Is your hair getting out of control? Always fancied the chop but didn't have the courage? While most of us are stuck inside, why not shave off your hair and help raise some funds to support those living with HIV in Scotland?

Two hardy volunteers, Will Dalgelish and his nephew Lewis, shaved theirs off live on Facebook – Will even shaved off his eyebrows! and have so far raised over £600. Can you do better?

Tips:

  1. Create your fundraiser with us on www.hiv.scot by clicking the link above.

  1. Think about why it is you want to do the challenge, what the cause means to you, what shaving your head (or cutting your hair!) means to you, etc.

  1. Share your Fundraising Link on the Social Media sites you use like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, asking friends, family and colleagues to donate to your cause and letting them know why they should. 

  2. Suggest these people who support your fundraising that they could also take part, or raise funds in another way!

  3. Many people find it's most effective to do the shaving LIVE on the social media channel/s of their choice. This way it becomes a bit of an event - and you can encourage even more donations from your viewers. Just be sure to inform people when you will be going Live. 
  1. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media, tagging @HIVScotland and using the hashtag #BRAVETHESHAVE
