My daughter has decided to shave her head to fundraise for cancer and also to donate her hair to make a wig for cancer patients.
We would very much appreciate if you could help us in raising as much money as possible. Any donation, no matter how small it may seem, will be greatly appreciated. Please, note that donations will go straight to the cancer society.
Thank you for your time and your help!

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
