Fantastic Sams Partners With Locks of Love

November 15, 2005

In honor of its 30th anniversary, Fantastic Sams aims to break its record for charitable giving, according to company executives.

For the past three years, Fantastic Sams has partnered with Locks of Love, a national non-profit organization that helps hundreds of financially disadvantaged children who suffer from long-term medical hair loss by providing them with custom-fitted hairpieces. During that time, Fantastic Sams has provided Locks of Love with more than $20,000 and 6000 ponytails.

This year, Fantastic Sams’ more than 1,300 franchises worldwide will pull together as “Fantastic Friends” to bring that total to $30,000 and 10,000 ponytails for Locks of Love.

“We’re a family-focused business, and contributing to Locks of Love is our way of making everyone part of our family,” said Jack Keilt, president and chief executive officer, Fantastic Sams. “When a relative is in need, a family rallies around in support. What we’re trying to do is maintain that spirit on a much larger scale, encompassing every one of our salons and stylists and every single Fantastic Sams customer.”

Hair donations can be dropped off at Fantastic Sams locations nationwide. Company executives said the hair donations must be at least 10 inches long, bundled in a ponytail, clean and dry. The pieces are provided free of charge to children under 18 who meet the organization’s guidelines. More info: Website: www.fantasticsams.com.
