WHAT'S GOING ON?


May is Mental Health Awareness Month so we are supporting our friends in The You Rock Foundation by helping them launch their 1 Million Mohawks for Mental Health campaign! Society has come a long way, but stigma around mental health still prevents countless people from talking.

We are all impacted personally or by a friend or family members struggles and challenges. We are determined to change that by bringing some much-needed attention to all of those who are suffering, and we are personally challenging you all to help us do that. How? By taking the 1 million mohawk challenge!
