  • Hailey, NSW
    I've been growing my hair for many years now and shortly after my 21st birthday I decided it was time for a change. Since I was wanting to chop off about 40 cm of hair, I researched places I could donate my hair to. I came across Variety and fell in love the work they do and the amazing impact they have on children's lives. It was the extra push I needed to go through with the massive haircut! Even though we're in lockdown in Sydney, my wonderful mum is a hairdresser and agreed to do the chop for me. I'm so happy to be donating this hair and I hope it makes a big difference to a child and family in need! Also thank you Variety for the wonderful work you do!

    My cousin has just been diagnosed with leukaemia and I was ready to get my hair chopped off. My mum thought it would be good to donate my hair!
  • Isabelle, TAS
    I have always found my hair to grow very quickly and decided I wanted to grow it long enough to be able to donate it so that someone else will be able to enjoy having long hair as well. I'm looking forward to growing it back so I'm able to donate again.
  • Asmita, NSW
    My hair is so healthy and long and I always wanted to utilize it by giving to others who really need it. I love to donate!
  • Sophie, NSW
    It has been 12 months since I donated my hair in 2020. It has always been a goal of mine to grow my hair long enough to be able to donate it to children less fortunate then I am. By doing this I give children the best chance to have the same opportunities in life that I have been lucky enough to endure. My job was easy, I got a simple haircut. A haircut that will hopefully change a child’s life.

  • Haylee, WA
    Hi I'm Haylee and I'm 10 years old. At aged 4 I decided to grow my hair with the one goal of getting it long enough to donate to Hair with Heart to have it turned into a wig for someone who has lost their hair. Six years of growth, and 39cm length of pony tail to donate - and I am so proud of myself knowing that I have made a difference in a persons life.
  • Sanduni, VIC
    What made me inspired to donate my hair was that there are so many young children who need wigs. It is really upsetting to see how they are struggling to purchase real wigs, and with a good heart, I wanted to donate my hair to help support them for a good cause.
  • Pattraporn, VIC
    Because there are children and adults in the world who are in need of wigs due to the temporary or permanent loss of hair from chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues. And of course, because it makes you feel good inside knowing you’ve helped someone in need.
  • Salina, VIC
    I wanted to help kids who don't have hair, so I gave them some of mine.
  • Heidi, VIC

  • Eve, NSW
    Earlier this year, my friends and I did a fundraiser, so I thought I would grow and donate my hair as another way to help kids in need.
  • Liz and Eva, VIC
    Eva and I LOVE long hair- but over the last few months began talking about others who don’t have the opportunity to grow theirs for various reasons. ♥️ We wanted our well loved hair to be loved by someone in need.
  • Alexandros, VIC
    My name is Alexandros Antonakopoulos. From a very early age, I had a dream of being able to do something for children with special needs and in my opinion, they are the real heroes for the society. I always wanted to work on this dream and convert this into reality. Nothing can replace the smile of these children and the feelings they must be going through, however, if I manage to make one child happy for at least one day, my dream is fulfilled! I would certainly hope and pray many children can follow this example and turn the world into a better place. Through the generosity of my family and friends, I managed to raise over $1000. Thanks, everyone for the support, I'm very grateful and proud for you guys!!! Always choose kindness and love. God bless you.
