“I have had several family members and family friends who have had cancer, so I decided to raise funds for Cancer Council SA,” Ava says.
“It’s a good cause and gives me a reason to chop off my hair. I have been wanting to cut it but doing it for a cause made it an easier decision.”
In just the first week of signing up to Ponytail Project, Ava raised an incredible $876. Funds that will go a long way in supporting South Australians impacted by cancer.
“I’m really grateful for all the people who have already donated, it happened pretty quickly,” she adds.
“I’m hoping that once Coronavirus (COVID-19) settles down, our hairdresser reopens and I am able to set an actual date, maybe a few more people might donate.
“I’d love to just raise as much as possible—I want to make a difference.”
