Back-to-School Kindle Bug Campaign

August 25 to September 30

Head down to your local Great Clips for a back-to-school haircut and help kids affected by childhood cancer! Customers who donate three dollars or more during Great Clips' Back-to-School Kindle Bug Campaign will receive a coupon for five dollars off their next haircut! The fundraising campaign takes place at Great Clips salons in southern Alberta (Calgary, Cochrane, Airdrie, Okotoks, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat) from August 25 through September 30, 2021 in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Funds raised through the Back-to-School Kindle Bug Campaign will go to Kids Cancer Care’s programs for children with cancer and their families. Now in it's fourth year, the Back-to-School Kindle Bug Campaign has raised $45,000 for Kids Cancer Care.

The Big Brave

The Big Brave, formerly known as Shave Your Lid for a Kid®, is one of Kids Cancer Care’s largest fundraising initiatives, raising more than $14 million since its inception in 1998. Our Big Brave is successful because of you. Each year, hundreds of Albertans cut, colour or shave their lids for our kids. Your brave actions show moral support for the 190 kids in Alberta who are diagnosed with cancer each year, while raising money for camp, research, tutoring and scholarship programs for young people affected by cancer.
