“My friend shaved off all her gorgeous blonde hair in support of one of the teachers at our school whose 3 year old son and 2 year old daughter both have cancer. She is beautiful inside & out. (Photo)
“In case anyone was wondering, yes, she donated it to Locks of Love.”

WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 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.
Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
How Can YOU Help?
Another Reddit comment, from whence this post originated (We found it worthy and inspiring to share up this mindful action)
I let my hair grow to shoulder length in college (I am a man) so that I could donate to locks of love. First year I tried it was long enough so I did it. Second year it was half an inch too short, but the organization said that they could take it and use it to clean up oil spills. I figured “A big oil spill isn’t likely to happen any time soon” so I waited till it was long enough to donate to locks of love again.
Two weeks later, deepwater horizon.
