GREENSBORO, N.C. – A Greensboro hair salon owner created a fundraiser to help hairdressers across the nation who've been idled by the coronavirus. 

Kenny Kallam has owned Boho Salon in Greensboro for three years and has been a hairdresser for 30 years, living all over the country.  

Kallam said hairdressers are out of work and have no source of income.

That's why he created a T-shirt fundraiser called “#emptychairs” to raise money to distribute to hairdressers.

"I'm going to stand up and do something for our industry, and I want everybody else that is a hairdresser to stand up with me and fill these empty chairs," Kallam said. 

Their goal is to raise $150,000, and he said the way it works is hairdressers from anywhere across the country can email if they need funding, and they will distribute the money based on need and qualifications. 

You can also donate online to the fundraiser.
