BUZZitFORWARD - DO BETTER PROJECT Philanthropy Miami 2017 Shark Tank Winner
With help from many partners and volunteers we have created and jump-started our BUZZitFORWARD - DO BETTER PROJECT, designed to help our youth LOOK BETTER, FEEL BETTER, and in-turn, DO BETTER.
The purpose is to encourage kids in our communities to do better or continue doing better by providing them with complimentary grooming and mentoring services (any haircut or hairstyle of their choosing) throughout the school year.
The service of the haircut helps our kids Look Better and Feel Better. While local community barbers provide one-on-one bonding with a person our kids trust, words of encouragement, and the follow-up needed to help them continue to Do Better.
Local schools, group homes and other youth organizations in our communities can sign up to participate in the BUZZ BOXX Mobile route where we will visit their location periodically to service their youth.
In an effort to empower our communities we aim to partner with barbers from within the communities we serve.
The youth's progress (and our success) is monitored through surveys and reports from the kids and the participating youth organizations and schools.
Teaming up with local barbers and barbershops, together with the support of local sponsors, gives us the potential to service over 600 kids per month and over 7,200 kids of multiple communities per year.
