I just came across a blog entry about donating hair. The blogger posted this link:
If there is anyone out there reading this and living in Canada, perhaps the agency mentioned in the article might be of interest to you.
Here is a confession for you...!
I got my hair cut last December, about 15 inches. It is braided, in a bag, in my dresser, waiting for me to figure out what agency I should send it to. Beyond pathetic, I know.
I did some research months ago, but was not successful in finding a reputable-sounding agency.
If someone can direct me to an agency that will really use my hair to make a wig for a cancer patient, I would very much appreciate it.
I am hoping that next summer my hair will be long enough for another donation. Agencies look for at least 10 inches of hair.
If you can't donate your hair, I am sure you can do something else. Go give blood, instead, for example. Or, volunteer at a local oncology unit.
