ACCO’S Pedi-CURE

Ped- is a prefix, meaning “foot” (as in pedicure). It is also a prefix that means “child” (as in pediatrician or pediatrics). Also, a CURE is the ultimate goal of the childhood cancer community. So, together, “pedi” and “cure” combine to form the name of a pretty fun way to raise funds for childhood cancer research and family support programs.

Salons, spas, and even families and groups of friends can host Pedi-CURE events to help promote childhood cancer awareness and raise funds to support the research and family support initiatives of the American Childhood Cancer Organization®. These events also help create understanding, supportive communities for children and families who are facing the difficult childhood cancer journey. In addition, the signature gold nail polish used in Pedi-CURE events helps raise awareness of gold as the international color for childhood cancer awareness.

_X0A2058Our Pedi-CURE program is a simple, fun way to raise awareness and funds for these children, join in the fight to beat childhood cancer, and provide HOPE to those who need it most. We encourage you to come up with a creative, exciting way to spark awareness of the needs of children with cancer, while raising money to support the ACCO and its mission to improve the lives of children with cancer. Every Pedi-CURE event creates awareness of childhood cancer, creates supportive communities for local families who are dealing with childhood cancer, and raises funds to provide resources and support for children and their families currently fighting cancer.

Pedi-CURE at your favorite Salon

If your Salon would like to help raise awareness and funds
for Childhood Cancer with a Pedi-CURE event there are a couple of options for how you can participate.

Profit-share event:
First determine when you would like to hold the event and for how long. We ask that salon’s pledge to donate between 10% and 20% of the revenue from pedicures during the event time frame. ACCO will provide flyers for the salon to display at their location as well as a digital ad to be promoted through the salon’s social media to inform their customers they are supporting childhood cancer awareness month.

Gold Ribbon event:
Gold NailsIf your salon would like to help raise awareness for childhood cancer, but the profit-share event is not a good option, we have the gold ribbon option. During the event we ask that you offer your customers the option to receive “gold nail art” for a donation to ACCO. We would suggest a small gold ribbon or heart on their big toes. ACCO will provide 2 bottles of gold nail polish to participating salons. ACCO will provide flyers for the salon to display at their location as well as a digital ad to be promoted through the salon’s social media to inform their customers they are supporting childhood cancer awareness month.
