Fundraising challenge:

Hannah got sponsored by her fellow students to shave off all her hair for War Child!

What motivated you to do this challenge?:

I originally found out about War Child from Avril Lavigne's video "Knocking on Heaven's Door" the statistics shocked and upset me. Since then I have tried to donate little amounts of money to the charity but found it difficult to do anything that could make a real difference.

Why did you choose to raise money for War Child?:

I bought myself a War Child T-shirt from a stall at Underage Festival last year, which sparked up a conversation between my friend and I about the children in Iraq, and how there had to be something we could do to help. 10 minutes later we saw a girl pass us with a bald head, my friend jokingly suggested that I should do that to raise money for War Child. I thought it was such an awesome idea and decided there and then that I had to do it.
