I made one kiddie cancer patient happy today because I took the 8-inch haircut for cancer challenge by Matrix Philippines. The hair donations will be used to make wigs for cancer patients of Kythe Ateneo Foundation. I’m really planning on changing my hairstyle before my birthday, and when I learned about the challenge, I just waited for it so that my hair can be put to good use.
The Matrix 8-inch Cut for Cancer Challenge happened yesterday at The Block, SM North Edsa, it was a well-received challenge seeing long-haired girls (and guys too!) line up to donate their hair. It’s a win-win situation because aside from making a big difference to a child’s life because of my hair donation, I got to have a stylish haircut from volunteer hairdressers of David’s Salon. You can give these children an option—an option to live with confidence and expression.
Upon signing up, I was given a ziplock bag and was asked to put my name on it. Then it’s time to sit on the Chair of Change. After bidding adieu to my hair, the hairdresser handed me my cut hair tied with a rubber band to put inside the ziplock bag.
I love my short hair now, thanks to my hairdresser! I forgot to get her name but she’s from David’s Salon Sucat Branch. They volunteered to be part of this cause, what they did is no joke. Imagine, working from 10 am until 6 pm, nonstop because there are a lot of people lining up for the challenge.
Can I still donate my hair after the event?
If you missed the event at Sm North Edsa, you can still donate your hair until November 15, 2014. Just enclose it in a ziplock bag and write your name. Send to:
