I did it…finally donated my hair to Locks of Love!

I have been wanting to donate my hair for a few years now, but it seems like I always have it bleached or something that makes it so my hair is not able to be donated. Well, I have been wanting to get my hair cut for several months now. I went to the Beauty School here in Yakima. When I told them how I wanted it cut, they said I could donate my hair to Locks of Love! I said go for it! So here is my new do!

WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. 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 we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
