|ponytails for donation|
My long hair has been cut off, packaged up, and mailed off as a donation to Children With Hair Loss, a U.S. nonprofit making wigs at no-cost for children with medically-related hair loss from cancer treatment, burns, alopecia, or other conditions. I was lucky to avoid chemotherapy during breast cancer treatment last year, so this is one small way to give back and express gratitude during what continues to be a challenging transitional time.
If you or someone you know with long hair is debating a drastic haircut, consider donating that hair (which must be cut off the head from a long ponytail or braid). For most of us, hair will grow back.
