August Challenge: Donate III

Hello everyone and happy Monday to you! So last week was a bit crazy, hence the lack of posts.  My sister-in-law got married on Friday (it was soooo beautiful!!) so there was the rehearsal dinner on Thursday and my other sister-in-law flew in with her husband on Wednesday so we showed them a few of our favorite spots downtown and had a great time!
Anyways, this week's challenge is actually something I did last week (Friday morning) which is the donation of hair.  I have had long hair for the last 7 years and I decided it was time for a change.  I donated almost 14 inches!!!!  I was so excited yet nervous, but I am so happy I did as it is something I have always wanted to do.  My hair has been colored before and Locks of Love has a bit of a bad rep due to selling off hair and charging families for wigs, so I researched many different companies that would allow for hair that has been colored and places that give away the wigs for free to children that have had hair loss for any reason (cancer, alopecia, burn victims, ect).  I decided to donate my mane to Children With Hair Loss which was started in 2000 due to the fact that most organizations charge families for wigs and they do not.  (sidenote: Wigs for Kids is another great organization, but because my hair has been colored, they can't accept it).  If you either cannot or do not want to donate hair but you want to help out by donating either money or your time, click on their name above and check out their website (to be honest, most places do prefer money donations over hair, but I had hair to give and money is SUPER tight right now).  I am really happy with my decision, I love my new do and I'm glad to possibly be helping a child feel beautiful again.
