(CNS Local Life): A nail salon recently raised $600 for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC) through a campaign organised in honour of international women’s month. Cindy Oostvogels, owner of Polished, explained that during March customers were given 20% off pedicures for every $10 donated to the Crisis Centre.

“When one of our clients asked if we would be interested in supporting the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre for the month of March, we knew immediately how we could get involved,” Oostvogels said in a Crisis Centre press release.

“We are grateful to our generous clients for continuing to support the charities we select. Our hope is that this donation will assist those in need and let them know they’re not alone and that the community supports them.”

CICC executive director Ania Milanowska said she is grateful for the donation. “It is because of donations such as this that allows the Crisis Centre to provide continued support for women, men and children that are victims of domestic abuse,” Milanowska said. “We have a number of initiatives in which these funds will help support, including our TAYA lounge after-school programme and our goal to open a new purpose-built shelter.”
