Last week Thursday, we were invited by Chantelle van der Walt, a student at TUKS University, who planned a Shave-a-thon, along with CANSA, on campus. She strongly believes in our Kindest Cut campaign and donated her ponytail to us last year.

We had a little stall on campus, where people could come and have their hair cut by me. It was a lot of fun, yet it was a pretty emotional day, especially since everyone around me either lost someone to cancer or knew someone who is currently struggling with this disease.

People shared their stories with me while I cut their hair, some people even grew their hair from last year so that they can support this initiative. Love the energy!

Be sure to follow our Kindest Cut Campaign here and learn how you can contribute to this fantastic cause.
