A Hair Raising Scheme

20 June 2017



Hello!

Tuesday's come around again so quickly, hasn't it? Today's post is a little different, and has a loose connection to travel.

You all know that I'm planning on going travelling at the beginning of next year, and you also know that I'm in the process of trying to save some money in order to make the most of the time I'll be away and, well... I've set up a go fund me page.


Now, I'm not asking you to donate just so that I can live a life of luxury, of course not, so I wanted to let you know why I've made this page, and how you can help.

So. I have extremely long hair. It's currently sitting at the bottom of my back. Like, give it another year and I'll probably be sitting on it. IT'S. SO. LONG. And I love it so much. I've been growing it for 8 years, after I cut it to my chin when I was 15 and regretted it so much. I vowed never to get it cut short ever again... Which brings us to now.


I'll be donating my hair to the Little Princess Trust, so that children battling cancer or hair loss will (hopefully) be able to wear a wig made out of my hair.
I've set a target of £600, which I don't actually expect to raise, but I figured that it's worth a shot.

Additionally, I feel awful trying to raise all this money for myself, so, if I raise over the £600, I want to be able to donate something to charity - and I've decided that that charity will be the mental health charity in my home town. They helped me with free councelling last year, and I've love to be able to give something back.




I'm planning to cut my hair in a month or so's time (which is sad because it means I won't have long hair for my holiday to Lanzarote :[ ) but anything you can put towards achieving this goal would be greatly appreciated! I've worked out that if everybody who followed my Twitter were to donate £1.50 I'd easily make that goal!


I'm also going to have a think about some other ways that I could earn some more dolla to put into my travel savings, so if you aren't able to donate, please leave a comment down below with any suggestions for me!


I hope you have a fantastic time in the sunshine and until next time, be excellent to each other.
