First Lady, Hair Stylists Raise More than $2K for Japan
Public Comes Out in Droves for ‘Haircuts for a Cause’

March 27, 2011
Hundreds of people, including Governor Eddie Baza Calvo, flooded Guam Premier Outlets today, to get haircuts from the island’s best stylists and to help Japan.  First Lady Christine M.S. Calvo, leading the government-wide Japan relief efforts, teamed up with Guam’s hair stylists for “Cuts for a Cause,” an event where people donated money to the American Red Cross in exchange for haircuts.
“This was a huge success,” First Lady Calvo said.  “Many people are offering their talents to help our friends and neighbors in Japan. The best part is these efforts aren’t over; more help is on the way.”
More than $2000 was raised during “Cuts for a Cause.”  First Lady Calvo’s Office, meanwhile is still accepting donations on behalf of the American Red Cross.
Checks can be made payable to American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.  In order for these donations to directly benefit the Japanese people, all memo lines on checks must include: “Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami.”
Anyone interested in helping the people of Japan, through the government-wide relief efforts, can contact Jesse Alig at 475-9353, or email
