Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help Haircuts4Homeless open new projects around the UK.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Haircuts-4-Homeless is a community group where skilled hairdressers give their time free of charge to give haircuts for homeless people in the UK.
Homeless people have many challenges to face, one of them often being a low self esteem. A haircut can have a great effect on someone, giving them a real boost. Its often way down on a homeless persons priorities with what money they have so the service proves to be very popular.
Hairdressers have a known empathy and are great communicators. The industry is known for it's generosity and willingness to help people therefore there are many that would willingly give some of their time and expertise.
There is something very personal about cutting someones hair that can be both enjoyable and therapeutic which is something that many homeless people rarely get.
