Abi's Big Chop

Abi is chopping her hair and needs your help!

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

She'll be chopping off her hair up to her shoulders. At present, it's halfway down her thighs! That's A LOT! 

We've set a target of $1K, but since wigs cost families up to $6,000, we'd love to raise heaps more. Wigs only last 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.

And it's done!!

Friday 21st Jan
After too many other things getting in the way of cutting it sooner, we've finally cut Abi's hair. 8 plaits, each measuring 29 inches from hair tie to tip before being plaited. (It loses about 6 inches of measured length once secured).
Thank you to everyone who donated and supported Abi's journey to help others.

THANK YOU!

HUGE thanks to everyone who keeps helping us achieve what we can to raise money for another in need. 
I can't imagine having to live without hair and how it would affect my self of identity.  I can't imagine my kids going through that either, so we all appreciate what you're doing to help.

You're all amazing!

Every little bit helps, and it's all so very appreciated. 
For each dollar donated, you bring us closer to achieving our goal -- to raise as much as money as we can to help other children. 
We couldn't do it without you. 

THANK YOU!

Photo time!

Wednesday 3rd Nov
Our local newspaper is going to run an article on Abi and her hair chop to raise more awareness and hopefully more donations. Photos have been taken and we'll find out soon when the article will run. How exciting!

Goal achieved!!

Tuesday 2nd Nov
Thanks to you, we've reached the goal!
Now... let's smash that! Here's to the next thousand mark. Cheers!

Amazing!!

Monday 1st Nov
In just 7 days, you've all helped Abi almost reach her minimum goal. THAT'S FANTASTIC!!
Huge thanks to everyone who's donated and sent messages of encouragement. 
In 21 days, Abi wants to go for the big chop (instead of the end of December) because school camp is coming up then and she'd love to manage it herself. 
How much more can we raise collectively in 3 weeks?? Of everyone can share the link, I'm sure we can raise almost enough to fund one wig for a child in need. 
WE CAN DO THIS!

Halfway there!

Wednesday 27th Oct
Thanks to all you wonderful people, we're halfway to our minimum goal! And in only a few days! Imagine how much we can raise for Variety if this keeps going. WOW!
Visiting the local newspaper tomorrow to get the community involved next!

Thank you!
