I'M CUTTING MY HAIR FOR CHARITY!



Hello!

Today's post isn't exactly beauty related, but it is about hair which kind of counts in my mind! Hopefully you don't mind me sharing these links here.

The Little Princess Trust is a wonderful charity that provides wigs free of charge to children across the UK who have lost their hair through illnesses and their treatments. They accept donations of hair to make their wigs out of, which is why I'm cutting mine, and they also accept donations of money to help buy in specially made wigs if none of the donated hair is suitable for a certain child. I'm donating almost 14 inches of my hair to the Little Princess Trust, and alongside that I'm asking for donations to raise a target of £350 so the charity can buy in a wig if they need to.

The length of my hair before the
chop! It's almost 75cm long.
Ever since I could grow it, my hair has been long. At the moment, it's past my hips! I know that if I were to suddenly lose all my hair in clumps, it would be very difficult for me. On top of feeling insecure, the children the charity support are also very ill, and undergoing intense treatments that leave them exhausted and sick. Donations of hair and money can help a poorly child keep hold of some of their confidence in the face of the difficulties they're facing, and to me, that's definitely a worthy cause.

If you would like to donate, HERE is a link to the JustGiving page I've set up. Alternatively, you can text 'HLPT98 £5' to donate five pounds (change the number you type to change the amount of your donation - you're not limited to £5!) to the charity. Every penny of your donation goes to the Little Princess Trust, and if you're a UK tax payer, you can opt to GiftAid your donation so the government gives extra money on top of your donation without an extra charge to you! If you're not in a position to donate, you can share either this blog post or the link to my JustGiving page, so that more people can see it and we can raise as much money for the Little Princess Trust as we can!

I'm nervous about cutting my hair, but I'm very excited at the same time. I've wanted a change for a while and I'm happy to be supporting such a worthwhile charity. We'll see how I look with shoulder-length hair on Thursday!

Thank you for all your help and support!
