Did you know that the average cost of back-to-school spending for kindergarten through 12th grade is $688? That’s a lot of money, especially so for low income families.

I’ve teamed up with Hair Cuttery to help put a dent in back to school costs for families in need. All you have to do is share this program via Facebook and/or Twitter through the widget above, and Hair Cuttery will donate a free haircut to a child in need. Taking a few seconds of your time to share this program is an easy way to help make a difference.

If you aren’t familiar with Hair Cuttery, they are the largest family owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country. They expect to donate more than 100,000 back-to-school haircuts – a total of $1.6 million – in this year’s Share-a-Haircut program. This is the 14th year of the program, the only one of its kind in the nation. Since the program’s launch in 1999, Hair Cuttery has donated more than 700,000 haircuts to kids in need. Nearly 900 salons nationwide will participate in this year’s event!

If Happy Mothering generates the most shares, I will focus the donations to Art in School programs.Art seems to be one of the first things to go from classrooms when budgets are cut.

My older daughter, Zoë, is very artistic and I can’t imagine having art taken out of her school. I want to give that opportunity back to more children.

If you have a moment after sharing via the widget above, check out DonorsChoose.org and let me know through a comment below which program(s) you think I should donate to if I win!
