UPDATE (26th May, 4.05am): Collection of $410! I’ve crossed the $400 target that I set!! Joshua has also collected $50 so far. Thank you to all the big-hearted people who have donated without hesitation. Let’s keep the donations coming in! Remember, no sum is too small or insignificant.
To those who have donated but have requested that I keep my hair, I regret to inform you that it is not possible. This movement is about bringing awareness to the children’s plight, as much as it is a charity event to amass donations. I have signed up to shave, and shave I will. But I will be requesting for them to cut off my hair first so that I can send it in to Locks Of Love to be made into wigs for kids in USA. Double goodness in one!
For those who want to caress my beautiful hair one last time, please do so before 5th July (the event day). I will also be looking forward to those who want to come and support me, Joshua and PapaNash on the day itself.
I’ve been contemplating this for YEARS. But I was always (and still am) too chicken to do it.
Now that the Hair For Hope 2008 is coming round again, I am gearing up to take part.
But I am still chicken. (Actually I think it’s more of vanity than the lack of courage.)
So, if you can donate to the Children Cancer Foundation, and I can collect more than $400 of donations for the CCF, I’ll join the Hair For Hope 2008 and get my head shaven. Bald. For charity.
You can make your donations here, show me proof of your donation via screencap or email or whatever (my email address can be found on the right sidebar). And I will go get my head shaved.
My luscious head of hair for $20 of your donation to the poor suffering kids who have contracted cancer… That’s not too much to ask for is it?
I could (and probably still might) go get my head shaved (sooner or later) for charity. But how much can I do? But if you would donate $20 (which is a small sum to you) and I can raise more funds for the CCF, why not?
Of course, if you want to join me, Joshua and PapaNash to get shaven, we welcome the company. But if you’re chicken like me, and you yet you want to do something for these kids, DONATE. And I’ll get my head shaven on your behalf.
If you are wondering if you’ll look shitty without hair, I worry about the same thing too. Afterall, bald women aren’t that common on the streets.
But think about some sad little girl who would love to plait her hair or don a ponytail but she can’t because she has cancer and her hair is falling out in ugly clumps. On top of that, she constantly feels ill and is undergoing medical treatment DAILY.
How does THAT make you feel now?
So go on. Donate to Hair For Hope. And I’ll shave my head bald in support of the cause. A small sum to buy hope for some kids who struggle each day of their lives to stay alive and become healthy.
We’ll be waiting for your donations! 🙂
