Locks of Love

Two months ago put my hair in a ponytail, gave Tim my Gingher's, and he looped off 36cm. We've donated it to Locks of Love because they provide hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children, suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Locks of Love uses donated hair to create high-quality hair prosthetics, to kids under the age of 21, living in the US and Canada.

I love that they help these kids. And donating my hair felt really good. If you want to help too, please click donation details, to see if your hair qualifies.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. My wife and 3 kids did the same, but they all completely shaved their heads. It was a bit of a visual adjustment, with my wife and two daughters hairless for several weeks!
