up and inviting everyone to join us on Friday, December 2nd from 4-8pm. We’ll be serving complimentary wine and delicious eats, perfect to pregame before your next Holiday party! All you have to do is bring coats, toys, and/or monetary donations that will go directly to children in our community.
coats for kids
Coats for Kids is a United Way initiative that began in 1992 due to overwhelming requests from families who were in need of winter jackets. As our city’s real estate has reached all-time highs, many families have a difficult time affording living expenses and simply don’t have the means to purchase the clothing needed to stay warm. That’s why we host this event every year, as a simple coat can go a long way in a child’s development.

You know that feeling after you’ve done a good deed?
Whether it’s paying someone a compliment, helping out with a favour, or donating to a charity, there’s nothing quite like giving back to those in need.  If you follow Urban Body Laser on Twitter and Facebook, you may have noticed that we care a lot about helping out others through fundraisers, events, and donations. We think giving back is the key to living a healthy, happy, and wholesome life.
That’s why we weren’t surprised when one our medical estheticians, Channa, chopped off her long, luscious locks and donated them to The Box Cancer Society

She’s still just as gorgeous with or without long hair, wouldn’t you agree!?


 
That’s not the only charitable deed our staff is apart of. You may have heard that they’ve stripped down to raise funds for the 2013/2014 Urban Body Laser Charity Calendars.

The Urban Body Laser: In the Buff!

All proceeds go to an incredible organization: Look Good Feel Better, a non-government funded charity that helps women who are going through or have gone through chemotherapy treatments to ‘look good and feel better’. This is Canada’s only charity dedicated to empowering women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatments have on their appearance.
There are still some calendars available! The Urban Body Laser calendar girls can be all yours for just $20 each, with 100% of the proceeds are going towards the LGFB workshops. If you are unable make it into our office we will gladly mail them to you, just contact us by email or phone.
