Help!

I donít normally do this sort of thing, but I need to dig myself out of a hole so here goes!

A couple of years ago my teenage daughter Flo was complaining about her hair and I jokingly suggested she get a sensible hair cut like me, a simple number 2 clipper cut.

To say she was unimpressed would be an understatement which was a good thing because I have been banned from any involvement in my childrenís hair since I gave my son a crew cut aged 18 months. He and I were happy with it but other interested parties were seriously displeased.

Anyway Flo has recently decided that it would be a good idea to shave her head after all, and apparently itís my fault so Iím in trouble again.

Sheís doing it to raise money for Medecins san Frontieres, which is a fantastic cause so maybe it will turn out OK. If you would like to chip in a few quid to help make it all worthwhile it would be very much appreciated!

Although I think it is a great gesture all round i also think its a little unbalanced. There are many supporters on here that support other well deserving life saving charities e.g. RNLI on an annual basis.
Good luck to your daughter.

Help!

With just a week to go until the grand shearing I thought Iíd indulge in giving this unashamedly unbalanced thread a quick bump.

If anyone would like to drop a few quid for an excellent cause and get a freebie RIBnet Supporter upgrade as a little bonus thereís still time.

Thanks

Help!

So the deed has been done. Flo has raised over £600 which is more than she ever imagined, and it looks like Iím off the hook. Thanks to everyone who chipped in.

As a final note, the hair went to a good cause too! The Little Princess Trust is a charity that makes real hair wigs for children affected by hair loss.
