Past Events

Ben’s Bells

On July 11, 2016 we volunteered with Ben’s Bells, where we crafted unique wind chimes with an even more unique purpose.

Ben’s Bells is a non-profit that aims to inspire random acts of kindness. According to their website, “Recent research demonstrates that kindness benefits our physical and mental health, and that recognizing kindness in others increases a person’s happiness and satisfaction. But just as solving a calculus problem requires advanced math skills, the challenges of daily life require advanced kindness skills. By focusing on kindness and being intentional in our personal interactions, we can improve our ability to connect. The mission of Ben’s Bells is to inspire individuals and communities to engage in kindness education and practice.”

Each month, thousands of volunteers craft wind chimes made with the charity’s now-iconic bells. Bells are sculpted from clay, kiln fired, glazed, fired again, and then assembled. By the time each wind chime is finished, at least 10 people have participated in its creation. After volunteers assemble the chimes, Ben’s Bells hangs them in random locations around town. They’re meant to be found by members of the community, serving as reminders to practice intentional kindness.

CPR Training

On May 23, 2016 we trained with our pals at CPR Plus, learning how to perform both pediatric and adult CPR. We’ve even got a new automated external defibrillator (AED) in the salon, so we’ll be ready in case of emergency. We’re proud to be the best CPR/AED trained salon in the Valley! Knowledge is power.

Tough Mudder

Over 20 Rumors Salon stylists, staff members and friends conquered The Tough Mudder on April 30, 2016. We absolutely slayed the 10.2 mile course and all 22 obstacles–including electric shocks, freezing cold water and, of course, tons and tons of mud. This is one race that’s practically impossible to complete without true team work, and we’re so proud of our team for taking on such a huge challenge together and rocking it. Not only did we train and get fit together, but we also raised money for charity. Go Team Rumors!

Karley’s Angels Golf Tournament 2016

For the second year in a row, Rumors Salon hit the greens at The Raven Golf Club for Karley’s Angels. The second annual Karley’s Angels Golf Tournament benefits the Leukemia Lymphoma Society of America. This event honors and supports Karley Sichmeller, a local girl who was diagnosed with leukemia at just 4 years old. You can learn more about the event or make a donation at KaringforKarley.com.

Feed My Starving Children

Did you know that there are over 1,000,000,000 hungry people in the world right now? On April 27, 2015, Rumors Salon volunteered to pack meals for Feed My Starving Children at their Tempe packing facility. During our 90 minute session, we packed hundreds of nutritionally-fortified meals that were sent to over 70 countries worldwide.
