Intuition Salon and Spa Holding Annual Toy Drive to Benefit Foster Children

Intuition Salon & Spa is accepting donations of toys at both the Clearwater and St. Petersburg locations on Monday between 11am and 7pm and Tuesday through Saturday from 8am until 8pm at either

Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa announced this week the launch of their Annual Toy Drive and Fundraiser benefitting local foster children and “Together We Rise”. New or gently used toys can be dropped off at both the Clearwater and St. Petersburg Intuition Salon & Spa locations between now and Christmas during business hours. These toys will be donated to The Christmas Toy Shop located in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Christmas Toy Shop Project, Inc., is a non-profit, all volunteer organization with the goal of providing both new and refurbished toys to less fortunate children in South Pinellas County.

In addition to collecting toys, Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa has partnered with “Together We Rise” to raise money so that children in the foster care system have a Christmas to remember. Donations can be made in person at any of the salon locations or online at Intuition Christmas Fundraiser for the Kids!

Changing the way tens of thousands of children experience foster care in the United States, “Together We Rise” is a non-profit organization founded by Danny Mendoza in 2008. Upon learning that his young cousin was living in a car, Mendoza wanted to help but was denied the ability to do so due to his age. This inspired Mendoza to create ways to help youth in foster care without becoming a foster parent. Today “Together We Rise” is a nation-wide organization made up of motivated young adults and former foster youth collaborating with community partners to bring resources to foster children.

Nominated in 2016 for the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Award, the owner of Intuition Salon & Spa, Dawn Shannon has been an active supporter of programs serving children for the past 14 years. “Giving back to the community and helping children is important to me especially this time of year,” said Shannon. “When I learned the stories behind ‘Together We Rise’ and The Christmas Toy Shop I knew that this was a group that I wanted to support.”

Toys can be dropped off and donations can be made on Monday between 11am and 7pm and Tuesday through Saturday from 8am until 8pm at either 16 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater, FL (727-443-2927) or 2053 Central Ave. St. Petersburg, FL (727-322-3802). To learn more about Dawn Shannon and Intuition Salon & Spa please visit
