Locks of Love is another charity that is close to my heart.
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. LOL meets a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics.
You can even help if you do not have long hair to donate by visiting their site and supporting the businesses shown there.
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 they provide helps to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
If you are considering donating your hair, please see LOL’s guidelines for hair donation.
Of course, the quickest and easiest way to support any charity is through financial contribution. If you choose to contribute financially to ANY institution, I would like to encourage you to find other ways to volunteer as well.
