Will you take the chop and change lives?

Cut your hair. Show you care.

Will you take the chop and change lives? Join Hair with Heart and donate your hair to Variety, and change a child’s life by giving the help that no one else is able to give.

Your lovely locks will be turned into wigs for people who’ve lost their hair from cancer, alopecia or other medical conditions. And when you get your friends and family to sponsor your ‘Big Chop’, you’ll raise funds that will transform kids’ lives.

How it works

Sign up

You can do it solo, with a ‘Chop Buddy’ or even create a ‘Chop Squad’ with all your pals. Once you raise your first $25, you'll receive a welcome pack full of useful items to support your Big Chop.

Spread the word

Get on your favourite social media. Tell everyone you're taking the Big Chop. And let them know they can donate on your personal fundraising page.

Get the Big Chop!

Your hair donation will change the life of someone living with medical hair loss. And the money you raise will help give all Aussie kids a fair go in life!

What happens to your hair?

Help no-one else can give

The money you raise with your Big Chop will help fund Variety’s other grants and programs too. You’ll change the lives of kids who are sick, living with a disability or experiencing disadvantage.

You’ll help kids like Hannah

At just four years of age, Hannah started getting bald patches. Soon after, she was diagnosed with the lifelong condition alopecia areata, which causes hair loss.

One of the most difficult things for Hannah was being called names or teased. She was nervous the teasing would get worse at high school.

By donating their hair and raising money through Hair with Heart, people like you have changed Hannah’s life. She received a custom-made wig to wear at school – and her confidence grew and grew.

Hannah, now 15, has settled into her new school and made lots of new friends. She loves playing netball, dancing and being on stage. Happy and outgoing, she doesn’t feel the need to wear her wig every day.

Will you help give a life-changing wig to another kid like Hannah?
