Salinda's Big Chop

Leonardo is chopping his hair and needs your help to cover the wig making costs! <3

Hi everyone,

Leonardo here. 

As you know, I’ve been growing my hair long all of primary school. You might not know that I’ve been planning to donate my hair to be made into a wig once it’s long enough. Now I’m in my last year of primary school and my hair is long enough to donate at least 36 cm to be made into a wig. I feel like I am ready to make the big chop! Luckily my hair will grow back, which I am very thankful for. Some kids aren’t so lucky and it is them that we’ll be helping out. 

On the shortest day of the year when we are celebrating winter solstice I will be cutting my hair. I think this is a good time to do it because it’s the start of a new cycle of seasons and it’s a time of inner reflection.


Donating my hair is only one part of the process, we also need to raise the money for my hair to be made into a wig. It takes many hours of work to make a wig. Here’s where YOU come in - if everyone donates a couple of dollars we’ll have enough money in no time! So please follow the link and donate some money to this cause. Thanks heaps!
