I hope this reaches you in good spirits. I am e mailing you about your availability for Feb. 27th between 11am-5pm. I am asking for stylist and barbers that you may know to come and donate time as we reward kids that read the free African american history books we have for them with free haircuts and hair dos. Please let me know what you will be able to do. Further details of the project and event is located below.
