Dosha/Aveda Earth Month Coming!

April is Earth Month. Dosha Salon Spa and the Aveda Institute in the Portland/Vancouver area are busy getting ready for their big fundraising—now in the third year—to support the Hopkins Demonstration Forest in Beavercreek.

The 2018 fundraising goal is $30,000.

“This is a big goal for us,” said Kimberly Johnson, Chief Operating Officer for Dosha and Aveda—and, a new Board Member at Forests Forever, Inc. “Our teams started raising monies to support various environmental organizations over the past 10 years. Amazingly tallying over $100,000! This year, we have designed many events to participate and donate in. If you are unable to attend these events, I encourage you to visit any of our websites and donate directly. We are thankful to our community working side by side to reach this large goal!”

About 150 staff and students from Dosha Salon Spas and the Aveda Institute made their annual visit to the Hopkins Demonstration Forest in late February to learn about the plan for the Earth Month activities and to do community service projects helping care in the forest. This year’s projects included trail maintenance—while first-time participants at Hopkins toured the property to learn about sustainable forest management.

So, here’s how we can all get involved to support the Dosha/Aveda Earth Month fundraising activities—while supporting Hopkins, too.

  • Schedule your next cut, color, or facial at the Service-A-Thon on Tuesday, April 17. This is open to all by reservation at the Aveda Institute locations in Portland and Vancouver. Call: 503.294.6000
  • Attend the Evening for Earth soiree, Thursday, April 26 at the Aveda Institute in the Pearl District—a big fashion show featuring hair cutting and styling demonstrations.
  • And, something new and local…check out 12 Bridges Cider House (behind Lil’ Cooperstown Grill in Oregon City) for their fundraising promotion supporting Dosha/Aveda and Hopkins.
