Shaving my head for Women's Refuge

$620 donated
Given by 22 generous donors in 4 weeks

Shaving 80cm/30in of hair to raise money for Women's Refuge to help people get through abusive situations.


Women's Refuge helped me come to terms with and work through the aftermath of being in an emotionally abusive relationship. I have met so many strong, inspirational women through Te Whare Pounamu, and seen first-hand what powerful positive impacts Women's Refuge has on people's lives. Bluntly, if not for them I would still be afraid of leaving my house, and seeing my friends.

I want to give something back to Te Whare Pounamu in return for the strength and support they have given me. Financial times are tough all round, but if you can spare even $1 that's one more dollar than i can give on my own, and it will go toward an amazing team of people who help women and families every day.

If you need everything you've got that's all chill! Please feel free to share this campaign on social media, tell your friends, get the word out.

My hair will be going to Freedom Wigs, a locally based company that makes wigs for people with alopecia and other conditions that cause hair loss.

Take care of yourselves.

Take care of each other.

Ask for help.

Let people help you.

You are loved, and you deserve to be.
