Chop your hair to help kids.

Your hair is given a second life and made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a long-term medical condition – giving back the gift of confidence and self-esteem.

All the money from the sale of the hair and your fundraising will go towards giving kids in need a fair go. This could mean purchasing a new wheelchair for a child with a disability or buying school uniforms for kids who are doing it tough.

Your Impact

Arianna

Arianna has Cerebral Palsy and was granted a standing frame. Now she can get out of her wheelchair, increase her mobility and independence and feel more included at school and at home.

Jayden

For the first time, Jayden can propel himself around on his feet using the granted standing frame, going where he pleases and start to strengthen the muscle tone of his legs.

Mia

Mia is autistic and has Asperger’s Syndrome. She needed a quiet space, to retreat from the world when she feels overwhelmed. We were able to fund a cubby house for Mia: a place to call her own.

Hannah

Hannah has Alopecia Areata and was granted a suction wig. Hannah loves her wig and wears it with pride during her netball matches and when she’s on stage dancing, singing or acting.
