Variety – the Children's Charity has launched a hair-raising fundraiser called "bad hair May" to meet the urgent needs of vulnerable Aussie kids going through tough times.
At this time of physical distancing and home grooming, most of us can admit to having more than just a bad hair day. This month, Variety is asking everyone to turn their bad hair May into good news for Aussie kids who are sick or have a disability.
The concept is simple: choose your style – or ask your friends to choose for you (for a donation) – and get creative with scissors, clippers, colours, bands and sprays on Friday 29 May. Then share your video and selfies on social – however fabulous, freaky or far-out, to show everyone your new do, encourage them to give generously and show the world that your bad hair really can do good things.
Signing up for bad hair May is quick and easy, and it's free to take part. Variety will provide you with your own fundraising page as well as hairstyling inspiration to get you started.
CEO Steve Wakerley said, "The COVID-19 pandemic is stressful for everyone in our community. But for our most vulnerable Aussie kids and their families, the effects could push them over the edge. Parents who have lost their jobs are struggling to care for their kids who are sick or have a disability. Every dollar raised through bad hair May will make a difference to them."
Variety - the Children's Charity believes all Aussie kids deserve a fair go. Variety helps empower children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability to reach their full potential, regardless of ability or background.
