My story

[p]On 20th May I had my hair shaved off. This was filmed and aired on Facebook. You can still witness this experience on my FB event page. It happened on the Market Place in Abingdon-on-Thames Town Centre. Thanks so much to those who joined me, either there or via FB.[/p][p]Here is the official video about the whole experience, before till after, from Ben Cole, Film Maker: [url=http://vimeo.com/271119755]http://vimeo.com/271119755[/url][/p][p]...and here is the live recording of my hair being shaved:[/p][p][url=https://www.facebook.com/silvia.siret/videos/10156340311274650/]https://www.facebook.com/silvia.siret/videos/10156340311274650/[/url][/p][p]...and one from before, where I explain why I love ABoB:[/p][p][url=https://www.facebook.com/silvia.siret/videos/10156331255264650/]https://www.facebook.com/silvia.siret/videos/10156331255264650/[/url][/p][p]ABoB needs all our support. If they receive the funds they need to run their hugely transformative self development programmes, they will help change our society in the most amazing, beneficial way. Vulnerable young men experiencing difficulties which could lead to them to using drugs or committing crimes will receive the right support at the right time in order to make more healthy choices and understand how to deal with their emotions.[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/p4ylZ_ABUaw?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" kwframeid="3"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]“[i]Whereas numerous Government initiatives seem only to scratch the surface, abandofbrothers gets right to the heart of the underlying causes – and the results speak for themselves. Young men are NEET largely because the sparks of aspiration, motivation and creativity are not being ignited. abandofbrothers gives communities the tools to both fan those sparks and also channel the resultant flames to where its warmth is most needed.[/i]” [b]Andrew, [/b]PRU teacher, East Sussex[/p][p]More information on A Band of Brothers: http://abandofbrothers.org.uk/[/p][p]And here's a little video from their website:[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/vWdf6F3IL2w?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" kwframeid="1"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]...and another really good video about what they do:[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/249374974/" kwframeid="2"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]Please, also help me spread the word by sharing this with your social networks. [/p][p]With all my heart: THANK YOU[/p][p]Silvia Siret[/p][p]PS: My hair has been donated to The Little Princess Trust - http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/donate-hair/[/p]
