Last March, we selected Alex’s Army Childhood Cancer Foundation as our March Community Outreach Partner. We shared with you the amazing grit this kiddo had since being diagnosed at age 5 with a Stage IV Wilms Tumor. On June 5th, 2016, we learned the heartbreaking news that Alex had passed after his 7 year battle with cancer. A part of us thinks he was beckoned to heaven by sweet Kate Rhoades for her 5th heavenly birthday so the two could be free, to bask in the glory of our creator — perfectly healed and perfectly whole. Hearing of Alex’s passing was a fierce kick in the gut, learning yet another precious child had lost their battle to the number one disease killer of children — one that is grossly underfunded in research and largely ignored by drug companies.
We love the mission of Alex’s Army Childhood Cancer Foundation and wanted to select them once again to be our Community Outreach Partner. The mission of AACCF is to raise awareness and funding for Childhood Cancer Research while providing Christian focused support to the Childhood Cancer Community. They do this through funding research for The Children’s Oncology Group, raising awareness at events such as Cure Fest, rallies and other events, and through their Prayer Pillowcase Project — handmade pillowcases embroidered with a bible verse that have been prayed over by those who make them.
This July, we are donating $1 from every haircut to this unique, local non-profit. We would love to ask for your help, too! We are collecting fabric for AACCF to donate toward their Prayer Pillowcase Project. Please bring 1 yard pieces of a 100% cotton or a soft cotton blend to our Fairfax or Dulles locations this July.
We’ll also be practicing our push ups in the hopes we can once again join AACCF in trying to beat the Guinness World Record for the most people performing push ups at once. On April 8th, 2017, we attended the 1st attempt which had 1,108 people out of the needed 1,645 people to break the record! Why push ups? Hear the beautiful story shared by Jenni Green, Alex’s mom, on WGTS:
The week of July 5th – 15th, book a 50 Minute Signature Facial for just $50! And, enjoy our amazing bikini wax the entire month for just $30! Call us at 703.273.7878 to schedule.
Note: Facials are only offered at our Dulles Landing location. Signature Facial promotion valid July 5-15, 2017 at our Dulles Landing Location. Bikini wax promotion valid July 2017 at both locations.
Ashley Renee Thompson lost her life in a singular vehicular accident on June 10, 2003 — she was just sixteen years old. She was an advanced placement student, a competitive gymnast, and loved by her friends and peers. Her mother created The ART of Driving in memory of her daughter to increase awareness among teens and parents of the unique risks faced by young, novice drivers and to impress upon them the need for improved training, increased supervised time behind-the-wheel, and increased parental involvement. The ART of Driving is also advocating for improvements in driver education for our youth and seeks to change the mindset of teens and their parents that tragedies like this “won’t happen to me”.
Teen crash and fatality statistics are absolutely sobering:
- 48% of all teen driving fatalities were single vehicle crashes.
- Alcohol and drugs are NOT major causes for these fatalities – representing only 20%.
- Inexperience and distractions are the leading cause of teen driving fatalities, particularly for 16 and 17-year-olds.
- 54% of all teen passenger deaths occurred when another teen was driving.
- The teen brain has not fully developed until the mid 20’s. They are susceptible to distractions, risk taking behaviors, and a limited capacity to multi-task.
- 80% of crashes involve some form of driver inattention within three seconds before the crash.
- The majority of teen auto fatalities occur on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Most of those deaths occurred between 9 p.m. and midnight.
- 16 to 18-year-olds have the highest crash rate of any other age group.
So what can you do as a parent, grandparent, Godparent, Uncle, Aunt, friend to help save a child’s life? The Art of Driving has various resources to help. They can assist with starting a Teen Task Force at school or in a youth club or group. They will come speak at PTSA, Teen Night, Driver’s Education classes, SGA or any other interested group to help educate and enable our local youth to be more responsible and aware drivers.
We have once again partnered with The Art of Driving to raise money and awareness for this wonderful, local non-profit. We will be donating $1 from every haircut this May to The Art of Driving. There are a few ways you can help out as well:
- Register for the 3rd Annual Survive the 5 (with both 5k and 10k race options) to help raise awareness and support The Art of Driving educational programs and their scholarship fund.
- Have your child(ren) sign The Art of Driving Pledge.
- Purchase a copy of How the Firefly Got Its Name, written by Ashley when she was just twelve. (If your kids are too old for this book consider a purchase to donate to your local school library).
We love supporting local! This year, we wanted to offer something really unique for Mother’s Day at the same time helping to promote another local, small business! After a little research, we found Bee’s Wing Farm and fell in love with their mission and business!
Bee’s Wing Farm is a small flower farm nestled at the foot of Buck Mountain in Bluemont, Virginia. They grow over 40 varieties of flowers, berries, and herbs and with those blossoms, berries, and foliage, create seasonally unique floral designs for weddings, special events, and even their own flower CSA!
Bee’s Wing flowers are gently grown and, in effort to care and respect the land, they do not use any synthetic pesticides or herbicides. They understand that the soil is the soul of their farm and care for it through cover cropping, compost and integrating their livestock and cropping systems.

We were reading a recent Kevin Murphy blog post about one Angelica Root Extract, which is used in the aptly named Angel Rinse. We #lovekm and wanted to share some of the fun facts about this ancient and beneficial ingredient with our SK Enthusiasts!
Angelica, also known as Garden Angelica, Archangel, Root of the Holy Ghost and The Angel’s Herb, contains a plethora of rich vitamins and minerals such as B12, Iron, and Thiamin, among others. It’s believed that Angelica is a native plant of Syria and several cooler European and Asian climates, but it is also occasionally found in cold, moist climates such as Scotland, Lapland and Iceland. Angelica Root has many medicinal qualities and has been a respected herb for thousands of years. Angelica Root received it’s name as it blooms around the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel, and as such, is often planted in monasteries.
The blend of Angelica Root Extract along with Mango Seed Butter, Cocoa Butter and Tangerine Peel Oil create a weightless conditioner that not only nourishes your scalp, but feeds your hair with amazing, non GMO goodness.
Every day the unthinkable happens … a car accident, a fall, a stroke. For thousands of children and adults in our community who have sustained a brain injury, stroke, or concussion, navigating a way forward after these kinds of traumatic events can be challenging. Brain Injury Services is there to help and has taken a leadership role in developing community based services specifically for residents across Northern Virginia, Fredericksburg, and the surrounding counties who have sustained brain injuries. Each year, Brain Injury Services assists over 600 individuals and families to help build the skills and confidence they need to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
We encourage you to take five minutes to watch this video where you can meet and hear from our local neighbors who have been blessed by service from Brain Injury Services.
Our philosophy is simple: No two people are alike. And, since the brain defines each of us, controls how we think, move, act, and feel, no two brain injuries are alike. Brain Injury Services designs a plan based on the needs and goals of each individual. Whether it is finding Sherida a secure place to live or helping Katy’s family find their new normal, Brain Injury Services strives to help all of our clients achieve their best life and dream the impossible.
