Chopping my mop for charity - hoping to raise a decent amount for KidsCan, Heart Kids New Zealand and the Child Cancer Foundation.

Main image

I just want the best for New Zealand's kids - whether it's helping feed them, clothe them or helping them afford the treatment they need because they're sick. I just want to help.

I've also always wanted to shave my hair off - I know that might sound strange, but it's just something I've wanted to do in my lifetime.

I have a lot of hair - and it's definitely a huge part of who I am; but I've always been curious to know what happens when I take the hair away.

So many people out there have no choice when they lose their hair - whether its because they are going through chemotherapy, or because they have alopecia or another reason.

I know I am fortunate to have a choice.

And because I have a large following on social media, I wanted to use this opportunity to raise as much money as possible to help some Kiwi kids out.

I have chosen three charities which are all close to my heart - KidsCan, Heart Kids New Zealand and the Child Cancer Foundation.

Whatever proceeds I raise (after the fees are taken out), the amount will be split 3 ways and donated to the above charities.

If you'd like to donate, please do so - ALL funds raised (less the admin fees) will go direct to charity. None of it will go to me (and rightly so).

I will be live streaming the big "chop" on my Instagram and Facebook pages.



PS I have been asked a lot why i'm not growing my hair out and donating the locks - I looked into this but I a) colour my hair and b) have too many greys in one spot for my hair to be considered.

I am the person behind Happy Mum Happy Child, and am planning on cutting all my hair off and wanted to raise funds during the lead up to help as many kids as possible.
