Hair Donation Ottawa 2020

Hair Donation Ottawa (HDO) is an annual fundraiser that raises funds for cutting-edge cancer research at CHEO, empowers kids with hair loss by providing them with free wigs and supports green initiatives championed by Green Circle Salons. We are excited to announce that the 10th anniversary of Hair Donation Ottawa is presented by National Bank of Canada, and will take place virtually (for the first time ever), between September 1 – 30, 2020, during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!


As life slowly begins to get back to our new normal, you can make your cut count by registering, donating your hair and making a real difference to local kids.

We’ve all witnessed what a pandemic can do… to your do! Whether you have the long locks necessary to make a wig or can donate your hair or beard trimmings, no hair goes to waste and you can make a difference in the lives of children and youth in your community.

This non-profit fundraiser was founded by a cancer survivor, Helene Hutchings, and is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in 2020. Things may be different this year, but with the help of some amazing sponsors, dedicated volunteers and enthusiastic participants, this virtual event will celebrate courage and generosity while having a lot of fun along the way.
