Aussie kids impacted by Variety last year
Different medical conditions were supported
Amazing people fundraising
People have donated their hair
Chop your hair to help Aussie kids.
Your hair is given a second life and made into a great new wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a long-term medical condition – giving back the gift of confidence and self-esteem.
But you’re also helping in another way, all the money you raise goes to Variety – the Children’s Charity and we use it to help give Aussie kids in need a fair go. All the hard work you put into your fundraising can go towards supporting kids in so many ways, from purchasing a child with a disability a new wheelchair to buying school uniforms for kids who are doing it tough.
How It Works
Commit to chopping your hair, set the date and get ready to help give Aussie kids a fair go.
Your hair will be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a long-term medical condition.
Rally the support of friends and family to help you on your Hair with Heart journey, and raise money for Aussie kids in need.
Money raised will help kids living with disability, chronic illness and disadvantage.
Arianna has Cerebral Palsy and was granted a standing frame, which has enabled her to get out of her wheelchair, increase her mobility and independence and feel more included at school and at home.
For the first time, Jayden can propel himself around on his feet using the standing frame, thanks to Variety’s supporters, going where he pleases and start to strengthen his legs.
Mia who is autistic and has Asperger’s Syndrome needed the provision of a quiet space, where she can retreat from the world when she feels overwhelmed. It is essential for her health and wellbeing, thanks to Variety’s supporters we were about to fund a cubby house for Mia: a place to call her own.
Casimir, who is a 16 year old Aboriginal young man, has an intellectual disability, ASD, attachment disorder and speech delay. With the help of Variety he received a grant for a new computer to assist him in his school work and artwork.
