How can I help sick kids?

Donate Your Ponytail!

Locks of Love is a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to disadvantaged children who suffer long-term medical hair loss, including hair loss that results from alopecia areata and cancer treatments. The hairpieces help restore the children's self-esteem and confidence, helping them face the world and their peers.

Locks of Love accepts donations of clean, dry, natural hair that is at least 10 inches long and that is bound in a ponytail or braid. The hair you donate may be colored or permed, but Locks can unfortunately not accept hair that has been bleached or chemically damaged.
