BENEFITING: ANGEL HAIR FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2014
Back in 2004, I looked on as many brave and wonderfully inspiring peers shaved their heads for cancer at my high school. I had wanted so terribly to do it myself; however, secretly, I was terrified at the prospect of losing my hair.
Some time and maturity points later, I realized that hair could always grow back. So I finally decided to give this a go myself! While my fundraiser will not be for cancer exclusively, I plan on shaving my head and donating my hair to an organization called Angel Hair for Kids. You can learn more about this wonderful program here: http://www.acvf.ca/index.php/our-programs/angel-hair-for-kids/
Cancer, although devastating, is not the only cause of hair loss. Children especially feel an impact on so many levels when they look 'different' from their peers. This is one of the few reasons why I chose this organization to donate to. The money I collect will help in the construction of a wig (or many wigs!). As well, my hair will be combined with the hair of other donors to create wigs for a child in need.
I wouldn't have this any other way.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement for this fundraiser. <3
