TESTING THE THRESHOLD: Radiant Makeup & Beauty owner Emily Birdsey will give her husband James a full-body wax on June 24 to raise money for Make-A-Wish Australia.

James Birdsey isn’t looking forward to his full body wax this Saturday, but he says it will be worth the pain to raise a bit of money for sick kids.

James’s wife Emily owns Radiant Makeup & Beauty in Cessnock, and “volunteered” her husband to take part in the Wax For A Wish campaign, supporting Make-A-Wish Australia.

The organisation grants wishes for children aged three to 18 who are battling life-threatening illnesses.

Six Australian families are told every day that their child has a life-threatening medical condition.

James and Emily – who live at Ellalong – have a three-year-old daughter, Luna, and say they couldn’t imagine what they would do if they were in the same situation.

When Emily came across Wax For A Wish on Facebook, she thought it was the perfect event to support.

She will wax James’s chest, legs and back for the cause. They are aiming to raise $1000.

James said he wasn’t worried at first, but now some people have told him how much it hurts he’s “a bit scared”.

The wax will be livestreamed on Radiant Makeup & Beauty’s Facebook page from 2pm Saturday.

Donations can be made at the salon in Cooper Street, Cessnock or online at waxforawish2017.everydayhero.com/au/wax-on-wax-off
