Hi everyone…I NEED YOUR HELP! (I am sure I will post this one or more times)
I will make this short and sweet; I am donating my hair to locks of love, and looking for other volunteers.
WHAT WE NEED: 10” (or more) of hair
WHAT IS ACCEPTED: colored, permed, and layered hair
There is a link to the LOCKS OF LOVE site, located to the right – under sites to visit!
I am not trying to guilt anyone into doing this, although I think that everyone should donate! Charli is not old enough to use this organization, however if she would relapse – she may need this service.
This organization provides wigs and hair pieces to men and women (children and adults) who have lost their hair due to the cancer treatment process.
You could give them the gift of their confidence again. We are lucky that Charli is not old enough to understand the strands of hair as they fall out – but if she were a few years older, I can’t imagine how I could dry her tears, as she can’t brush her hair.
My goal is to find 10+ volunteers to join me in donating their hair. So far I have three adults and one child that will join this ‘fight’. Amanda, my sister-in-law, told me that the average persons hair grows ½” a month. This means that in 2008 we would all have enough to donate to this cause, and have our “old” look back!!
If you are interested in doing this with us, send me a note or get in touch with me somehow. I would like to keep track of everyone, and have all of our locks sent in together.
I know that we will reach this goal, and truly change the lives of several people – and what is better than that. I feel so motivated by this; I wish my hair could grow out over night!!!
Take some time to think this over, and please consider it. It doesn’t matter how long or short your hair is now…we will wait for your locks!
