Leukaemia Foundation


Year 7 student Zarli Sanders, 12, made the kindest of cuts on Tuesday, cutting her hair to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. "I’ve wanted to donate my hair to help other people for a long time. A lot of people comment on my colour of hair so I thought it would be cool to donate it to make people smile," said Zarli."I have been busy growing my hair long since kindergarten so that I can donate my ponytail to help make a wig for a cancer patient. I decided that I would try and raise money at the same time."With a target of $560, she has already reached $2200 in online donations, thanks to a donation of $1000 from the Port Macdonald Fishing Club.While $560 can give a regional family a free place to stay close to treatment in the city, for one week, $2000 can aid future breakthroughs by funding a major blood cancer research project for one week.

The Portland Secondary College student sat in front a large crowd as Tamara Wilson from Miziti Hair slowly cut off the 30cm pony tail, before showing it to Zarli."I’m both excited and very nervous right now," said Zarli holding the majority of her hair in her hands."I appreciate everyone’s support an encouragement.
