      Just checking in to say hello! I am going to repost this on my FB page to try to encourage some giving! As I noted in my previous email to you (complete with typos) I heard from a dear friend who visited the shop regularly in the 1980's for one of her best hair "looks." Hope the rest comes in really soon! Susan

      Thank you for your e-mail. I am so inspired by you and this project. I shared it on my FB page and heard from a frind in NYC that she has her hair cut there in the 80's! Such a great story for so many reasons. I wish you continued success and many, many more backers! Susan dePasquale

      I've been coming to see Alberto for a few years now and am really proud to see him and everyone else at Astor Place getting a spotlight. I'm really excited to see this project come to fruition.
