Locks of Love Hair-Cut-A-Thon

Before I get into this blog, I just wanted to give you some insight on this awesome cause. So I went to the website and copied and pasted this about Locks of Love. I will continue with my explaination at the bottom.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 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. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
Mission Statement
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.

Locks of Love is a non-religious, non-political, not-for-profit entity. Further, Locks of Love does not take positions or align itself with any special interests. Any event taking place as part of a religious, political or any other special interest group does not reflect the views or opinions of Locks of Love.
It is Locks of Love’s mission to promote the well-being of children through its program of providing hairpieces. All events and fundraisers held on behalf of Locks of Love should uphold and reflect the mission and desire to help disadvantaged children.

Okay.....on with my explaination. My husband has been growing his hair for quite awhile so he could donate to this cause. He's been putting it off and putting it off....who knows why. So today at work an employee walked in with a flyer for Locks of Love. They are having a Hair-Cut-A-Thon on Monday, March 23 here in Winter Haven. It starts at 3:00 pm. I am going to get him an appointment for after 3:30 since that's what time he gets off work. And I will be there with the camera, taking lots of before and after pics and probably pics of other donating too. For those of you who live in the Winter Haven area and are interested or know someone who might be, here's the info:

When: Monday, March 23, 2009
Where: Hair Cut Naturally (Downtown Winter Haven)
Time: 3:00 pm

They will be serving refreshments, a certificate of appreciation and a gift for anyone who participates.

Contact Information:
Call Ali Lewis @ 863-412-2797 for more information and appointment.

Update......I just spoke with Ali, who is in charge of this event. She said that Hair Cut Naturally ( 3rd St. and Central Ave)will stay open as late as they need to for haircuts. They are charging $15 per cut, but that includes styling and everything. Locks of Love is in dire need of hair for these wigs.

I am looking forward to this event. I am tired of Hut's hair being longer than mine, lol. I just wish mine was long enough to donate too.
