Plait’s all folks, as Zac gets the chop
❝I knew straight away once I was growing it that one day I would cut it off for charity❞
ZAC Warde is the type of man who says ‘why not’ instead of ‘why’.
So when his mate challenged him to a mullet-off, a competition to see who could grow the best mullet, of course his answer was ‘why not’.
Fast forward two years and 11 months, and Zac’s mullet was flowing past his shoulders and ready to be shaved off for charity.
“My mate’s didn’t last long, I think it was gone within that year, but I kept mine going and now it has been nearly three years,” Zac said.
“I knew straight away once I was growing it that one day I would cut it off for charity.”
The charity Zac chose was fittingly the Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation, or AAAF.
Before the chop, Zac had raised just under $800 and was hoping to see that total rise.
“If I get to $1000 I was going to let them shave my head fully,” he said.
Well Zac did get his wish, in fact, he got it comfortably.
He raised just under $1300 for AAAF, achievement.
The AAAF allows Zac to donate hair towards wigs used by children suffering from Alopecia as well as the money he has raised.
Zac said he might miss his mullet, but if he does, there’s a simple solution.
“If I do (miss it), I guess I’ll just grow another one and then cut that off for a different charity,” he laughed.
Plenty of Zac’s family and friends were there in support on Sunday to watch him lose the locks in support of a worthy cause. an incredible
