Take a look under your bathroom sink. What do you see in that cabinet? Besides the half empty bottles, tampons, and travel-sized samples you’ve pilfered from hotels, of course. Let us hazard a guess that you’ve got a tangled pile of retired hair dryers and straightening irons plus that snazzy curling gadget you keep meaning to use.

Brazen Loves: Trade Secrets Annual Give and Take Appliance Trade In EventAre we right? We know we are, because we’ve got that going on, too. And now we’ve got a way to make that electronics mess work for us—and someone else—in a major way.

It’s the Trade Secrets/Glamour Secrets 10th annual “Give & Take” hair appliance trade-in event, and #BrazenLoves it. Now in its 10th year, this promotion has helped dozens of women’s organizations and shelters across Canada, and with your participation, they can continue to do so. 

Trust us: This is hands down the best opportunity to clean out stuff you don’t use anymore while paying it forward and doing your part to help fellow women in need. It may seem like a simple action, but taking the time to donate your gently used hair appliance to a woman who is trying to make a fresh start will give you good vibes as the summer winds itself down.

WHAT IT IS: The “Give and Take” hair appliance trade in event calls on consumers to bring in their gently used hairstyling appliances to any Trade Secrets or Glamour Secrets location. The donated appliances will be given to women’s shelters and charities across Canada. The organizations selected all offer support and shelter for women and children escaping violence. These are woman who really need a helping hand.

WHEN IT IS: The program runs from July 23 to September 23, 2016, so although you’ve still got time to help, don’t delay. Women are waiting. 

THE PERK: The fact is, what goes around comes around, and that’s especially wonderful when it comes to kindness. Now, we don’t need perks to give to other women. But as a special thank you, anyone who brings in their gently used hair appliances will receive 50% off selected hair tool purchases. Salon-professional brands that are included in the promotion include BaBylissPRO, Hot Tools and GS Professional. Win-win, right? 

This is one opportunity you can’t pass up. What else can we say, except bag that stuff up and start the car!
