Today I have a super duper special polish to show you guys. GLAM POLISH's new LE ALOPECIA AWARENESS shade called 'BAD HAIR DAY'
This polish was specially made to help raise funds and awareness for Alopecia Areata. It was named by Natalia Voss, a 13 year old girl with Alopecia Areata. Some days it can be very hard covering up patches of missing hair or even looking at your hair in the mirror when you have Alopecia Areata so this was the perfect name for the fundraising shade.
For the month of September GLAM Polish will be raising funds and awareness for Alopecia. All funds donated will go to Alopecia Areata Association of Australia Foundation Inc. to help fund wigs for children with Alopecia and aid in educating against bullying.
$7.00 AUD from each bottle of Bad Hair Day sold will be donated to the Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation Inc.
GLAM Polish will also be accepting donations to help buy wigs for kids from their GoFundMe fundraising page, all proceeds will go to the Alopecia Areata Association of Australia. To donate please visit:
All funds donated via the Go Fund Me page go directly to the AAAF
