Holyoke, Massachusetts – Nineteen deserving recipients received micro-grants from a total of $20,000.00 awarded by Unify Against Bullying to help fund their anti-bullying initiatives. These initiatives will benefit our youth in schools and the community. In addition, an additional applicant was chosen to receive a $1000.00 grant from the Paul Mitchell Neon product line for a grand total of $20,000.00. The grants were awarded on October 21st, 2019 prior to Unify’s all-inclusive fashion show at the Log Cabin located at 500 Easthampton Road in Holyoke. Without the generosity of our donors, the grassroots efforts to promote the anti-bullying message would be in doubt. Unify is grateful to the countless businesses that stepped up to support our youth. It’s through their generous donations that we can help families struggling with this pervasive issue throughout our region and beyond. Unify is grateful to Carla Cosenzi and the Tommy Car Auto group for once again being our presenting sponsor.

Unify was proud to recognize and award Michaeline DeJoria Heydari, Vice Chairman for John Paul Mitchell Systems their inaugural “Champion” award. A Champion is an individual who supports an initiative to bring a program or idea to reality that will improve the quality of life for our youth. Ms. Heydari is an inspired visionary who saw an issue and took a leadership role to transform it. Due to her efforts, the Neon product line and Stick it to bullying campaign does just that. She was chosen for her efforts to help raise awareness to this issue and to empower our youth to Stick it to bullying!
