Open sesame! That’s the catch cry that some children in our community wish they could say and all their worries, fear and trauma would disappear. And they’d be safe.


You see, some homes are not that protected and loving for these children. So, Homes of Hope was set up in Tauranga to offer foster care for these children and to give them hope—in humanity, in life and in themselves. As a registered charity, Homes of Hope relies on donations from people in the community (like us) as well as businesses that often give products or services to help the children and their foster carers.


One such company that put their hand up to help out was Forty Thieves, a barbershop at 204 Maunganui Road in Mount Maunganui. The skilled barbers at Forty Thieves paid-it-forward two haircuts to be used by two of the children that Homes of Hope has made it their mission to care for. We’re not sure if mullets or mohawks were involved, but we’re sure the kids came out looking pretty cool! Homes of Hope were grateful for Forty Thieves’ generosity.


Assisting Forty Thieves were corporate partners Holland Beckett Law, a Bay of Plenty law firm, and Mount Main Street, the Mount Maunganui business community.


Next time you guys think you may need a trim, or want to try out an Ivy League or a Caesar haircut, head on down to Forty Thieves. They won’t come out brandishing swords, but they will sharpen their scissors and razors and their barbering skills to give you a new look and a new style. Add to your bill when you come to leave, and that’ll help them to keep on paying-it-forward to Homes of Hope.
