Quincy business joins the ‘FITE’

Nearly 400 salons and spas nationwide — including Great Northern Hair Co. in Quincy — are joining Dermalogica, the number one skin care product, in celebrating women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship in March. Come join JoAnn and Grace Ann for a “skin party” Thursday, March 10, from 4 – 7 p.m. You’ll get to feel and experience Dermalogica firsthand with a representative available to answer all of your skin care questions!

In honor of National Women’s History Month in March, Dermalogica accounts across the United States are teaming up to support the number one professional skin care brand’s participation in a new global philanthropic initiative, Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship(joinFITE.org), which aims to give women worldwide a hand up in achieving financial autonomy.

The mission of FITE is to help a minimum of 25,000 women in the United States and 56 countries around the world start or grow a business through consumer and corporate active participation in micro lending.   Consumers who purchase these products may participate in the funding of loans for these entrepreneurs by visiting joinFITE.org and redeeming a code issued on the packaging. That action triggers a $1 contribution from Dermalogica that the consumer allocates towards funding an entrepreneur of his or her choosing. Consumers have the ability to allocate the funds to an entrepreneur from the region and trade of their choice and receive progress updates from the specific entrepreneur they have funded which track how the donation has been invested and repaid.
