helios shave a goddessA good friend of Helios, Binni (who we think resembles the Goddess Red Rye label with that lovely long red hair), is taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation!
In March 2022, we will be holding a World’s Greatest Shave event for Binni’s big day at Helios!
Come along and support Binni as she will be shaving her beautiful hair on this day in front of everyone. There will also be lots of fun things to see and eat for gold coin donations to help raise more money and awareness.
Binni has been growing her hair at a long length for 7yrs. The goal is to be shaving it all off, down to just a few millimeters. Binni’s goal to shave it all off is $20,000.
Sponsoring Binni gives families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need. You’ll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancers, while improving their quality of life.
Every day 47 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That’s one Aussie every 31 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.
