To Locks of Love, that is. And although you cannot really “write off” your donation on your taxes, this was worth way more to her than any amount of money. Her hair was really long and she was looking for a change – so she had it all cut off and donated it to charity.
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 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.
Kudos to my wife for being so unselfish; I sometimes wish I could be as such! She’s a better person than I, that’s for sure.
