World‘s Greatest Shave

Today we had a really special event in school. This year marks the 20th anniversary of “World‘s Greatest Shave”. Since 1998 Australians shave their heads to help beat blood cancer. The idea of the event is to sign up as a participant to get sponsored to shave or color your hair and thereby support Australians with blood cancer like leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. The raised money will provide practical and emotional support and additionally fund the research that will save lives. So today after assembly we all came together in the hall and all the people who got their hair cut or heads shaved were on stage. There were several boys shaving their heads including a boy from my year. Two girls in my year cut of a big part of their hair to donate it and there was one girl that even shaved her head. Later at lunch you could get your hair colored with colorful hair dye and hence donate some money. I have so much respect for the people that participated in this event and I hope that the money raised today will help a lot of Australians to beat cancer.
