My Advice to others: Just cut it! Your hair will grow back, but in the meantime, you're potentionally making a sick child smile and boosting their confidence. All Kids deserve that!
Iv'e always wanted to grow my hair to donate to a child that is battling cancer. Just being able to contribute to giving a child a reason to smile and feel confident absolutely warms my heart.
At the age of 6 Ava saw a story online where a sick child was being bullied at school for not having any hair. It made her very sad and felt so bad for them. I explained wigs are very expensive and that people can donate their hair to make wigs for kids with cancer. She decided then to grow her hair and donate it to help sick kids have nice wigs so they wouldn't feel sad or get bullied at school for looking different. She grew her hair for 2 years, and now loves her new hair.
"I wanted to raise money & donate my hair to care for other children, I thought it would be a nice thing to & I hope it makes a sick child happy"
I wanted to cut my hair and thought why not help kids that need it more than I do
Fraser's mum commented "From a very young age Fraser had the most beautiful hair, people would often comment on it. we decided that when we did cut it off it should go to someone else who would love it as much as we did. We decided that Fraser would get his new smart haircut for the start of kindy. He is very proud of himself and hopes it will make a difference to another kid. We were also blown away with his fundraiser, he smashed it and we are so grateful to our friends and families donations, helping to make life just a little easier for another family going through a really tough time. "
Cut his long hair to help sick kids!
11 years ago I inspired by a friend of mine who shaved her head (while heavily pregnant) to raising money for charity. Since then doing something brave like that become one of my bucketlist.
I am blessed with three beautiful and healthy kids and often my heart breaks when I hear/read/see kids with cancer or other medical conditions. Even more heart breaking when the family breaks apart because of financial difficulties, relationship hardship or other challenges.
I also want to teach my kids to be grateful for their health, to be kind to others who are less fortunate than them, to be confident not depend on their looks and see the life is so much more than themselves.
I wanted to find a different way of where I could help make a difference in the lives of children diagnosed with leukaemia. I was approached by a fellow work colleague asking me to donate my hair as his daughter has donated twice now but to a different cause. I googled all the different links but the one website that hit home more was kids with cancer foundation. I lost my mum to Acute Lymphocytic leukaemia at a young age of 34 when I was aged 5 So I thought what more a better way to give back to such a great cause than this.
I was inspired to cut my hair because “My auntie went through breast cancer and had wigs when I was a little girl - I was always inspired by her! Being mother to a little boy, I want to show him the gift of giving!”
Well I’ve been planning on cutting my hair for a few months now and I’m one day my mum suggested to me that maybe I could donate it and I really loved the idea and the more I thought about it and looked into it the more I wanted to do it.
Throughout my life I have been a regular hospital patient and I wanted a way to give back, so I decided to donate my hair and fundraise with wigs for kids. I wanted to help bring back a child’s confidence and give them a reason to smile.
Jasmine decided 9 months ago that she was going to grow her hair and donate it to children who needed it due to hair lose.
Cutting her hair for Kids with Cancer!
My name is Olivia I'm 16 and I chopped off my ponytail. Personally, I have not been affected by cancer but I know that it doesn't hurt to be kind. Doing a simple act such as cutting your hair and donating it can give someone happiness in a time that can be a great struggle for them. If more people start participating in acting kind we will have more smiles spreading across the world. Kindness is at the cost of nothing.

Hope my hair help give someone confidence and hope that things will get better.
I first saw people suffer ages ago, and I hated seeing people suffer because of them not having any hair. I wanted people who couldn’t grow their hair to feel pretty in the inside and out, so I waited around 2 years to be able to take such action. I would like to continue helping in any way possible and make such differences! ??
Emmerson decided to donate her hair because she is constantly told that she has beautiful hair and wanted to share it with someone who is going through a hard time. This is one small way she can help. She hopes she can brighten the day of another red haired girl who might not have been able to find a red haired wig.

I became extremely ill at the end of 2019. Luckily, I recovered well within only a couple of weeks. During my stay in the ICU at the Children's Hospital I saw many sick children, one beautiful little girl in particular stood out to me because she had no hair, then I began to notice more and more kids who didn't have hair. I asked mum lots of questions, she explained as best she could and I decided I wanted to help.

“Lately was thinking how I could help people in need, but I work a lot and couldn't find the time to do it, or have enough money to donate.
One day I came across with this video on instagram, this little girl getting her wig and that made me very happy and emotional. I got inspired and decided to donate my hair.
I lost my gramma for cancer and I could do anything to help people going through this especially kids.
Donating my hair felt very special and made me very happy ? “

Beautiful Sisters :)
Lila decided almost 2 years ago that she wanted to do something to help kids with cancer after seeing something on TV and decided she would grow her hair long so it could be made into wigs for kids with cancer. Her little sisters love doing the same things she does so it didn’t take any convincing for them to want to grow their hair to help too!

