Funds Raised

You're doing something incredible by donating your hair to Variety, thank you!

We’re inspired by you and others like you, who go above and beyond for kids in need and their families. We reckon that your friends and family would be pretty inspired by your commitment too.

So we’d love them to have the chance to back your effort. It’s really quick to set up an online fundraising page, click the ‘Fundraise’ button above, and you’ll be surprised by their generosity. Or why not hold an event to celebrate your big chop? 

How does Hair with Heart work?

When we receive donations of hair, we send it to specialised wig makers who make wigs for those who have lost their hair due to a medical condition. We’re given money for the hair which goes directly back into Variety’s programs, helping Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.

So more than one person will benefit from your hair donation!

Please note due to privacy and logistical limitations, we are unable to track the individual who will receive your hair.

Variety grants wigs

Variety grants wigs to kids that have lost their hair due to a medical condition, for example, alopecia.

Wigs give these kids more confidence and improve their self-esteem, so they can feel themselves again.

Wigs cost families up to $6,000 and last only 1 - 2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth.
