Disney on Ice supports local charity
I was ecstatic to learn Disney On Ice Dare to Dream show is in Vancouver this Fall. I love everything Disney and so do my girls, and I’ve always wanted to see a Disney On Ice performance. I showed them the highlights video (below) of the show and told them we’d be attending, on the night of my eldest’s 9th Birthday even! They all have differing opinions (Ivy is completely enamoured, Berlin loves performance value, and Nya is just happy to be doing something so cool on her Birthday as a family), but they all still love the Disney Princesses and we’re all equally excited for the show.
I also love the fact that Disney on Ice is doing something pretty great for local families by sponsoring Balding for Dollars together with Hype Hair Studio to benefit underserved children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Disney On Ice and Hype Hair Studio are inviting the community to cut and donate their hair from November 5th – November 9th.
In appreciation of their kind-hearted gesture, each person donating their hair to charity will receive a free family pack of four tickets valued at $96 (available for the first 50 donations) to a Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream show. Featuring the debut of Rapunzel and other classic Disney princesses Tiana and Cinderella, Disney On Ice presents Dare to Dream will be playing at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, November 21-November 25.
*Please follow these hair donation guidelines:
- Hair must be clean and dry prior to cutting
- The minimum length for hair donations is 8 inches.
- Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 8 inches.
- Hair that has been chemically processed cannot be accepted.
- Grey hair is acceptable.
- Donations must be tightly bound in a ponytail or secured with rubber bands one at each end of the ponytail and in the middle; and placed in a sealed plastic bag.
The fitted hairpieces require 20 ponytails and are handmade in 40-60 hours. It is estimated that children make up over 80 percent of the donors, making this a charity where children have an opportunity to help children.
