The Power of a Haircut

The Power of a Haircut

   Isaias Lucy
   1 February 2019

 

On January 9th, 2019, nearly forty community members in Zacatecas were blessed with haircuts free of charge at their local CarePoint. As children returned to school after the holiday break, clean haircuts were required by the district. Oftentimes, with 4 or 5 children at home, the cost of haircuts can become overwhelming for families in the community.


With an atmosphere full of gratitude, many families learned about their local CarePoint for the first time. While this CarePoint provides sponsored children with love, care, and opportunities for development, it's providing so much more. The CarePoint serves as a vehicle for outreach and connection to families, businesses, and other community members. Throughout the event, the local barber and staff shared their enthusiasm about a continued partnership with Children’s Cup.


Sponsorship creates these moments. We’re thankful for the power of a haircut—blessed families, CarePoint introductions, and local partnerships. This is the power we have to come together to see Every Child a Whole Child.
