I'M RAISING IT FOR CANTEEN

Raise It

June 23rd: Happy Birthday to my Dad

Today is his birthday and marks the end of my fundraising journey for Canteen, Australia. 

In 3.5 weeks, we have raised $4,446 for a charity that supports young Aussies going through some of their toughest times (my original fundraising goal was $2,500, then $3,500). My personal experience with the loss, grief & heartbreak of my dad has inspired me to strive to always give back and to be a better person. I know I have made him proud, and hope I have inspired some people to strive to do the same. 

Today, I donated 42cm of my hair to a Sustainable Salon who will send my hair to be made into wigs for people suffering from medically-induced hair-loss. From 2019, I have committed to donating my hair every 2 years. 

I want to say a special thanks to the beautiful people who donated so generously and supported me with this cause. I am so blessed and eternally grateful for you all. It is really insane what you can achieve when you are surrounded by positive and inspiring people. 

Thank you all again xx

Viv's Gift of Hair 2.0

My story: In December 2016, I lost one of the most important people in my life to cancer, my dad. I was 19 at the time, and it was and still is the most heartbreaking and toughest experience to go through, especially as a young adult. 

In 2019, I cut and donated 40cm of my hair, and raised $1,873.31 for Variety - the Children's Charity.  

This year, I am fundraising for Canteen to help support young Aussies living with cancer, whether it is their own diagnosis, or that of a family member or friend. Canteen offers specialised multidisciplinary health professional support, counselling, connections for peer support, research-based camps and programs, awareness activities, and access to resources for young people across Australia.  

I will also be cutting and donating my hair to Sustainable Salons, who cut and send off donated ponytails to charitable organisations and wig makers for those suffering from medically-induced hair-loss.

Please help me help them, by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. Every donation counts towards changing someone's life, so please spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Viv xx
