Last month, a beautiful-hearted community supporter raised over $6,800 for disadvantaged Kiwi kids on the promise of shaving her head.

Gita Valabl said goodbye to her lovely locks one Sunday with the family gathered. She told Variety that her family and friends were incredibly generous with their kind words and donations, and even her 97-year-old grandmother, who doesn’t like the new look and asked Gita to put her hat back on, gave her $50.
