I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving with friends and family; I had a wonderful day with friends, family and fall foods! We all have so much to be thankful for.
This year I donated ten inches of hair to Locks of Love. I have heard of Locks of Love many times over the years and I wanted to help, but never had hair to meet the requirements for donation… It all worked out this year!
“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.”
“Locks of Love helps children with medical hair loss achieve crucial self-esteem and confidence.”
“Locks of Love is a non-religious, non-political, not-for-profit entity.”
To aid this organization, you can send them financial contributions, or donate your hair.
If you don’t have hair to donate, here are other ways you can help.
If you know a child who could be benefitted by the work Locks of love does, you can nominate them for a hair piece here.
