Cut Long Hair for a Cause

Share

When you get your hair cut at your hairdresser's, where do you wonder where all those fallen tresses end up? Many are going to the head of a child in need

When you get your hair cut at your hairdresser's, where do you wonder where all those fallen tresses end up? Many are going to the head of a child in need. Locks of Love, a charitable organization based in Florida, makes wigs and hair pieces for needy children who have lost their hair to such things as chemotherapy, alopecia, or severe burns. The wigs are free or low priced-human hair wigs are otherwise very expensive, and often the families of these children have already spent thousands on medical care. Hair must be clean, relatively long, and tied properly, although it can be any age or colour. So if you're planning on lopping your mop, check out Locks of Love website (locksoflove.org), or call 1-888-896-1588 for more details and shipping instructions. Wigs for Kids (wigsforkids.org) another non profit group that makes custom hair pieces for children have chapters and affiliate salons throughout North America.
