My 2 sisters are making a BALD statement this weekend
More than 2500 shavees will be making A BALD STATEMENT @ Hair for Hope 2012 main event this weekend and my two sisters are among these shavees.
Into its 10th consecutive year, Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is organising Hair for Hope (HfH) on 28 and 29 July 2012, from 11am to 7pm (Saturday) and 11am to 6pm (Sunday) at VivoCity.
Through this symbolic gesture of shaving bald, CCF aims to:
1. Create awareness of childhood cancer in Singapore
2. Show children with cancer and their families that they are not alone in their fight against cancer
3. Tell children with cancer that it is OK to be bald
4. Raise funds to help children with cancer and their families
5. Build a community of support for children with cancer and their families
Hair for Hope is the only head-shaving event in Singapore that serves to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. Every shaven head represents an understanding by an individual of the ordeals that a child with cancer is subjected to.
All funds raised will contribute to the $4.5 million needed annually to fund critical programmes and services for CCF’s beneficiaries.
It was totally spontaneous that both my sisters would be going for this. They did not even discuss beforehand and the next moment, both signed up for it.
Here are the links to their individual shavee page.
Besides donating to the CCF via my sisters in person like what most of us family and friends did, you could also support them by donating to the CCF online or leaving words of encouragement for them.
