Think Long When Donating Your Hair

Jessica is a strong young lady battling Leukemia. When Wigs For Kids was contacted by Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital about making Jessica’s Christmas wish for hair, we knew we had to make this transformation a reality.

In 2018, we’re challenging you to think long when you’re donating your hair. As Jeffrey explained to Jessica in this video, it takes several longer ponytails to make a long wig such as this one. When our amazing donors give ponytails longer than 12 inches, we can make the beautiful long hairpieces that will help children to look and feel themselves.

Today we wanted to share an amazing transformation that happened last week thanks to your generosity. Bernadette, just one of our amazing Wigs for Kids donors, was able to meet Amanda, the strong young lady who received a wig because of Bernadette’s donation.

Amanda started losing her hair in preschool as a result of alopecia. Alopecia is an immune system disorder which causes the body to start attacking the hair follicles, causing baldness in people of all ages. It is most common in people younger than 20. While some children will lose clumps of hair, others will become bald because of the disorder.

Bernadette has donated her hair four times to Wigs For Kids. “This is my fourth time donating my hair,” she shared. “I really wanted to tell the story of who got my hair donation.” Bernadette travelled all the way from New Jersey to capture Amanda’s wig fitting for a story she’s writing for nj.com. Here’s a sneak peek at this amazing story:

We’re looking forward to hearing more about Bernadette and Amanda’s story when the piece is published next month!
