Hair, or The Lack Thereof

I may have just cut all my hair off. . .but it was for a good cause! I'm donating it to Locks of Love again.

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.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.*

I know you'll have days when you'll miss your hair, but you look great (!) and it's for a really great cause, too. My oldest did the Pantene "Beautiful Lengths" program last summer; she's working on her next donation now!
