I haven’t cut my hair for four years. Four loooonnggg years. I have enjoyed the benefits of having a bunch of hair style options, and the occasional bird making a nest in my golden locks.
I’m doing something that really really scares me. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a little while now, but never really mustered up the courage to do anything about it.
It’s time to put my hair to good use.
1 in 3 people in New Zealand will pass through hospice care in their lifetime.
Despite this, 45% of the annual cost of keeping the service alive comes from fundraising.
The past year has seen a number of reasons close to me that made really appreciate just how important this institution is.
The goal of hospice care is to support people with a life limiting illness to live every moment in whatever way is important to them, their family and whanau.
It is where so many people in New Zealand who are suffering in the final stages of cancer go to be cared for. In NZ, 23,000 people are diagnosed with Cancer every year.
I’m terrified of cutting my hair. I love my hair. But the anxiety I have about getting shorn like a sheep is nothing in comparison to the stress of losing a loved one. This fundraiser is my little bit to try and contribute to the care for those people, and I’m hoping you’ll get behind me. Every cent helps 🙂
