One question every stylist will be asked during his or her career is, “How do you stand all day?” We stand behind a chair as a requirement to serve our guest which can be strenuous. However, we are so conditioned to standing that the concept of being sedentary for a day’s work makes us cringe.
To move, to engage, to serve our clients and build lasting relationships is what surpasses the challenge of something as simple (or exhausting) as standing. The more we do something, the easier it becomes. The task doesn’t change, we just become more successful at it. We believe the better question is for all of us… What do we stand for?
ViVo stands by our services and our deep passion for our craft but we also stand for purpose, stand united, and stand for awareness. Together we STAND. We believe we all have the power make a positive impact for generations to come and the more we help others, the more we find opportunity to do so.
We find inspiration through everyone that comes to ViVo. It is blind to gender, race, or age.
The month of October we STAND in support of Kadyn’s Krew, an organization established to raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis research. ViVo has had the honor of being inspired by Kadyn and her march to help people with CF.
At the age of 10 she has shown more courage and hope for others with genetic diseases than most would achieve in a lifetime. She has touched the hearts of each one of us with her spirit of perseverance, determination, and positivity to strive for making a difference in every situation life presents us.
“We created Kadyn’s Krew in 2009 to spread awareness and raise funds to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. In just 10 years our Krew has raised over 1 million dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. When we said maybe Kadyn would be a champion for CF we had no idea how true that would be.” – Katie Carroll
ViVo will be sharing proceeds to Kadyn’s Krew, along with joining Kadyn in the Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis October 5th at Rutledge Wilson Community Farm Park, in Springfield, MO.
