One of the charities these days with the most “buzz” (no pun intended, at least not one which I’ll admit) is Locks of Love.
This is a non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged children under 18 who suffer from hair loss, for example from the auto-immune disorder alopecia (which has no known cause or cure) or from chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
Many people donate their hair to Locks of Love. The organization will accept hair cut to a minimum of 10 inches. This hair is used to make hairpieces for children.
For those of us with shorter hair, Locks of Love accepts donations. These funds are used to defray the costs of making the hairpieces and distributing them to children who need them.
Another way to support the organization is by purchasing this cute little bear, a portion of which will go to support Locks of Love.
