Maelie'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 36cm Before Christmas 2020.

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.

My first real cut

Thursday 10th Dec
DECEMBER 22ND 2020 will be my first real hair cut. Maelie has only ever had a trim with minimal being taken off at a time. This will be her first big cut and a drastic one too. But for such a great cause. Im so proud of her.

My Hair Journey

Saturday 28th Nov
I have been growing my hair since i was a baby and never had a big chop. One of the girls at my school got cancer and had to shave her hair off and i went home and spoke to my mum and said i should give her some of mine. My mum told me that i could by donating my hair so we looked into it. And i only needed to grow it a couple more cms so i could chop it off and have my hair at my shoulders still. So i got to growing. My mum measured my hair regularly and its now long enough to chop. I cant wait to help kids that need hair with my hair. 

Thanks for all the support
