Remember last year I heavily promote AVEDA Walk For Water, a meaningful campaign to help raise awareness towards providing clean water to communities in need? And this annual fundraising activity dedicated to clean water-related causes is back!
Last year Aveda global network in more than 30 countries passionately pursued their goal of protecting and preserving clean water for everyone, everywhere by organizing thousands of events to raise a total of US$5.5 million for clean water. Not only that. Aveda also set a Guinness World Record for the Most Money Raised for Charity through Haircuts in a 24 Hour Period during the Global Cut-A-Thon. Meanwhile in Malaysia, we are having our second Walk for Water event in support of EcoKnight’s H2O Project (Help to Offer Safe Drinking Water to Mantanani) on the island of Mantanani (Sabah) where the funds raised will assist in delivering safe and clean drinking water to some 1,200 villagers on the island. You can read all about this meaningful cause at http://ecoknights.org.my/avedawalkforwater.html

It’s actually quite fun and you get to sweat along the way too. Last year there’s water and bananas for breakfast provided before the walk. Then we have a group warm up session, which is nice and calming to see everyone from different age, ethnic, race, profession group together following the instructor on stage with the warm up steps. During the warm up session Aveda staff will be misting the surrounding with Chakra™ Balancing Body Mist. Absolutely calming 😀
If you missed last year’s Walk For Water charity event, here’s your chance to be a part of this meaningful event this year.
