Tangle Teezer believes in supporting the charities we partner with through projects which help reach people and share the messages most important to them. Whether it’s sponsoring rock concerts or virtual reality tours to help raise awareness, you can read more about our work with each charity below.
HAIRraising is a charitable initiative that brings together the salon and hair care communities to help the sickest children from around the world, by supporting Boston Children's Hospital.
Boston Children's Hospital plays a critical role in global health care. It is the #1 ranked Pediatric Hospital and Research Center in the United States. In addition, it is ranked #1 in 8 out of 10 specialties, including the best hospital for Cancer, Cardiology & Heart Surgery and Neurology & Neurosurgery. Both children and adults alike are impacted by the cures, treatments and innovations discovered at Boston Children's Hospital, so we couldn’t be happier to be involved.
In support of the charity, from January this year until January 2017, Tangle Teezer is donating 25 cents of every The Original hairbrush sold in the USA to the HAIRraising initiative.
National Autistic Society
Touched by emails and letters received from autistic people and parents with an autistic child delighting over the easy, gentle life changing and sensory benefits of a Tangle Teezer hairbrush, we are thrilled to be partnering with The National Autistic Society.
Around 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum and together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day.
This year Tangle Teezer supports The National Autistic Society’s exciting Virtual Reality experience which is part of their biggest ever awareness campaign, Too Much Information #TMI. Running until November they will be touring the country giving people real, first-person insight into the overwhelming sensory experience of an autistic child in their virtual reality booths.
In further support of the charity, some members of the Tangle Teezer team took part in the Richmond Running Festival on 18th September 2016. If you’d like to show your support, you can sponsor us here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Tangle-Teezer1
Teenage Cancer Trust
Tangle Teezer is proud to have partnered with Teenage Cancer Trust since 2014, the only charity dedicated to treating teenagers as young people first and cancer patients second.
Donations go towards creating their own wards where patients can mix with people of their own age and share valuable experiences, making them feel less alone during this stressful time.
From supporting Teenage Cancer Action Week last year to being an Associate Sponsor at the Royal Albert Hall gigs in both 2015 and 2016, Tangle Teezer is always privileged to be involved.
