We are very happy to announce that AVEDA at Portland’s Pioneer Place Shopping Mall,
has adopted SAWERA for their holiday giving program.
AVEDA is a leader in all natural & cruelty-free hair and body care.
Every year the local AVEDA branch, at Pioneer Place Mall,
asks their guests if they’d like to donate a holiday package to their non-profit partners as a gift to women and children in need of some extra TLC this holiday season.
Well, SAWERA’s clients have been chosen to be this year’s recipients of this wonderful gift.
And what a kind gift that is. Most women haven’t dreamed of a bubble bath, a nice lotion or hair product in months, if not years.
*AVEDA feels it’s time to pamper our beautiful clients and their children, and we couldn’t agree more.
SAWERA is so grateful for this wonderful offer and new partnership.
Please stop by *AVEDA at Pioneer Place and pick up some goodies for yourself or the loved ones on your shopping list. Or just add a pamper package for one of our clients.
Let the Melissa and the rest of the staff know you’ve heard about this wonderful offer on our blog.
*Please note! This very special offer is only available Portland’s Pioneer Place location:

Heather was a beautiful young woman with a bright future. Her daughters, Aubrey and Alyssa adored her. On the outside she had it all. On the inside loomed a debilitating darkness. She struggled to overcome her battle with mental illness and sadly succumbed to suicide.
In Don’t Let Anyone Know
, Heather’s mother, Helen Cochran Coffey
shares the heart-wrenching story of her daughter’s struggle to survive, and a family’s desperate attempts to save her. The book portrays the chaos that overwhelms the mental health care system today, and the devastation and heartbreak suffered by those affected by mental illness and their families. Most importantly, Don’t Let Anyone Know
is a mother’s call to action to create communities of understanding, compassion and inclusion wherein people with mental illness find the treatment and supports to thrive in life.
The event is FREE and open to public. Seating is limited.
