Phost [Apr. 27th, 2009|01:23 pm]
Lanette
Because long time no phost! Check out how long my hair is getting. I'm gonna let it grow enough that I can donate it to locks of love again before I chop it short.

Just FYI: You might want to do a little research on locks of love before you decide if they're the charity you want to donate to. There's some controversy about the org, because they claim they receive much more hair than they could ever use, and so they sell the excess overseas. There's also the common misconception they give hair to kids with cancer and chemo related baldness, which they don't, as this is considered a *temporary* balding condition. The hair used for charitable purposes actually goes to kids with alopecia in most cases. They also generally don't give the hair away, but sell it on a sliding scale depending on family's income.

My problem with the org is this - if they get more hair than needed for kids with alopecia, why don't they also give to kids with cancer as well, rather than selling the excess?

I've seen a lot of people recommend giving to Wigs for kids instead, as they seem to have less controversial policies. www.wigsforkids.org

This is true! If I had it to do over again, I'd do the Wigs for Kids.

Good for you, Lanette for wanting to donate :-)

Also, mad cute skirt and the top is the perfect color for you!

Thanks! I'll check into wigs for kids. I do like to donate when I can. I figure, if I can grow it out for another few months and that's the difference between being able to donate or not? Totally worth it.

I'm actually ok with them selling the hair so long as they use the money for the charity to help kids.

Bummer! They can't accept any color treated or highlighted hair. At Locks of Love they can. Guess I'm out then.

from the locks of love FAQ

Q. Does Locks of Love sell hair? Throw away hair?
A. Hair that is short, gray, or otherwise unusable will be sold to help offset manufacturing costs. Locks of Love DOES NOT throw hair away unless it is wet and moldy or not bundled in a braid or ponytail when it is received.

Q. What are some of the medical conditions of the children you help?
A. Most of our recipients suffer from alopecia areata. Others have experienced hair loss from radiation therapy and chemotherapy, severe burns or trauma, and various other genetic and dermatological conditions. View Causes of Hair Loss.

Also from the locks of love page.

"The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need."

Re: I always love your hair...

Thank you! I was cracking up with the new huge wide belt. It reminds me of the 80's. The last time I wore teal eyeliner was also the 80's. I just need legwarmers and I'm all set.
