Flowers, Candy or Hair?
As Valentine's Day approaches you might be wondering what gift from the heart to your loved ones will make the greatest impact. For those of you who really want to make a difference you can donate your hair. Locks of Love is a favorite charitable organization because it puts donated hair to wonderful use. There are children suffering from life-threatening and terminal diseases who will benefit from this most meaningful gift. The children are under the age of 18 and have suffered hair loss because of disease or from ongoing medical treatments.
Donated hair must be 10 inches or longer and should not have been bleached. There are participating salons that will cut your hair specifically for LOL. For some of the younger career women you can refresh your life and your look with a more updated, mature, sophisticated style. You'll contribute immeasurably to the happiness of a sick child by giving their self esteem a big boost. They are being taken care of physically but a hairpiece can give them an emotional shot of optimism and hope. Go to their website for complete information: www.locksoflove.org
