This year Alopecia UK turns 15! 100 people have teamed up to each raise £150 in the month of September; that equals a total of £15,000 being raised for Alopecia UK! Alopecia UK is an amazing charity and has helped so many people with Alopecia feel like they are understood, as Alopecia is still a condition that the mass is highly ignorant about.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with women being bald, and I hope that the stigma can be released one day around that as it is not a laughing matter. I am ashamed at myself that for so long; I made up so many excuses as to why I couldn’t be authentic about my appearance.

I am going to fundraise by posting 15 bald photos, along with lengthy captions, onto my Instagram (@imogenjade_) to raise awareness about Alopecia and to share my own Alopecia story. Most important, I am planning to go out bald during the middle of the month for the first time ever, and documenting this experience across my social media platforms.
