Gemma's Big Chop

I'm chopping my hair and need your help!

I have made the decision to make a difference by cutting and donating my hair to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition.

I'll be chopping off 40 cm.

Wigs cost families up to $6,000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth. By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need. Thank you for helping kids in need.

Thanks everyone for your support and donations. I'm now sporting a bob and my hair is ready to be posted off to Variety Club. Donations can still be made. I really appreciate how generous my family, friends and even people I do not know, have been. I'm sure Variety club will put my hair and the donations to good use helping kids. 

Wow, people are so generous !

Thanks to all the amazing and generous people who have donated this week. In my next post, I'll be sporting a much shorter hair style.....

Thank you to everyone who has already donated!
