Giving Idea: Locks of Love

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

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.

Another way to help is to hold your own Locks of Love event. There are also several other ways to show your support.

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.

  1. Beth Brickl says

    I am reading “great expectations” I am especially loving it because the book belonged to my great Aunt.

  2. Lindsay says

    I haven’t read the book, but I followed your link and found this description: “He challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated a God-centered gospel to fit our human-centered preferences” This sounds like something I’d be very interested in reading more about!

  3. Amy says

    I’ve not read “Radical” by D. Platt, but what sounds interesting to me is his encouragement to step out of the “comfort zone” to be a real Christian.

  4. says

    no I have not read it but it sounds really good
    “Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for?”
    my answer is yes and that in itself makes the book look like I would really enjoy reading it

  5. Hilda T says

    I haven’t read the book yet.
    I want to know more ” The Radical Experiment –a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring”

  6. marina says

    I think this will be an awesome book to challenge anyone in their faith to just come out of that comfort zone

  7. bethanyb says

    i haven’t read it, but i read the snippet about it…
    i do believe that a lot of people twist what the bible says to make it convenient for them. it would be interesting to read what he has to say about being a disciple.

  8. Jennifer says

    I have not read the book. I am intrigued to read about how to put the ideas into action in your every day life.

  9. says

    Wow. I went to the “Radical” site, downloaded the first chapter and read it…and I am blown away! I have felt the same as Mr. Platt for years, and it is nice to know I’m not alone. I thought something was wrong with me!

    Bar none, the most “spiritual” experience I’ve had recently was at a funeral of a friend of mine in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. There were two men and two women sitting up front that would every once in a while, sometimes seemingly without a spot in the program, into the most haunting 4 part harmony of old hyms. I get chills even now thinking about it.

    I am eager to follow Mr. Platt’s journey and to pass this knowledge along to my children and family.

    I think my first comment got lost. I went to the “Radical” site and downloaded the first chapter of the book. Wow…I have felt like that for some time…that the power of the Church is not in the size of the building, but in the hearts of the people.

  11. Chris says

    I have read Radical and it inspired me to live more “radically” for Jesus Christ. Loved it!!!

  12. Ruth Ann says

    I’ve heard others mention Radical and thought to myself that reading the book would probably “shake up” my life. I think it would make me dig deep into what I’m really doing for the Lord versus what it appears that I’m doing.

  13. jerikay says

    i haven’t read Radical yet but it sounds like a great read. thanks sp much for introducing it through this giveaway!

  14. Melissa P. @Mel4Him says

    I have not read the book Radical but I will have to check it out. Two books that intrigue me are Eternal Security and The Mind of Christ


  15. Melissa P. @Mel4Him says

    I “LIKE” Inspire4Less on Facebook (Melissa P./Mel4Him)

  16. says

    I’ve not read “Radical” but would like to. Sounds like what we’re learning at church on our Wednesday night group. We’re called “World Changers” and my pastor says all the time, “How can you change the world if you’re always agreeing with it?”

  17. mrs b says

    What intrigues me the most is “He challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated a God-centered gospel to fit our human-centered preferences. “
