Next Wednesday, 3 friends and I are getting our hair cut and donating 10 inches of it to “Locks of Love”. This is the first time that I am donating to this organization and I am so excited despite many of my friends resistant to me losing my long hair.
WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
I encourage anyone who has 10-inches of hair to donate to join me. Let’s make a positive difference in someone’s life. If you have a related story to share, I’d love to hear about it.
