Donating to Locks of Love, It's as easy as one, two, three.

Every once in a while Mark decides to grow his hair out, but once summer comes it usually means it's about to get chopped off. This time around Mark's hair measured well over 12 inches when pulled straight. This year I suggested to Mark that he donate to Locks of Love and agreed that was a great idea. I went to the Locks of Love website and easily found the page to donate his hair and the criteria the hair needs to meet in order to be donated. The Locks of Love website has a form you can print and fill out, but just in case you do not have a printer or like us you are out of ink for your printer you can simply write the same information down on a piece of paper and stink it in with the Manila envelope you use.

From the Locks of Love website; "Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 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. 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."
