Shave Your Lid for a Kid
Shave Your Lid for a Kid
Shave Your Lid for a Kid is Kids Cancer Care's largest fundraising initiative, raising more than $9 million since its inception in 1998. The shave program is successful because of you. Each year, hundreds of Albertans like you shave their heads for our kids. This bold move shows moral support for the kids who lose their hair during cancer treatments, while raising money for camp, research, hospital and scholarship programs for young people affected by cancer.

Shaving your head is a great way to raise money while showing moral support for kids who lose their hair during cancer treatments. If bald isn't your style, you can always opt for a haircut or pledge someone else who is shaving. Check out the new shave video here and share it widely.
Shave Your Lid for a Kid is a grassroots initiative sponsored by Trico Homes and made possible by thousands of brave Albertans who shave their heads and raise vital funds and awareness for children with cancer.
