Donating Hair Again

There are several organizations which take hair donations, but the one I prefer to donate to is Wigs for Kids, whose focus is children who need wigs due to cancer. Steve Jones asked for before and after pictures, so here they are. Total length was about 14 in use. I’m hoping the gray will stay back enough to get at least one more donation to Wigs for Kids. After that, I’ll have to find a ministry or non-profit that collects hair for adults. Pantene is now using synthetic hair and has discontinued its Beautiful Lengths program.

We did this at the church where I’m the youth director to remind the children and youth that anyone can find a way to help others, even by simply growing out some hair. You don’t have to have a lot of money and you don’t have to have a particular skill. If you want to help others, there are plenty of opportunities out there.

    I got here through a link from your ‘Developing Presence’ blog (that I found on SSC), but was happy to see that Wigs for Kids is a good organization. I’ll be shaving & donating my hair as part of a St. Baldricks fundraiser, AND to support a former co-workers daughter who has been shaving hers for over 3 years now… she is an inspiration. If anyone would like to donate, or you’d like an example of a young person who has earned a good amount of money for her age, simply by shaving her head, check out our shaving team. Donations encouraged!

    Hi. It’s inspiring to read about other people’s experiences donating their hair. I’ve donated mine once, and my daughter and I are letting our hair grow long enough to both donate soon. While I plan to write about our experience on my blog, I’d also like to write a post featuring the stories of others who have chosen to donate. Would you have any interest in writing a paragraph or so highlighting your story/reasons for donating? I will promote the post through all my online channels and would welcome any contributors to do the same. Thanks for your consideration.
