It’s that time again this year to Partner in Compassion for the Holiday season! We have FIVE upcoming Compassion Missions we would love your help with in any way!
WIGS FOR KIDS COMPASSION MISSION
Ambassador President Safiya Alvi is also looking to raise funds for an organization based out of her old home, Cleveland, Ohio, called “Wigs for Kids”. This organization looks to raise money and collects donated hair to create wigs for children who are facing diseases that cause hair loss, as wigs are surprisingly expensive. So far, she has partnered with Krispy Kreme Donuts and sold boxes of donuts to raise money for the cause and is now looking to work out a partnership with Moes as well! Please reach out to her at if you’re interested in getting involved or have any ideas on ways to help. She would love for you to come to the Moe’s Family NIght Fundraiser on Dec 12th from 5-8pm at the Arboretum location on 127 Weston Parkway, Cary, NC.
