Rachel and I would like to say an enormous Thank you to everyone that supported her when she cut her hair and for the very generous donations to her hair fund.
She raised R4693!!! I am so very proud of her, I think she looks beautiful. The short hair suits her little pixie face. It has made swimming everyday much easier without so much long wet hair to deal with.
An enormous thank to to : Tanya, Andre, Karin, Tamsin(8), Jenni, Aiden(7) & Lauryan, My Mom, My Dad, Gavin, My 2 sisters; Jenni and Sarah, my Granny(94), Carle, Camilla, Amanda, Clare, Helen, Nadia, Lucy, Amanda. I really hope I have not forgotten anyone.
Thank you so much
For those who did not see the pictures on Face Book or Instagram here is the day she had it cut
Before feeling very nervous
Debbie the wonderful hair dresser, recommended by a swimming mom, donated the hair cut and was amazing with Rachel, she did plaits around her head first to get the most length.
All cut off
Afterwards with her hair
We went to the Cansa Association in Mowbray Cape Town last week and handed the hair over to them, we had to wait for all the donation to come in and then for all the public holidays to be over. They made a fuss of her and we took a few pictures in their fountain garden
If anyone wants to donate hair or know more about it here is the CANSA kindest cut info
I have no idea if we ever get to know who gets her hair, I hope so but I also understand the privacy issues surrounding these things.
