Whether shaving your head or donating your hair (10 inches min.) to make wigs for children, participating in Klip It For Kidz is simple. Download a pledge form at www.nvccf.org or Facebook (search: Klip It For Kidz) and collect pledges from family, friends, co-workers, etc. through April 2. On event day, bring pledges along with a full head of hair to the southwest parking lot of Town Square Las Vegas, near Rave Motion Pictures. After checking in and registering your pledges, step up to the “Klip It For Kidz Salon” to get a new summer hairdo.

Raising money then shaving or cutting your hair is not the only way to get involved. Teams of co-workers, family members, classmates and social groups can band together to get pledges in honor of their company, family or loved ones, school or organization. Individuals can set their own fund raising goals and simply come to enjoy the event—all while keeping their hair intact.

New this year: text the word KLIP to 52000 from a mobile phone to donate $10 automatically. $10 will be added to phone bill. Standard messaging and data rates apply.

NCCF works side by side with the medical community to provide social, emotional, educational, financial and psychological support services and programs to families of all children diagnosed with a life threatening or critical illness such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, hemophilia, renal disorders and other immunologic diseases.

Assistance is provided by supplying required medication, providing transportation for doctor appointments, providing food and clothes to struggling families, offering free psychological counseling to those without insurance, and providing the opportunity for children to continue their education while they battle disease.

Further information about Klip It For Kidz is available and pledge forms can be downloaded at www.nvccf.org. Stay up-to-date and follow the event on Facebook (search: Klip It For Kids). Information by phone is available by calling 702.735.8434.
