I've done it before and it gave me an immense feeling of satisfaction. Now, as a cancer survivor myself...radiation CURED my cancer...I'm about to lop off another foot or so to donate it. My wife takes pains to note that the contribution comes from a guy. Just kinda directs a measure of irony towards those who who regard us as 'hippy scum'.
Maybe you missed the alternative suggestion(s) I posted, in your rush to discredit the post?
But I made absolutely sure that my hair was ok for donation - not bleached, 10+ inches, packaged correctly, not wet or moldy or gray (yet).
I know you have a kind and loving heart - don't let the bashers discourage you in any way!
Thank you for your e-mail and your support for Locks of Love. I appreciate you taking the time to request more information about Locks of Love. I can assure you that Locks of Love is not a scam; we are a non-profit organization that helps financially disadvantaged children suffering hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love is very much a volunteer-based, word of mouth organization. We have only one office located in West Palm Beach , FL and are only a full-time staff of six people. Because of this, we rely heavily on our volunteers! Volunteers come into our office every day and help open and sort the hair donations, and send thank you cards to our donors, and they help throughout the country whether it be a supporter holding an event, a hair stylist donating their services, or just someone like your self helping to spread awareness. Unfortunately, overtime, some misinformation has been spread. Locks of Love does its best to maintain a thorough and accurate website to help answer any questions or clear up any misconceptions. We agree that donors should do their research when supporting a charity, and if there are any specific questions I can help with, please let me know. Any interested donor or supporter may also call our office for information they cannot find on our website.
Thank you again for your support!
