Jessie J is planning to shave her head next year for the live shows of Children in Need. The live show that airs yearly helps raise money for children in poverty – usually raising up to $50 million in just one week (as donations are opened much earlier before the show starts). Now, hoping that she can do her bit to raise more money than last year’s sum, Jessie J has confirmed on Twitter that she’ll be shaving her head for charity next year, and she seems overly excited about it too.
The ‘Who You Are’ singer expressed her excitement on the social networking site where she explained that she had been thinking about what charity she had wanted to represent following the decision of cutting off her hair. She tweeted: ”A year ago I said ‘I’m gonna shave my head for charity’,” Jessie J said.
“I have spent a long time making sure that when I do shave my head I raise as much money as possible for charity.” She added: “I have been waiting for the perfect time and the right charity. But also a charity that can get my amazing fans involved too…. I am SO excited and honored to be able to finally officially announce I will be shaving my head LIVE for you ALL to watch in March 2013 for @rednoseday :D #letsraisesomemoney.”
Jessie J: “Follow @rednoseday please :) & let’s make next year’s the BEST & most memorable but most of all it is ‘All about the money’ (This time) ;)…. Be good. Do good. Feel good. Trending worldwide already!!! Yeaaah man!!!! Thank youuu!!!#JessieJheadshaveRND #JessieJdaresyouRND woooow!!”
Children in Need airs sometime March, next year – no official date has yet been given.
