I've been growing my hair out for 5 years, and now I realise that someone probably needs it more than I do... so I'm cutting and donating my hair to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition, such as Alopecia areata or cancer.
Children's self esteem can drop significantly during their school years, especially if they are suffering from a condition that causes them to lose their hair - having a wig to make them feel special and comfortable around their peers is just a small way of changing their lives and improving their confidence.
Wigs cost families up to $6,000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth. By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need. Thank you for helping kids in need.
