Pamper for a Purpose!
iACT is thrilled to partner with Never Again Coalition and Pamper for a Purpose for their 2018 event this coming weekend, July 13-14. Check out the Facebook event here.
All weekend long, wellness and beauty providers—hairdressers, estheticians, massage therapists, chiropractors, yoga teachers, etc.—will provide their services for donations towards iACT. All donations this year will help reach the remaining $2,528 needed to fill the food gap for Darfuri refugees.
Are you a wellness facilitator or practitioner (located anywhere in the world!)? You can get involved!

Pamper for a Purpose started in 2011 by a Portland hairstylist, Denise Wetherell, who was passionate about the conflict in Darfur and wanted to find a way to get involved. Denise created a successful fundraising and awareness event that involved her surrounding beauty community and local organizations.
Denise now designates two days out of the year to donate all of her earnings to a good cause. Pamper for a Purpose 2018 will be this weekend, July 13 & 14!
Last year, Denise donated her Pamper for a Purpose funds to iACT and was able to raise $1,623 for Little Ripples, iACT’s early childhood development program! This year, funds will support the Little Ripples daily meal program at a time when food rations are being cut to $5 per person per month.
Denise, Never Again Coalition, and iACT are taking Pamper for a Purpose to the next level by expanding the network and offering practitioners everywhere an opportunity to be part of pampering for a good cause. Next year, we have big plans to create a nation-wide weekend of Pampering for a Purpose.
