Arathei's Big Chop

Hi, I'm Arathei from Parramatta High School!

I'm chopping my hair and need your help! A massive part of every person's identity is their hair. We spend a huge part of our lives tending to it and making it nice and presentable to express ourselves. Of course, while I value that, we need to realise there are so many people who do not have that privilege. So, I arrived at the decision to make the big chop and donate my hair to Variety - The Children's Charity.

Variety is a charity that makes wigs and basically helps to support kids who deal with alopecia and other disabilities/diseases. They change lives every day and I genuinely wanted to be part of that. I wanted to be a part of putting a smile on someone's face. 

However, if I am to do this, I definitely want to make sure this count!  Hence, by donating to Variety the Children's charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to children in need. Thank you for helping me help kids in need!

I've had my chop! All done at Hairhouse Warehouse Parramatta (thank you so much Sophie, you are amazing). It's going to take a while to adjust and learn how to style this thing, you know- rather than just throwing it into a ponytail? BUT I feel really really happy to know that my hair will be put to good use. Thank you everyone for your love, support and encouragement. Since we reached our goal, I have decided to push it up by another $500, because I know with everyone's help we can do it!

The chop is near!

My big day has come close!! Only one more sleep until my hair is sent off to help someone in need of it!!

Thanks for all the support
