The price of hair.

By Julia.

Most people have hair, I have brown hair, my best friend (one of many yet so few), as seen in the picture, has blond hair.

Each year around 13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US 35,000 children are currently in treatment for cancer. Some 25% of all kids who are diagnosed with cancer die.

So what’s the cost,
of hair that is?

I have hair, I bet you have hair too. So why do we cut our hair, without thought?
Why do we let it fall to the floor, without thinking?
Why don’t we do something magical?!

Let’s start a revolution, lets…
give hair to the little girls and boys who really need it most. A child’s path to survival is brutal, they lose their hair, their eyebrows, their eyelashes. So why not give to them what they might never get back, or might never have the chance to get back?

There is a magical organization that with your help, helps young children with medical hair loss, cancer included. The organization is called “Locks of Love”.

Two precious girls who have just given.

Now, you see that picture above? That is one of my best friends, and I after two years of careful care, we had just donated our hair to Locks of Love. She gave 10” I gave 12”.
I have donated my hair 3 times. My goal is 10 times, I encouraged my friend to donate for her first time, and I’m glad I shared that experience with her!

So grab a best friend, and donate something that’s price is a little unfair…

{PS. I first posted about this when Julia and her friend made this donation. My take on Julia’s story appears here.}