Wanted to make a child feel special
Lexi was inspired by her friend April that battled cancer a few years ago, and how she had wigs donated to her. Remembering her friend, Lexi jumped at the chance to help other kids in their battle. Although she was nervious about cutting her hair, she knew what other kids were going through with cancer was alot harder.
Gorgeous 6 year old Adele making a difference.
In August 2020 my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. The last 6 months have been an emotional roller coaster watching her go through a major surgery, chemotherapy and now totally rocking her bald head and I’m so incredibly proud of her. My sister and I both have young families (3 children each) and we cannot even begin to imagine the pain and suffering the children and families go through when a child is diagnosed with cancer.
She is 6 and decided to cut her hair to send it in to make wigs.
I spent a lot of time in hospital when I had a bone infection and met lots of fantastic kids who had lost their hair. Once I was better I was inspired to donate my hair so that if they wanted a wig they could have one, so I grew my hair for a long time. I’m so happy to donate my hair, and hope it makes someone happy.
We pray for the healing of all the sick children and hope that my fundraiser can make a difference to the sick kids and their families.
I just love to do little things here and there that can really help someone especially kids going through a really tough time.
Started growing my hair on 6month campervan trip around australia 4 years ago. Recently fell and broke my wrist. Having difficulty caring for my long hair, so it got the chop, for a good cause.

My name is Olivia and I’m 7yrs old. When I found out that some children have cancer and lose or can’t grow their own hair, I decided to donate my hair to help make wigs for kids in need. I’ve been growing my hair for two years and Im super excited and happy to donate it. I had 25cm cut off and love my new style. I also raised $1340.

Making a difference in kids lives!
It wasn't initially my plan to donate my hair, all I knew was that it was time for a hair cut. However, after doing some thinking, I realised, I didn't want my hair to go to waste and it wouldn't take much to help make a kid's day. It was definitely worth it and I know I'll be doing it again!
Nothing would make me happier than bringing a smile on a child's face.
After not cutting his hair for a couple of years.. 2 years ago he decided he wanted to grow his hair and have it cut for wigs for kids with cancer.

I decided to donate my hair for the kids, it's always for the kids. :)
My story is, after 2020, I feel I am so lucky and I want to do something for others.
I decided to donate some hair as Cancer has affected several members of my family and I hope that the wig made from my hair will make a child with cancer feel better about themself.
I sent my hair last Thursday and I just loved the whole experience.
I just thought that if it was me in that situation, I'd want access to a wig in my natural hair colour, and I am well aware that red hair is rare in the first place, let alone natural and unchanged red hair, so I just thought that I would donate my hair, in the same way I'd want someone to do for me if I was suffering from cancer.
Amber & Helen Goodstart QLD
I had been thinking I had more hair than I needed and this sparked the idea that if I grew it as long as I could we could donate my hair to kids in need. When I found your website I knew this was the path we would take as it seemed more personal, less commercialised and like our goal to donate our hair to children would actually come into fruition.
Was thrilled her hair was finally long enough and is starting the growing process anew!
I am 23 years old and donated a large length of hair just over a year ago and set to growing my hair again to donate again to help a young child feel beautiful again ? it is the least I can do to by doing my part every few years and I endeavour to continue doing this for years to come ??
Proudly donating his lovely long hair to a child needing to feel more confident :)
Chopped her hair for her Birthday to help a sick child.
This is the second time I donated my hair, the previous one was in Argentina, the country where I came from back in Dec 2018. Since then I kept my hair growing to be able to donate 35 cm. This hair has the strength of a pregnancy and it's full of joyful moments with my baby girl. I just feel this is a way to be grateful, I hope this makes a kid to feel stronger, happier and full of the love from us and the supporters.

Was so excited about cutting her hair that she had been growing for a year!
Grew her hair for the last 5 years and was so pleased to donate it for Children less fortunate.
To me, if you have the minimum length of hair to donate, go for it! It is such a small act but means absolutely everything for a young child with cancer. I started growing my hair out in 2019 and had 40cm of hair cut off in October 2021. By donating my hair, I want a child to feel extra special and bring some more happiness to their life

Hi I’m a 14 year old who wants to care for others and I hope that sending apart of me can help others who want it more than me. I really hope this can help someone cope through hard times.
Emma's mum wrote... It was a great thing that she was so onboard when I mentioned it to her a few months ago if she would like to donate her hair. As she is doing calisthenics and had to keep her long hair for the competition, as soon as that was over for this year, we cut the hair the following day. Then they had their Christmas party with the club few days after and it was a great conversation starter and I think it might encourage other girls to do the same.
Super proud of her!
Also, I would like to say thank you to the organisation for your amazing work!
Made her mum super proud chopping off her beautiful long hair to donate to a child in need.

