Support Balding for Dollars with Hype Hair Studio & Disney on Ice

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Disney on Ice presents Dare to Dream is coming to the Pacific Coliseum November 21-25, 2012. In honor of this show, Disney on Ice is partnering with Hype Hair Studio in Vancouver to support a very worthy local cause, Balding for Dollars.

Disney On Ice is inviting the community to cut and donate their hair at Hype Hair Studio from November 5th to November 9th in order to benefit underserved children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

In appreciation of their kind-hearted gesture, each person donating their hair to charity will receive a free family pack of four tickets valued at $96 (available for the first 50 donations) to a Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream show featuring the debut of Rapunzel and other classic Disney princesses Tiana and Cinderella.

It is estimated that children make up 80% of the donors for Balding for Dollars allowing children to help other children. Balding for Dollars is just one of the campaigns at the BC Children’s Hospital that aims to raise funds and support for the Oncology, Hematology, and BMT (Bone Marrow Transplant) programs.

If you would like to donate at Hype Hair Studio, here are the guidelines:

  • Hair must be clean and dry prior to cutting.
  • The minimum length for hair donations is 8 inches.
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 8 inches.
  • Hair that has been chemically processed cannot be accepted.
  • Grey hair is acceptable.
  • Donations must be tightly bound in a ponytail or secured with rubber bands one at each end of the ponytail and in the middle; and placed in a sealed plastic bag.

Hype Hair Studio is located at 2695 West 4th Ave. Call (604) 732-4973 or book online to make your appointment. Donations can be made between Monday, November 5, 2012 and Friday, November 9, 2012 throughout the day. See Hype Hair Studio’s website for exact times.

Tickets for Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream are now on sale and can be purchased separately.

    My wife and step-daughter did this on Tuesday, the people at Hype were so friendly and supportive. They made sure that they both had really nice cuts by the end of it. While we were there there were another four people having it done. Such a great turn out. We were the 14th people to have it done, so benefited from the tickets, we were entitled to two sets, as they both had it done, but we only accepted the one set, so that someone else could get the chance too.
    We would have done it, however, even if we had been outside the first 50. Such a great cause.
