WIGS FOR KIDS COMPETITION - entries close Nov 11 2017
Win a gorgeous human hair wig! AAAF is running a competition to give away one human hair wig worth $2000! If you’re under the age of 18, have alopecia, and live in Australia, you can go in the running to win this amazing prize! All you have to do is share your alopecia story with us. Write your story or create a video, then email to us at media@aaaf.org.au along with a photo of you to go in the running. You don’t need any fancy cameras or special effects to make a video – something simple at about 2 minutes in length will be just fine. Here’s a video from AAAF Support Ambassador Stef for some inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO5ND12ko7U
Your story will be featured on our Facebook page and during Alopecia Awareness Week, one lucky winner will be randomly selected on November 13th. The winner’s story will also feature on the AAAF website under our Wigs For Kids program.
About the Wig:

JuliaWilsonJulia: Having Alopecia doesn’t have to be just bearable or just manageable. It will be part of you, but you can move on and it will not define you!
CatherineGrantCatherine - 21: Whether I have hair or not I am always thankful for what I have, rather on concentrating on what I don't have.
HeidiAHeidi: Alopecia isn’t something we should feel embarrassed or ashamed about.
stefStef: 16, telling her story through a poem.
camCam O'Rourke: 12, I first got AA in early 2010. It was a massive shock because it started off as just one tiny patch, and in about four weeks, it had all gone, apart from a couple of tiny patches.
MichelleMichelle: hair loss is something to be embraced. I'm ready for openness; I'm ready for people to be challenged; and I'm ready for bald women to feel empowered. I don't want to spend my life merely surviving as a bald woman. I'd much prefer to live.
SarahPSarah P: I’ve had ups and downs, I’ve been self conscious and I’ve been brave. I don’t know where I will be this time next year, or what my head will look like. But it’s an adventure, and its all part of my story.
JamesMillerJames Miller: Imagine you are 10 years old, and one morning you wake up to find you have a bald patch at the back of your head the size of a golf ball,this is what happened to me.
StellaStella 10 …..I’m VERY happy now in my school and I have a great family and friends and I’m happy to live a very bald and happy life!!!!!
Alex_WebAlex: Alison tells her story on son Alex ……We have a resilient, positive, strong willed young man. He may not have hair but he is healthy, wealthy and wise otherwise in his life – That’s the greatest gift of all!
