Aracelis Unisex Salon volunteered to cut the hair of Safia Mohamed (8) Saudia Mohamed (12) and Stacy Sanichara (26) free of charge for donation to Erna Blackman who is the co-founder of Butterflies BBI.
“I am so impressed that these young women would choose to give up something so personal, especially for people they don’t really know,” said Councilwoman Adrienne Adams. “Their donation will help Butterflies BBI give second life to children who lost hope and feel depressed because they have lost their hair.”
Butterflies By Blaq Incorporated is a non-profit organization that provides free hair replacements and solutions to children who are experiencing hair-loss due to cancer treatment therapies, alopecia and other medical conditions.
“Witnessing these three thoughtful sisters donate their hair is shining example of the compassion that exists within our community,” said Sherry Algredo of Community Board 9. “We thank the parents Rayman and Nasalene for allowing the girls to participate and raising caring children.”
