Popular Children Cartoon Characters Shave Their Head To Support Kids With Cancer
Garfield, Olive Oyl, Snoopy and a slew of other famous cartoon characters have shaved their heads to raise awareness of children suffering FROM cancer and help these brave kids feel better about their new appearance and condition. The solidarity project came to life with the help of Brazilian cancer charity and hospital operator GRAACC.
The campaign seeks to alter the way people perceive a child with cancer and how this everyday prejudice makes those children feel and think poorly of themselves. In this way, children who have to shave their heads due to chemotherapy will feel less ashamed or humiliated after seeing their favourite characters on TV sporting their bald heads with pride.
