Tangerine Salon is a company dedicated to its customers and its employees, but it is also a salon dedicated to working with nonprofit organizations. “Giving back is a huge part of our culture and we do it all year round. Earth Month is by far our largest fundraising campaign, but we also partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in October, Taylor's Gift, the local Humane Societies for our Pet Adoptions, and other various organizations throughout the year,” says Aubrey Garcia, the marketing and events manager for the Tangerine Group. The fundraisers that Tangerine hosts are often times fun activities that are meant to raise money for a good cause and bring awareness to an issue, while encouraging people to mix and mingle. Recently, Tangerine partnered with Zyn22, a spin class studio, to hold a fundraiser that drew an impressive crowd.
Cycling For Clean Water
Kevin Walsh, who is a Master Stylist at the Preston Hollow location and has been with Tangerine for nearly 10 years, was the person who organized the event in conjunction with Zyn22. According to him, “all the events that we do during earth month go to The Gulf Restoration Network. The earth month candles we sell do benefit another organization called Global Green Grants. They provide help to 3rd world countries and provide them with clean water systems in their villages.”
As an avid spin class fan, Kevin saw a great opportunity to partner Tangerine with Zyn22 on Park Lane, to host a fun fundraiser that inspired a healthy lifestyle, while raising money for clean water; “Zyn22 changed my life so I wanted to give others the chance to change their lives personally and for charity all at the same time!” The event drew a crowd of around 50 people to participate in the spin class and countless other donations, all of which went to The Gulf Restoration Network.
Caring About the Planet
What inspires Tangerine to promote a healthy earth? “We, along with Aveda, like to give back as much as we can to others in need and to our planet. We realize that our industry can take a lot of our planets resources and so in turn we try to give back to it as much as possible.”
The benefits of these fundraisers are not only reflected through the organizations they benefit, but also through the eyes of the employees of Tangerine. “I love it! it shows me that the people I work for care as much as I do. I also love working for a company that makes it so easy for me to be a part of these charities and to give back to society.” Kevin, after organizing this particular fundraiser, could not stop talking about the pride he felt in his work and in his company. Being a part of a team that promotes giving back and goes above and beyond to help its staff do the same is a quality that makes Tangerine an amazing company to work for and a wonderful family to join.

As a copywriter and blogger, nothing is more rewarding than getting to use your words to promote brands and messages that you care about. Being asked to work with a company like Tangerine is one such honor for me.
