Lots of people do this so.. really i suppose its nothing new.. But for the last 9 years or so i've been gifted with a rather abundant head of hair and have enjoyed its flowyness and length for nearly a decade.

today, I decided I'd shave my head for two reasons:

1. for the absolute liberation of no longer having a high maintenance head of hair that requires constant brushing out of ones face

2. To donate my 20" tail to cancer patients that have lost their hair while undergoing chemo treatments.

in so many ways.. this was SUCH a liberating experience. plus my neck is and up back are no longer stiff from carry 4-5 lbs of hair

If you happen to be a hairily endowed individual (no pubes) seeking to go under the scissors, then absolutely check out this site and make a difference for someone undergoing a very terrifying and traumatic experience!

Here's a canadian site for donating your locks.

and now pics! cause it did happen!

Before



After



I'll add that my wife was pretty excited to see me with short hair for the first time.. ever in the 8 years we've been together

now.. how to open this up as a discussion?

Have you ever done fun stuff like this or know anyone who has for Good causes?

or perhaps you know someone that has underwent chemo, and was happy to receive a coolass wig by a charitable donation?

share your stories!

Good job mate! My friend had a giant afro, he shaved it and raised over $3000. It's a good cause

Props to you, man! I still have my hair from when I cut it off last year, but I am not sure that it is quite long enough to send in (probably is though).

I could never part with my hair. Not even if the money was going directly to me You're a far better person than I'll ever be bro.

But...

liberating experience

That has to be the single most pretentious phrase in the English language.

Both short and long hair look great on you tbh. I know how liberating it feels to get rid of your long hair. I kept my tail and I'm also considering giving it to a cancer charity that makes wigs for patients that can't afford them.
