The White Curl
The White Curl is a Michael Sheen fandom project that fundraises for Michael’s chosen charities and causes. It’s named after his wavy forelock of white hair, and was set up by two fans as a way to spread kindness, share fan art and fundraise at the same time.
So far they have raised over £64,000 for organisations such as Welsh homelessness charity Llamau, Thrive Women’s Aid, Voices From Care Cymru, hospital charity CW+, The Homeless World Cup Foundation and Adferiad Recovery.
The project has more than 50 contributing artists (including Michael himself!), with items featuring their artwork – which have included pins, notebooks, postcards, magnets, t-shirts and more – available to order in exchange for a donation to one of the named charities.
As the project continues, the campaigns have evolved to create innovative and fun new ways to raise money for Michael’s charities.
