Bald Angels Big Head Shave
Kia Ora, In November 2015, we attempted to break a Guinness World Record by shaving 400 heads in 1 hour by 10 hairdressers in one location…that’s right here in the Far North. To raise money for this local volunteer-run Charity that looks after kids in our own neighbourhood. WE DID IT!!! Actually 462 brave angels went beautifully bald with us and we are now waiting for Guinness World Record certification.
The Far North has some of the highest rates of rheumatic fever, poverty, suicide and unemployment and that affects our tamariki. We are here to help the professional organisations achieve their aims to protect, serve, and provide for these kids… OUR KIDS. We do that by growing and supplying veggies, collecting and distributing clothes, bedding and xmas gifts, plus providing assistance with necessities and support for families identified by Police, Plunket, Women’s Refuge, Hospice, Food Banks, schools and other valuable social services.
We raised over $60,000.00 (sixty thousand thousand dollars) during this massive Go Bald campaign, and we’d like to thank everyone who sponsored, supported, volunteered and, of course, special thanks to the ANGELS who went Bald for us! We will advise on how the funds are used, but we can guarantee that every cent will be directed into the far North community for our most vulnerable children. First, we will be brainstorming with our partners, the Police, Women’s Refuge, Public Health nurses, and social service agencies that know where the real needs are.
