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.”
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.
