You Can Donate Your Ponytail too!

Those of you who have known me a while know that every few years when my hair is unbearably long, I donate it to Locks of Love that creates real life hair wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer! I went in and donated yesterday and, as always, it felt great!
While I was there I learnt about a new hair donation program called Pantene Beautiful Lengths that donates real-hair wigs to woman fighting cancer to help them regain a sense of normalcy in their life.
Both charities are wonderful causes. If you are thinking of donating just keep in mind that Locks of Love has a 10" minimum and Pantene Beautiful Lengths accepts donations starting at 8 inches. 2 inches may not seem like much but when you are talking about how short your hair will end up, it makes a big difference.

Just thought I'd share and maybe try to inspire and remind you of the little ways we can offer a BIG help to others!!
here is my "after" shot..............

That is a really awesome act of kindness you did. I have always want to donate my hair but I can seem to let it grow. I am going to work on it though. Maybe my new years resolution! You are inspiring!
