Cut Hague's Hair

It has been 25 years since I have had a 'proper' haircut. On the 20th of September 2017, it is all coming off, hair, ponytail, beard, the lot! 

I am doing this in support of 2 charities which are close to my heart.  Motor Neurone Disease and the Leukaemia foundation.  

In 2014, a good friend and colleague of mine was diagnosed with MND. After diagnosis, it wasn't long before he started to deteriorate.  First mobility, then other functions until ultimately he passed away in 2015, leaving behind his wife and daughter Anna.  His daughter is now in year 6 at the school I work at.  

Then in 2017, one of our students in grade 6 was diagnosed with Leukaemia.  Currently she is undergoing treatment at the Royal Childrens and is responding well. I think if a year 6 girl can cope with no hair on her head, then perhaps I can as well!

All funds raised from this haircut will be split 50/50 between MND Australia, and the Leukaemia foundation.  2 very worthy causes which offer the best opportunity to find a cure.

Well it happened!! Things are done and the school and friends present got one hell of a laugh!!

I am amazed by the generosity of the Kennington PS Community, as well as the other friends, family and acquaintances who have put their hands in their pockets for me to do this. You are either amazingly generous, or downright vindictive!!! I choose to believe you are all remarkably generous.

I will leave this page going for a week or so, and then donate the lot to both charities.

Thank you all so much.
Job is done...

Well this is it... less than 24 hours left.

Throughout history, the world has been witness to a number of events which people mark as timestamps of their existence... Armstrong's first hesitant step onto the moon, the assassination of JFK, the day John Lennon was attached on his doorstep in New York City. Often people will clearly remember where they were and what they were doing at the exact time of these events.

Where will you be tomorrow, September 20th at 2:45 pm. Be prepared to add this date and time to those time stamps of your generation!!!

You will be able to say 'I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing the day Hague cut his hair!' Some I am sure will be there to see it personally, others will recall the actions of the time. However, wherever you are, or whatever you are doing, I am hoping you have taken the opportunity to donate for 2 such great causes.

If you haven't, get onto it! If you have, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all know how much fun I am going to have when you don't recognise me the next time we meet!
Thanks one and all.

3 days to go!!!! I am not sure what I am going to look like.. my guess is like an old potato from the bottom of the cupboard!!!

If I don't cut my hair again for another 25 years, I will be nearly 70 years old the next time it gets to this stage in the future.

For all those who have shared etc thanks, but please donate!!!

With just 1 week of needing to spend money on shampoo and conditioner left. Things are looking good. The services of someone to do the job (who isn't an old shearer) has been secured and locked in!

Live streaming of the event is going to happen most likely using Facebook live so those not able to attend cam watch and laugh at me with no hair!! Please, if you haven't done so already, please contribute to help make a difference for these great causes.

Thanks heaps everyone!!
