Take the chop and change lives

Fundraise and donate your ponytail to Variety

Start Fundraising 

How it Works


Commit to chopping your hair, set the date and get ready to help give 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 kids in need.


Money raised will help kids living with disability, chronic illness and disadvantage.

Get Started

Step 1

Is your hair ready for the big chop?

We are chuffed that you want to help others but we do have some guidelines.

If your hair is too short or dyed, read more about why we’re unable to accept it and where we recommend you donate it to.

Step 2

Friends and family can help support.

It’s simple to get started with your fundraising! Pick a page name. Post a picture. Write a little story about why you’re donating your hair. And that’s it! 

Thinking bigger? Why not get your school or work involved? We’ve got lots of tips and tools to get you started here.


Step 3

Make your big chop count.

Ask a hairdresser or even a friend or family member to chop your hair.

Make sure you’ve got the instructions on hand.

And don’t forget to take some before and after photos, or why not share a live video of your chop? #hairwithheart


Step 4

Donate your long locks.

With your long locks chopped, the last step is to donate them to Variety.

Complete your Hair Donation form and pop it in the post along with your ponytails.

I have been wanting to donate my hair for a long time now and it finally was long enough. It makes me happy to know that my hair will bring a smile to someone else who needs hair more than me.


When I heard people had lost their hair it made me feel sad for them. I felt bad because I had very long hair and they had none, so I decided I wanted to give them some of my hair.


I love to give. I give away clothes, toys and school supplies that I have in spare. So my mom encouraged me to grow my hair for donation. I am so happy to donate my hair for anyone who is in need of i...
