Hair Today Gone Tomorrow Hair Appeal


Hair Today Gone Tomorrow hair appeal on Thursday 20th May, I am getting my head shaved to raise the profile of Matter of Trust and raise money in aid of WWF and would really appreciate your support: http://www.justgiving.com/hairappeal


All hair from the salon and my head shave will be used to help fight the oil slick that is threatened near the Gulf of Mexico. The hair collected at Johnsons Hairdressers, 64 Cathays Terrace, Cardiff will be sent to Matter of Trust a charity which links up recycled goods with causes that need them.


The Trust is co-coordinating the collection of hair, fur and tights which are needed to make booms and mats to mop up the oily mess spewing out of the sunken Deepwater Horizon oil platform which is lying on the seabed of the Gulf of Mexico. Hair and fur will typically soak up around four to six times their weight in oil.


Not only will the hair be put to good use any donations will help the WWF with their work to protect endangered wildlife and environments. Any donations would be gratefully appreciated.

I am encouraging students and residents to appeal to their hair salon to participate in sending hair to Matter of Trust and also shave their heads/have their hair cut to help.
Johnsons hairdressers is giving everyone the opportunity to join in the campaign by offering free head shaves Thursday 27th May. Anyone interested should contact me (02920871808) or the hairdressers directly.
Appeal and petition your hair salon to participate in sending hair to Matter of Trust. I have a template letter you can use.
Any hair salon that would like details can contact Kieran who will be writing to hair salons across Cardiff with a ‘hair’ appeal.
Many thanks
Kieran x x
