greatest-shaveOkay, let’s be clear, I’m not talking about me! I am way too vain to shave my head. Especially since I have a bit of a hair fixation.

You may have heard of the annual charity fundraiser, The World’s Greatest Shave, whereby certain generous individuals agree to have their hair publicly shaved off in order to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Funds raised go to providing support and care for patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma, and other blood related disorders. The Leukaemia Foundation also funds vital research into treatments and cures.

This year one of my closest friends, Michelle has pledged to shave off her long hair to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. This is a bold and generous act for anyone, but especially for a woman with such a lovely head of hair.

Therefore, I am forwarding the following link in the hope that some of you would be kind enough to sponsor Shelly in the World’s Greatest Shave.shelly-for-greatest-shave2

It’s a worthy cause, all donations are tax deductible, and every dollar counts. It’s also a great way to support an amazing woman as she does something completely selfless for a cause she believes in.

Her registered participant page is: HERE

I have attached a photo of Shelly as she is now. Anyone who donates and would like to see the finished result after March 13th, email me at and I’ll send you the post-shave photo.

Thanks for your time and I hope you consider joining me in supporting the Leukaemia Foundation.

Yes, she is amazing and I can’t believe she has the guts to do this, so I’m happy to support her all the way.

I too have registered to shave my hair off. In the first week I have managed to raise over $800.00. Please share this link to raise awareness of this blood disease…..
