Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BEDFORD, England - May 24, 2016 - Hairless Harri is the story of seven-year-old Harri who’s shunned by her new classmates because she’s bald. But Harri eventually wins all the girls and boys round with her awesome football skills and amazing hair creations – making her the coolest girl in the whole school.
Author Rebecca Dawe, who lost her hair at 16 to an aggressive form of alopecia, says: ‘I endured stares and horrible comments but at school it’s much more brutal. Children are scared of things that are different. I wanted to write a book that helped teach children to celebrate differences rather than fear them.’
Catherine Cadman, fundraising manager for CLIC Sargent, says: ‘Hairless Harri shares some very important messages and has been released at a very appropriate time ahead of Wig Wednesday, when everyone in the UK unites to show their support to children and young people with cancer. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Rebecca for donating proceeds to the charity.’
Mum-of-two Rebecca will be donating all the proceeds from her book to CLIC Sargent until the end of June, after which she will choose another charity to benefit. ‘The book is my tiny contribution to something I feel passionate about. It’s my donation to all the incredible work that charities are doing to support children and their families with hair loss.’
