Worlds Greatest Shave

The World's Greatest Shave 2018 is on this March 14th - 18th. For 20 years now, people have been shaving, cutting and colouring their hair all in the name of Cancer.

Do you dare shave, cut, colour your hair to raise eyebrows, awareness and as much money as possible for the Leukaemia Foundations World's Greatest Shave?

If not, do you know someone who is taking part in this awesome event and are you supporting them?

It's an intense week of hair-raising fun to promote, educate and help fund this awe-inspiring treatment process. And, it is a process. From diagnosis through treatment and recovery, cancer patients need all the support and medical expertise we can muster.

Money raised funds blood cancer research and free support through the Leukaemia Foundation. The Leukaemia Foundation is the only Australia-wide charity dedicated to the care and cure of people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.

School Groups.
Schools, workplaces and clubs can participate

So many people take part. Millions more support their fundraising efforts and the Leukaemia Foundation has the most awe-inspiring ways to help you participate in this year's World's Greatest Shave. Go to their website. Be inspired. See all the amazing apps, fundraising pages, shave locations and other ways you can be part of this year's event.

Before and After - WGS
The before and after shot

It's not too late to cut or colour your own locks. You can fundraise for months after the event. There are heaps of tips and ideas on how to fundraise. Earn fundraising badges, sell from the online WGS store, ask everyone to sponsor you. Have a workplace morning tea. (There's even a recipe for chinless cookies that you can sell for $2).

Before, Worlds Greatest Shave
Before ...

Even if you are not shaving or colouring, you can still have a workplace morning tea and add a group donation from your work, school or club to a participant's fundraising. Everyone can continue to fundraise for as long as they like! If they would like to add the money to an account of someone they know, they simply look up that person's name on the website or hit donate on the same webpage and this goes to the total funds raised.

If you're not keen on a buzz cut or a bit shy of bright coloured hair, still go to the website and check out event days and dates nearest you and go along and support others.
Cheer on at one of the events or sponsor someone. There is so much you can do and every little bit of support you offer adds oodles to the smiles of cancer patients and their families.

Yes, you can grow and shave your beard!
