2013 - Week 11 Update
This week I’d like to recognize two groups of people for their amazing support to the FUNraising campaign.
Habitat for Humanity Final Report for Paul Mitchell Schools
The January 2010 earthquake damaged nearly 190,000 houses in Haiti, and 105,000 of those houses were destroyed. Of the more than 2 miliion affected survivors, more than 350,000 are still displaced and living in settlement sites. Thanks to Paul Mitchell Schools' generous gift in 2013, along with help from many other partners, Habitat for Humanity completed a major milestone: building 300 core homes in the community of Santo.

2013 - Week 9 Update
Last week’s Midway Fireburner was so inspiring and amazing! Congratulations to the Top 10 FUNraising schools at the midway point ...
The Stars Come Out for Charity
Betty White, Fran Drescher, Donny and Marie Osmond, Magic Johnson, Gary Sinise, Megyn Price, and Kathy Buckley Join Paul Mitchell Schools’ 2013 “FUNraising” Campaign!
For the 10th straight year, the 16,000 cosmetology students and staff members from the nationwide network of Paul Mitchell Schools are spending February through April raising money for charitable organizations. Their goal: To take their grand total over the $11 million mark by raising $2.5 million this year. Their partners: A host of superstar celebrities representing 11 spectacular charities. They raised $2.5 million last year … can they do it again?
2013 - Week 8 Update
We’ve reached the midway point in our 2013 FUNraising campaign! Have you shown the Midway Fireburner Webinar in your school? Magic Johnson shared an inspiring message, we announced the Top 10 schools at the midway point, and we heard some great FUNraising ideas from three of the Top 10 schools!
2013 - Week 7 Update
This week’s big news is our upcoming Midway Fireburner, featuring 3 of our top 10 FUNraising schools as of the midway point. Mark your calendars and get ready to be inspired! Midway Fireburner Webinar:Thursday, March 28.
More big news … check out the Fireburner videos, launch video clips, and special video messages from our partners now playing on our Paul Mitchell Schools YouTube channel.

If your school has FUNraising videos to share, please send us the link so we can consider them for the playlist!
2013 - Week 6 Update
WOW! We’re almost at the halfway point of our 2013 campaign. Are you on track to reach your goal? The halfway point is a great time to see where you stand and make adjustments as needed. And statistically, most of our schools raise MORE money during the second half of our FUNraising campaign than in the first half. This is also the perfect time for some inspiration and motivation, so mark your calendars for our Midway Fireburner Webinar, Thursday, March 28. You will need to schedule about 45 minutes on Thursday, March 28 for your fireburners for both DAY and NIGHT school.
2013 - Week 5 Update
Before we dive into this week’s victories, I want to share three key points illustrated in some recent FUNraising updates.
Point #1: The Power of Asking – Student Council Team Leader Tami Gibson of Vanguard College of Cosmetology Baton Rouge sent Southwest Airlines a request to donate, and they sent her two round-trip tickets valued at $800 each, for travel anywhere in the United States. Vanguard is raffling them off for $20 a chance, and they expect to raise a LOT of money! Remember, you’ll never know what you can accomplish unless you ask.
2013 - Week 4 Update
2013 - Week 3 Update
Our 2013 FUNraising campaign is off to such a great start! Your victories and updates are pouring in and making me proud! Several schools have welcomed special guests to motivate and share their experiences about this year’s charities. You’ve had speakers from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and your local Boys and Girls Clubs. At Rudy and Kelly Academy, Admissions Leader Karen Bevan, diagnosed with cancer in 2012, shared the importance of cancer research, and Future Professional Sandra Huey, a cancer survivor and Make a Wish Foundation volunteer, talked about a precious girl at their local Children's Hospital. At Paul Mitchell The School Sherman Oaks, staff members shared stories about loved ones who had passed away from cancer and a beloved dog who died from an illness. How are YOU sharing your connection to the causes?