The 15th of January 2021 will forever and always be embedded in my brain, it was the day Emilia was diagnosed with T-Cell ALL (leukemia).
The reason why I did it was I would love to help anyone I can and I couldn’t think of anything more heartwarming then providing a child with a smile

Simari wanted to donated her hair to help a child that needs it more then she
“When Alexia found out children could get really sick and result in them losing their hair from treatment or illness, she learnt that her hair could be donated to be made into wigs for them. She really wanted to help them in any way she could, so she cut her hair, donated it and fundraised along the way.”
I had never cut my hair (except for tiny trims) since I was a baby. As I got older, it got more difficult to look after. At last I decided to cut it. I had heard about donating hair for wigs for children with cancer and I thought that was something wonderful I could do with my hair, so I did! And now I love my new shorter hair.
I hope my hair finds a lovely home x
Making a difference in a Child's life.
I wanted to have my hair cut and to give it to children who were sick and needed it.
knowing that other kids who are already struggling with cancer sometimes lose their hair, Mia felt that it wasn't fair for them and she wanted to donate her hair because it will always grow back. She is very excited with her new hairstyle and hopes that by donating her hair she can bring a smile to someone elses face.
I have been growing it for over 7 years, always with the plan to donate it one day. I put it off for a long time, because I'd grown attached to it, but once I actually looked into how to donate to the Kids With Cancer Foundation, I realised someone else needed my hair much more than I did.
Ayla decided to donate her hair for wigs 4 kids after a friend of her Mum's was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and the treatment made her hair fall out. Ayla realised there were kids that were loosing their hair and decided to donate her locks to help them feel a little bit better about everything. Her surf club got completely behind her campaign as they were very tired of asking Ayla to tie her hair up for her training in the ocean ?
Poppy decided in march last year she wanted to grow her hair to donate it to help make a wig for another child. She decided this as every 3 or so months she has to go to he Children's Hospital at Randwick because of her back. She has been in a back brace since she was 7yrs old and gets to chat to many other kids at the hospital.
Wanted to make a child feel special!
Darcy just turned 5 and wanted to help others for her birthday.
“18 months ago I learnt it was possible to donate my long locks to create wigs for people with cancer. I, like many of you, have lost loved ones to cancer. So I instantly decided this was something I had to do! I believe that no one's life deserves to be cut short by cancer, especially not children. Therefore, I cut my long locks, raised money and spread awareness for the incredible Kids With Cancer Foundation.”

I saw this video one day, and it explained what happens when people get cancer. That’s when I found out people lose their hair as well. When I realised this, I wanted to help someone who had lost their hair by donating mine.
Donating my hair has always been something I’ve wanted to do, and I feel very sorry for kids who don’t have hair due to having cancer treatment. So, I decided to chop it off and make a child’s dream come true. I guarantee my hair will go to someone very well deserving!

Donated her hair so she could do something for other children that going through tough times at the moment.
I chose to participate because I've always wanted to donate my hair when it was long enough so a young child doesn't have to feel embarrassed or self-conscious while fighting such a harsh battle. I wish to make them comfortable and feel as normal as possible. So at the end of March when I was diagnosed with a brain tumour I knew it was the time to give a child the long healthy hair I spent forever growing before I destroyed it with my own treatment.
Hopefully this helps to bring a smile to a child’s face with one of your wigs during a very difficult time.

I was keen to help out! I decided to donate it after watching my dog battle bone cancer in his skull. It was hard watching the side effects and what he ended up going through from the cancer in my fur baby I can’t imagine what it is like to be going through it as a kid! Anything to help those kids smile and enjoy there life.

Donated her hair to make a difference :)
When I was in primary school one of my close friends was diagnosed with cancer and had to shave her head. She was away from primary school for 3 years. She didn’t have the chance to have a wig and I would love for someone like her to have one now. She was a bit self-conscious. She is now in high school, with long hair and doing well. I admired her and wanted to do something for someone else and these very brave people. My friend’s mum was also recently diagnosed with cancer and lost her hair, she has been in severe isolation from the start of high school. To whoever gets my hair I love you and you are beautiful and it may not matter but I am proud of you.
