Great Clips 2015 Miracle Balloon Campaign

Great Clips Salons Uplift Children's Hospitals with Annual Miracle Balloon Campaign

October 08, 2015 // // MINNEAPOLIS – Every October, Great Clips salons launch their annual fundraising campaign for local children’s hospitals. Salons across the United States sell the iconic Children’s Miracle Network balloons to benefit their community’s hospitals. As a thank you, customers who visit participating salons receive $2 off a future haircut for each Miracle Balloon purchased.

In 2014, Great Clips salons raised over $845,000 to help the 17 million kids who are treated at 170 not-for-profit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year. The sizable donation is a sign of the commitment of Great Clips salons to work together and rally support within their local communities for the annual campaign.

“The success of the annual Miracle Balloon campaign is a true testament to the generosity of all the people associated with Great Clips,” said Terri Miller, vice president of marketing and communications for Great Clips. “From salon owner to Great Clips stylist to customer, each person plays a part in making this important contribution to support children and families who are facing difficult situations.”

Great Clips recognizes that with great success comes great responsibility. This attitude is central to the Great Deeds® program, which calls corporate staff, franchisees, and Great Clips stylists everywhere to give back to the communities where they live and work.

“We are thankful that so many Great Clips salons take the initiative to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Great Clips has earned a solid reputation as a very charitable company centered on the needs of their local community. Millions of children and their families have benefited from the contributions made by Great Clips and its generous customers over the past several years.”
