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, which has enabled her to 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 standing frame, thanks to Variety’s supporters, going where he pleases and start to strengthen his legs.

Mia

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

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.
