I am donating 12 inches of my hair for Camp Simcha because It can become a wig for a child having treatment
Camp Simcha exists to support and improve the quality of life for Jewish families in the UK coping with serious childhood illness. It does this by providing a range of 24/7 support services for the parents and powerful positive experiences for the children, including the siblings.
Charity Registration No. 1180646
I have decided to donate 12 inches of my hair to be made into a wig for a child, in aid of Camp Simcha.
Each wig costs around £600-1000 to produce and the charity relies on donations to fund this so I want to donate as much money as I can as well as hair.
Any donations and support would be very much appreciated! Having very short hair for the first time is a daunting prospect so raising money and providing a wig will make it worthwhile.
Every penny raised will go towards giving a child that has lost their hair a wig and hopefully the confidence that goes along with that.
I’ve never been able to be a donor for various reasons, even giving blood you have to be of a certain weight and so on, so being able to give my hair to a child that might make them feel more comfortable in their appearance whilst having treatment and going through such a traumatic journey means the world to me.
It’s something many of us take for granted. For 20 years I’ve had long hair and now the time has come to donate 12 inches. I’m the lucky one as my hair will still be there, whilst the child who receives this wig will be having treatment and it can take a while before their own hair grows through fully. Please help me raise some funds to make this wig happen. Let’s help a child together.
Camp simcha is a charity existing to support children and their families living with serious childhood illness.
I found out about this charity as one of my clients Belinda Glynn works for them and gives art lessons to the children. She gets so much back from being able to do this and I’m hoping to feel like I have changed someone’s situation for the better.
