Abbey'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 majority of my hair, when cut, it will sit just below my shoulders. I’ve had long hair for as long as I can remember so I’m ready for a change! I’m nervous but super excited! 

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.

Why?

Sunday 29th May
‘Your hair is so long and gorgeous, don’t ever cut it!’ - every hairdresser ever!

I have been wanting to donate my hair now ever since I join the Army in 2019. I don’t necessarily have a why but I guess I am doing this is because if I can help someone feel more comfortable in their skin then why wouldn’t I do that. 

I have loved having long hair for my whole life, I want someone else to share that joy as well. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time but I’m so ready for this change 😌

Thanks for all the support
