We give to help kids.
We believe childhood should be fun for kids, ALL kids, and the people who love them. That’s why our staff is specially trained to give haircuts to kids with special needs, and we support charities that are kid-and family-focused, like Wigs For Kids, Autism Speaks, and Global Down Syndrome Foundation. Plus we donate hundreds of free haircuts to local school and other kid focused charity fundraisers..
As parents, we know you’re trying to find ways to teach your kids how to be kind and give to others. So, we try to help you share those lessons, by offering you some easy and fun ways to give back with us, throughout the year.
We support Wigs For Kids.
Wigs For Kids is a kid-focused non-profit organization that donates wigs to children experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, burns, and other medical complications. If you have 12 or more inches of non-color or chemical processed hair you would like to donate for Wigs for Kids, we will cut your hair in a way that maximizes the donation length and mail the hair in for you. Plus you will get a coupon for $5 off your next haircut at KidSnips.

Autism Speaks is a cause near and dear to our hearts. We understand the unique challenges of raising a child with special needs, so we want to make haircuts an easier and less scary experience for these awesome kids.
We train our staff specifically to work with children with special needs. We’ve also compiled a free downloadable booklet to help prepare your child for what they can expect when they’re getting their hair cut.
Every April, our salons make a special donation to Autism Speaks and we give you the opportunity to help your kids understand that even getting a haircut can help make a difference. Sign up for our emails so you can participate in all our charitable giving opportunities.
We support Global Down Syndrome Foundation.
Almost everyone knows someone with Down syndrome. But at KidSnips we were shocked to learn that it’s the least funded major genetic condition by our National Institutes of Health… even though it’s the most frequent chromosomal disorder.
That’s why one of the charitable organizations that we’re proud to support is the Global Down Syndrome Foundation which funds life-changing research and medical care benefiting people with Down syndrome. And each year at KidSnips we set aside a special month to support kids with Down syndrome and their families by a donation to this important foundation.
By the way, if you have a child with Down syndrome and have concerns about getting their hair cut, please don’t hesitate to call your nearby KidSnips and talk it over. Our stylists are trained in working with kids who are scared, or wiggly, or have other special needs and we want every child and every parent to enjoy their visit with us.
