Cutting My Hair For Cancer

£1,983 of £2,500 goal

Raised by 81 people in 11 months
Created June 19, 2018
Hello there, my name is Maya and I am 16 years old. 
Growing up I dreamed of having hair that reached the floor as my mothers did when she was a teen. Throughout my life I have identified with my hair and enjoyed the hours I would take to do it up and the compliments I would receive. 

However within the past few months my priorities in life changed as my mother was diagnosed with an unknown primary cancer. This was a shock to us all as she has always been a beacon of happiness and hope within the family.

After her passing a few weeks ago I decided to donate over 25 inches of my hair to The Little Princesses Trust which provides wigs to children suffering with illnesses preventing hair growth such as cancer. 
The proceeds of this GoFundMe will be donated to St. Marys hospice who helped care for my mother while she was ill and will go towards their aid of cancer patients and their families.

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.
