SHAVE FOR RESEARCH INTO ALL CANCERS
You don't have to be a scientist to play a part. All you need is a pair of clippers.
Donate your hair
If you’ve been growing your locks especially for your cut or shave, you may consider giving them away! We are unable to take hair donations however, so long as your luscious locks meet the requirements, the team at Variety Australia will take your ponytail and use it to create a wig for a child in need!

Six year old Josh, deciding to test his hairdressing skills on himself, accidentally cut a lock of hair from his forehead.
Josh and mum Rebecca were then left with a dilemma – what were they to do to try and cover the new “hairstyle”?
After a little bit of thought it was Josh who decided to raise money for cancer research by shaving his head!
The head shave took place on the last day of the school term, raising $450 for ACRF with the wonderful support of Josh’s school, friends, family and local community.
Big thanks Josh!
At 29, Toby was diagnosed with rectal cancer. His beard had become a comfort for him through his journey battling cancer.
After being cleared of cancer, Toby decided it was time to shave his beard and give back the support he had received.
On Australia Day of 2016, Toby held a BBQ, raffle and shaving ceremony at his local bowls club. With the support of his family, friends and local community, he was able to raise over $10,000 towards helping #endcancer.
We thank Toby for his amazing efforts and wish him all the best in his recovery.
