$3,625 towards $10,000
Towards Our Goal
Thanks to you, Be the Rainbow Foundation has been able to help more then 60 families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis. Your support and belief in our mission has kept us going strong as we continue to grow in our impact.
Last year was our inaugural Hair Dair Challenge which raised $10,000 for families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis. Let's do it again, village! Together, we can help GROW our village of supporters and raise funds to help us continue in our mission to help be a rainbow in whatever way we are able for families facing childhood cancer (financial assistance, special gifts, and HOPE). The burden that families face is unimaginable, but if we can help alleviate some of the burden and fill in some of the gaps that a family may experience, we help give them a chance to fight and heal, together as a family. Won't you help us share our blessings with others?
Getting started is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference.
WHAT'S THE CHALLENGE you ask?
Remember--it's just hair! Charlotte lost her hair (twice even!) as do so many children who are fighting cancer. Think of something DARING you might do with your hair (some ideas listed below!) Using the tools provided, create a page, set a fundraising goal, and share your page within your social circles (email, post on socials, etc)! September is childhood cancer awareness month but you can start fundraising right away! When you've hit your goal, DO YOUR HAIR DARE! Feel free to share your HAIR DARE by posting on social media and tag us! You could also tag a friend on social media, daring them to participate in our hair dare challenge! Have fun while helping to share our mission and help us financially increase our impact. YOU MIGHT EVEN WIN A COVETED, CUSTOMIZED BOBBLE HEAD TROPHY of yourself displaying your new hair as a top fundraiser!
We encourage all ages-youth, adults, or somewhere in between! Form a team with a group of friends if you'd like, or coworkers, or your own family and do this together as a team! We would love any and all to join in!
Here are just a few hair dare ideas below but feel free to make it your own!
-color your hair GOLD for childhood cancer awareness month (temporary hair coloring is fine too!)
-color hair any color for a specific pediatric cancer (purple for neuroblastoma, orange for leukemia, gold for sarcoma, grey for brain tumors, blue/turquoise for Charlotte's favorite color, etc)
-shear designs/hair tattoo, buzz, mohawk, or shave it all (we love St. Baldrick's too!)
-rainbow hair colors for Be The Rainbow Foundation
-Hey men--shave your legs or dye your leg hair! Do you have facial hair like a beard or mustache you could shave or dye??
-Go for a brand new hair style/cut! (long locks? cut and donate to Children with Hair Loss or Wigs for Kids!)
-Add hair extensions or clip-ons
Go as BOLD and as DARING as you dare! Or keep it simple and just have some fun! ANYTHING GOES!
When you create a personal fundraiser page today for Be the Rainbow Foundation, you'll help rally your own friends, family, and social networks to support Be the Rainbow Foundation's mission. By becoming a fundraiser for Be the Rainbow Foundation, you will become an ambassador for our mission and create a special opportunity to help us grow our donor base all while raising some funds for these precious families we serve and those we have yet to serve.
