However, the “HAIR for HELP” initiative is the cornerstone of Bergmann Kord Corporate Social Responsibility.
HAIR for HELP: Life Initiative
The “HAIR for HELP” Initiative was created in 2010 on the occasion of meeting the needs of Associations of Cancer Patients, such as the Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Leap of Life”, to whom active support continues to this day.
This is an Initiative to support our fellow human beings who suffer from cancer or alopecia and are proven unable to cover the cost of purchasing a Rehabilitation Wig.
This Initiative encourages volunteers to donate their hair in order to make Disease Wigs which are then provided free of charge to needy oncology patients and patients with alopecia.
In recent years, the Initiative has become a “Movement”, as it has met with a great response from many places and different Social Groups.
Goals and Aspirations
Among other things, “HAIR for HELP” aims to highlight its educational character.
Thus, the selection of Educational Units as places for the implementation and dissemination of the Initiative is not random and is not limited to Hair Donation.
The Ultimate Purpose is the Training and Awareness of the representatives of the New Generation, in order to embrace the Values of Volunteering and Social Solidarity.
“Today we donate 25 cm of our hair, tomorrow we offer Blood, the next day we become conscious organ donors…”.
At the same time, Bergmann Kord executives actively participate in Informative and Supportive seminars, on upgrading the Quality of Life of the oncology patient.
The perspective of the Initiative in the future
Social Sensitivities and Solidarity as a way of life are components of Bergmann Kord DNA.
It is very logical, then, that all kinds of Actions in this direction be a key axis of its Corporate Strategy.
For the Management and Staff of Bergmann Kord the intensification of all the Activities of the Initiative “HAIR for HELP” is a decision taken.
In this context, the effort for Information, Awareness, increase of the Participation of the people in corresponding movements of Social Contribution will continue at an ever-increasing pace.
It’s something we ALL need!
