Protecting the poor from violence in the developing world …

We just love the simplicity of the mission statement of International Justice Mission: We are a global organization that protects the poor from violence in the developing world.

Typically, when we think of helping the poor, the first thing that comes to mind is food and shelter. These are clearly needed and it’s a blessing that people come forward to help with the most basic of needs. However, the poor are often neglected when it comes to justice. They are stepped on, forgotten, abused and left without defense. That’s where the International Justice Mission steps in. Their global team includes hundreds of lawyers, investigators, social workers, community activists and other professionals at work in nearly 20 communities.

Their work includes rescuing victims, bringing criminals to justice, giving victims the support and tools they need to heal and thrive, and strengthening justice systems by stopping violence before it starts.

Did you know that 32 million people are enslaved worldwide? And that 1 out of 5 women is a victim of rape or attempted rape? And that 5 million people are chased from their homes every day?

We encourage you to learn more about IJM by visiting their website or watching this short video on Suhana’s story.

This April, we will be donating $1 from every haircut to this very important organization doing amazing work around the world to help bring justice to the poor.

Remembering Barb Jelinek

On March 1st, a longtime client and dear friend to Salon Khouri passed away at just 62 years young after a courageous battle with cancer.

Barb had the most wonderful and magnetic personality — her sweet smile immediately drew you in. Barb was an amazing ‘Gammie’ to her grandchildren and, if you met her children and husband, you would instantly know what an incredible mother and wife she was as well. Barb was extremely athletic and could probably out-run and out-cycle most twenty year olds!

Barb had previously battled breast cancer and won that fight. When we were told she was diagnosed with cancer again, we were simply devastated. Her cancer this fight started in the kidneys and quickly spread throughout her body. Barb fought with every ounce of her might, which, if you knew Barb, was tremendous might. She will be missed greatly by us, her tremendous network of friends, her family, and husband of thirty eight loving years.

We invite you to leave a few words of kindness for her family and we will be sure to share it with Steven and their children.

In memory of Barb, we are donating $1 from every haircut this March to the Georgetown-Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center Kidney Cancer Research Fund.

It’s February – a time to focus on love, right? Hearts are everywhere in celebration Valentine’s Day, so we totally get why the American Heart Association chose February as the month to talk about women’s heart disease. Did you know that one in three women die of heart disease and stroke? It is the number one killer of women. But, the good news is, there are simple things you can do each day to prevent becomeing a part of these statistics! Visit http://www.GoRedForWomen.org and sign up for their heart tips. They will share little tricks that will make a world of difference, such as replacing your office chair with an exercise ball, or one of our personal favorites, calling an old friend to chat to reduce stress!

This February, we are once again supporting the Go Red for Women Scholarship Fund through the American Heart Association by donating $1 from every haircut to the Go Red for Women Scholarship Fund. We love supporting women looking to move mountains in the world of health! We are certain that one of these gals will make a difference in the lives of many, through their care and service to others.
