LONDON | Seeds of Peace UK Steering Committee member Sohko Fujimoto is raising money by chopping her hair off.
For those of you who know her, she’s had this long hair for a really long time. But when a large earthquake devastated part of her home country in March this year, she was spurred into action on the realisation that actually, there are many people around the world who undergo similar moments of devastation every single day.
All proceeds will go to Seeds of Peace to fund programmes that help youth in the Middle East and South Asia shape a more peaceful future. The hair will be donated to Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for kids with cancer and other hair-loss conditions like alopecia. And how short, you ask? Oh, it’ll be short, alright! There will be pictures and hopefully a video, too!
