Every year people from all over the country turn up to their local events to shave, colour or wax their hair to help raise much needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. Money raised goes towards blood cancer research and enables the foundation to provide free help to Australian families. Without the bravery and generosity of Australians, the 11,500 Australians affected by Leukaemia each year would not be able to rely on the Leukaemia Foundation for this support and much needed aid.
This year you’ll find events in Mudgee and across the state from March 14 to 17, and indeed throughout the month. If your job or family won’t permit you to shave your head for the cause, you can still take part in Funky Hair Friday on March 15, or get yourself sponsored to go green this Sunday in the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day.
If you are feeling brave and would like to commit your hair (or head) to the cause, you may also like to host your own shaving event. This can be held on any day and the Leukaemia Foundation will help to support your event with a host kit and promotion on their website. Is there anything better than seeing your workmates sweat as their much pampered mane falls to the ground in front of them… all in the name of a fantastic cause?
To get involved or learn more about the World’s Greatest Shave please head over to their website at http://www.worldsgreatestshave.com/. Aside from learning more about the wonderful work they do, you can also choose to find a shaving event, volunteer your clipping services or simply make a donation. Any help will no doubt be greatly appreciated and will go a long way to helping many Australian families in need.
To help you out we’ve found this fantastic Mudgee event:
