I am cutting 15 inches off my hair for the second time to donate to Zichron Menachem, a charity that makes wigs for people who have lost their hair. As you can see my hair is extremely long and I want to donate it to someone in need of a wig!

I am also fundraising for Jewish Women's Aid for this event, a Domestic Abuse charity supporting Jewish women who are survivors of domestic or sexual violence. They offer a sexual violence helpline, a domestic abuse helpline, practical and emotional support, counselling, children's therapy, and more. The work JWA does is incredible for the Jewish community and it inspires me to fight for the rights of women and girls every day.

Whatever you can donate will provide support for a woman who is a survivor of abuse - and it is even more crucial now because so many more women have become survivors during lockdown. Thank you!
