Why get involved?

World’s Great­est Shave is a pow­er­ful way to uni­fy your school com­mu­ni­ty around an impor­tant cause and is a fun way to edu­cate stu­dents about:

Empa­thy

Walk­ing around with shaved or coloured hair helps stu­dents learn what life might be like for some­one who has gone through can­cer treat­ment and is deal­ing with phys­i­cal changes. It helps them bet­ter under­stand the dif­fer­ence between empa­thy and sympathy.

Phil­an­thropy

Stu­dents who take part often feel more con­nect­ed to the wider com­mu­ni­ty, acknowl­edg­ing the dif­fer­ences between peo­ple and putting oth­ers first. They learn the val­ue of self­less­ness and the beau­ti­ful feel­ing of help­ing those in need.

Empow­er­ment

Stu­dents will feel a huge sense of achieve­ment and suc­cess in com­mit­ting to the chal­lenge, with many describ­ing their expe­ri­ence as empowering.

Has your school braved the shave?
