Buzzing 4 Change is a one day event where participants shave their heads and/or cut their hair to show solidarity with those who suffer from medical hair loss.
WHO WE SUPPORT:
Participants recruit sponsorship and 100% of funds raised are donated to the Oncology Unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). We are asking for a minimum donation/sponsorship of $20 to buzz or cut to help raise even more money for CHOP.
Hair 10 inches and longer will be given to Wigs 4 Kids. We are excited to be supporting their mission to help children and young adults who struggle to deal with social acceptance because of physical appearance.
Hair between 8 - 10 inches will be given to Locks of Love to provide hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the US and Canada suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
HAIR DONATION REQUIREMENTS:
You may pull curly hair straight to measure the minimum 8 inches. Hair needs to be clean, and thoroughly dry. Hair may not be colored or chemically damaged (if unsure, ask your stylist the day of the event).
We'll be hosting the event outside this year, on Merion Green. The campus center main lounge will be used in case of rain.
Tell your friends! Get excited! This is going to be a big year!
