Donating hair to Charity

While the idea of donating your hair someone may sound a little creepy, it is for the greater cause of giving a young person their confidence back after losing their hair to the stress of cancer or alopecia. While this movement is mostly targeted at women, who often hold longer hair, both men and even children can contribute to the cause. The minimum hair donation varies, where it may be up to 10 inches or so. This hair will then be made into wigs for those less able to afford their own, and to restore confidence to those who have lost their hair. Companies such as Locks of Love and the Little Princess Trust both use the hair directly for making wigs so you know where your hair is going. You can even check out the galleries showing the girls who have received their wigs.
