In honor of the Vancouver premiere of the new Disney On Ice show featuring Disney’s newest princess, the long golden-haired Rapunzel (from “Tangled”), Disney On Ice is sponsoring a heartwarming hair donation campaign partnering with Hype Hair Studio and Balding for Dollars to benefit underserved children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Disney On Ice and Hype Hair Studio are inviting the community to cut and donate their hair from November 5th – November 9th.
In appreciation of their kind-hearted gesture, each person donating their hair to charity will receive a free family pack of four tickets valued at $96 (available for the first 50 donations) to a Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream show. Featuring the debut of Rapunzel and other classic Disney princesses Tiana and Cinderella, Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream will be playing at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, November 21-November 25.
Please follow these hair donation guidelines:
– Hair must be clean and dry prior to cutting
– The minimum length for hair donations is 8 inches.
– Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 8 inches.
– Hair that has been chemically processed cannot be accepted.
– Grey hair is acceptable.
– Donations must be tightly bound in a ponytail or secured with rubber bands one at each end of the ponytail and in the middle; and placed in a sealed plastic bag.
The fitted hairpieces require 20 ponytails and are handmade in 40-60 hours. It is estimated that children make up over 80 percent of the donors, making this a charity where children have an opportunity to help children.
