Inspiring Aussie kids shaving in 2019

The World’s Greatest Shave Campaign is back for 2019 and is expecting more children and schools to participate than ever before!

Generations of Aussies have grown up with this beloved event and the memories of shaving and colouring hair are set to continue this year. There has been increases in kids participating over the years and it’s no surprise with the likes of Millie Bobby Brown (who plays Eleven in award winning series Stranger Things) shaving her head aged 12 in 2016.

7-year-old Taylor Mattschoss from South Australia will be shaving her head on the 15th of March to show a sense of solidarity for those living with blood cancer. She has already far exceeded her target of $560, raising $900 so far. To help support Taylor and read more about her story click here.

Skyelaih Randall, a year 2 student at Nuriootpa Primary in South Australia has been wanting to sign up to ‘The World’s Greatest Shave’ campaign since she was 3 years old, having seen a TV segment about childhood cancer. She said:

“I saw that some people on TV that had no hair, they had cancer…mummy explained it to me, so I wanted to cut my hair”

Her blonde locks currently reach below her waist and so little Skyelaih will have her hair cut into a bob on the 6th March and is aiming to raise $1000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. The hair will be put in wigs and the wigs will be donated to people with cancer. To find our more information and help support Skyelaih reach her target then click here.
