emma's greatest shave.

Last weekend our great friend Emma whipped out her "I'm AMAZING" pants and did something I only wish I was brave enough to do. She took part in the World's Greatest Shave to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. And raise money she did!!  Over $3000 if you were wondering!! GO EMMA!

Unlike my confussion with the term International Women's Day, the World's Greatest Shave is actually an Australian event run here each year. Every March thousands of people shave, colour and wax their hair to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation, making this one of Australia's largest fundraising events.

And as her loyal and supportive friends, we were there to buy her plenty of alcohol and take lots of incriminating photos. Cause that is what good friends do when you shave your head :)

The very first cut.  I think at this point she blurted out something along the lines of, "What am I doing?!?!" with a few explicit words scattered in there as well.

About half way through she decided a few more drinks were necessary. I can't blame her!
