Hair Cut for Mental Health Charity "Mind"

£75 of £85 goal

Raised by 11 people in 1 month

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of CARRICK MIND and every donation will help.

The hair cut will be happening on Friday 17th of May, part of Mental Health Week. 

I'm having my hair cut to support Mental Health Week in May, the theme is Body image and for me (any many people I know) Hair styles are one of the ways that people do this. 

Mental Health affects so many people of every age to a lesser or greater degree, but many people don't know where to turn or even if it's okay to talk about it. Something as simple as a stressful day at work to the extream of depression and nervous breakdowns. 

2 years ago both me and my sister suffered a nervous brake down to different degrees, each of us reacted differently but we have always talked about things. I changed my job as part of my recovery but the affects can linger for years after, random panic attacks, low days with no reason, and a combat with hopelessness. Talking about these things is really important because you feel so alone when these times hit, but the truth is, you're not.  
Likewise supporting someone going through those times is hard. I've seen both my parents go through different times, from depression and not being able to leave the house, to hormonal changes and feeling of going mad.

This is one small thing I can do, but it's part of many events i'm working on with colleagues at work to help raise awareness of this issue and support Carrick in what they do for our area. 

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

As per suggestion, on Friday 17th when the deed is to happen. I will get it live streamed to Facebook... this is quite a scary idea for me but i'm sure it'll be fine... =/

Hair appointment is 11am so I will start posting images before then and hope to do the live bit between 11.30 and 12.

Need the hair washed and dried before the cut can happen.

Wow!!! Thank you all so much.
So I've smashed my target £100 at work so this is just so amazing. So if I can reach over £50 online I've almost hit my next marker of £200.

Everyone has been saying what a great cause some have never heard of it before...

The topics that Mental Health touches on is HUGE! and we just don't talk about it, which is silly. These things affect young and old, families and single people.

Working together, sharing these experiences is super important.

So far I've been able to raise a further £50-£70 from work colleagues, which is just amazing.
My hair dresser, @hellcathair.penzance, has been amazing too. We're going to send the cut hair to another charity called "Little Princesses" where they makes wigs for children.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
