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.
