Support CANSA this World Cancer Day by Joining the #NoHairSelfie Campaign
Join the global #NoHairSelfie movement by showing solidarity with cancer patients around the world and shave your head on World Cancer Day – February 4, 2016!
CANSA is partnering, for the first time, with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation for the 2016 #NoHairSelfie Campaign, to raise awareness of cancer on World Cancer Day – read more…
Become a #NoHairSelfie Fundrazor
Fundrazors are invited to shave their head FOR REAL at their local CANSA Care Centre (or hairdresser) on World Cancer Day, calling on their contacts to make a donation towards CANSA’s work (via their fundrazing page), and sharing their #NoHairSelfie on social media platforms, in order to raise awareness of cancer. Register and create your fundraising page here…
Fundrazors can also shave VIRTUALLY using the #NoHairSelfie App, uploading their VIRTUAL #NoHairSelfies to their fundrazing pages and motivating their contacts to make a donation towards CANSA’s work.
