Great Clips Salons Selling Miracle Balloons


Great Clips Salons Sell Miracle Balloons to Benefit Children's Miracle Network

MINNEAPOLIS – Oct. 1, 2012 – Every October, Great Clips salons from coast to coast work together to help local children’s hospitals by selling Children’s Miracle Network Hospital balloons. At participating salons, customers receive $2 off a future haircut for each $1 balloon icon purchased. All of the funds raised go directly to the market’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to provide things like life-saving treatment, medical supplies, research and charitable care.


"Great Clips has a strong belief in giving back to the communities where we live and operate, raising nearly $2 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since the inception of the miracle balloon campaign in 2005," said Terri Miller, vice president of marketing and communications for Great Clips. “The generosity of all the people associated with Great Clips, either as an owner, stylist or customer help make this campaign a success."


“We are thrilled that so many Great Clips salons take the initiative to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each October,” said George Mathis, director corporate partnerships for CMN Hospitals. “Great Clips has earned a solid reputation as a very charitable company centered on the needs of their local community. We're happy our hospitals, and the kids they serve, have been beneficiaries of their employees’ enthusiasm and customers’ generosity for the past seven years.”
