pay it forward – hair to help pack

help us blitz our target for hair to help packs!



not only can you buy a Hair to Help pack for yourself or as a gift for someone you care about, but now you can PAY IT FORWARD too! For each purchase of our $50 PAY IT FORWARD option not only will you enable five pencil cases or care packs to go to some special kids who could use them, but we will also gift another deserving child a Hair to Help pack! Your kindness will help six Australian kids.

through The Pencil Case Project we are aiming to provide 1000 hand-sewn pencil cases filled with new schools supplies to Australian children in foster care, shelters, seeking asylum, in hospitals and facing other challenges.

our hair to help project mystery boxes contain a selection of 10 hair accessories (a mix of scrunchies, hair ties and bows) all handmade by our volunteers in Australia. The boxes have been put together by our m.a.d. kid ambassadors Maddy, 12, and her sister Teegs, 10, who themselves have made 1000 hair accessories for this project. Fabrics for this project include off-cuts from designer prints, scraps from Australian handmade businesses and a selection of new and rescued pieces.

this really is a gift that keeps on giving.

*safety warning* Children must be under adult supervision at all times while wearing any hair accessory due to small parts which could be a choking hazard. Ensure children do not put hair accessories in their mouths. Remove hair accessories when children are sleeping.

please note – this is NOT a tax-deductible donation. the purchase of any pay it forward pack will enable us to gift packs to people in need and you will not receive a physical product.
