This year, we have some slightly more large-scale plans; ones which we hope will help build on what we've already established and also raise copious funds for Alopecia UK! Now, we're not going to let you in on all our top-secret plans (that'll spoil half the fun and the excitement when it happens), however we will let you in on one or two things happening now...
Our brand new blog...
There are plenty of people writing excellent blogs about their hair loss, their experiences and how they deal with it, but we're hoping to do it slightly differently! Rather than one individual (aka, me) telling one story, we've decided to bring together a collective group of volunteer bloggers to tell lots of stories. Lots of opinions, on lots of things (all related to hairloss or personal experience), creating a valuable library of things you can relate to! We're starting small, but in the next few days we'll introduce our very first volunteer blogger to break up the monotony of my ramblings ;-) If you like the idea and would be interested in participating, you can email us to express your interest
A new range of products...
Starting next month (hopefully), we're going to be offering a range of unique, quirky or useful products that we all either covet or need. Basically, our plan is to add the products at their Recommended Retail Price (as requested by the suppliers), but commit that all profit made will go to Alopecia UK to help fund their vital work! It's no secret, we all buy many of the same products, but we buy them from companies that profit! Now that isn't inherently a bad thing, but this way, you can still buy what you need through Pretty Bald, but in doing so, also donate money! Now we can't get everything straight away and we're being pretty picky about who we work with, but we're also interested in ideas on what you'd like us to include! Please email us your favourites, must-haves, can't live without's, really love etc. etc. and we'll do our best to include them!
Now, it might not sound like much, but we're hoping to raise at least £10,000 each year for Alopecia UK (more if we can) so they can really keep doing what they need to do!
Fingers crossed and we hope you like it!
