Embrace Alopecia Wigs Competition

AAAF understands there are many different ways to #EmbraceAlopecia and that many prefer to do so while wearing a beautiful wig. But wigs can be expensive, and they don't last forever.

That's why we're offering the chance for three (3) people to win $2000 each towards the wig (or wigs!) of their choice. Any type of wig, for anyone with any type of Alopecia Areata.

All you need to do is tell us your alopecia story and how you Embrace Alopecia while wearing a wig, and provide a photo of your gorgeous self. Super simple! You'd be an April Fool not to apply!
Please send your photo, story and your contact details to info@aaaf.org.au before midnight on the 15th of April. We'll be drawing the winners on the 22nd of April at our Rock climbing Day in Sydney. Winners will be contacted directly and announced on our Facebook and website on the 22nd. Remember to include your full name, email and a phone number with your application so we can let you know if you win.

Terms and conditions apply :
Winners will be asked to write a brief testimonial after receiving their wig.
No age limits apply, this offer is open to anyone living in Australia with any form of Alopecia Areata.
Monies are provided directly to the wig provider of your choice- AAAF is not able to provide cash directly to an individual.

Please note that submitting your story and photo indicates you give permission to AAAF to share them to our website and social media. Your full name will not be distributed.

There is $6000 up for grabs and only two weeks to put your name down. Don't miss out!

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!
