Stay in the know with our waxing blog.

It’s that time of year again! The sun is out, the birds are chirping, Portlanders are soaking up every minute of our beautiful long days, and Urban Waxx is gearing up for our annual Anniversary Raffle.

Each year, to commemorate the day Urban Waxx landed on the scene taking care of the finest people in Portland, we hold a charity raffle to raise money that will be given back to the community that has inspired us in many different, exciting ways.

This year, I am very pleased to announce that the funds raised will be donated to two amazing organizations: The Bradley Angle House, and charity: water.

The Bradley Angle House is a multi-faceted organization based in Portland, providing a broad continuum of essential services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. They do an outstanding job of providing emergency shelter, transition services, emotional support and advocacy, and job training, to those in need.
On an international level, funds will also be given to a group called charity: water. Charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. 100% of all public donations directly fund water projects, and they prove the use of every dollar donated by providing photos and GPS coordinates. Charity: water goes above and beyond to ensure that wells are dug safely and securely, as well as training people in the local communities to maintain the wells, ensuring clean drinking water for all.
Both of these organizations could use your help to ensure that the awesome work they are doing can continue. Please visit their websites to learn more!
