A Mother & Daughter Hair Donation Story

January 10, 2020

Audrey and Amanda Hair Donation Pictures

After reading a book of illness, friendship, and inspiration, seven-year-old Audrey was motivated to do something to help other little kids feel better. And even inspired her mother to join in.

Mother and daughter donation duo from North Carolina, Amanda and Audrey, share their story of donation to Wigs for Kids.

What motivated you to donate?

We read the book “The Lemonade Club” by Patrica Polacco about a little girl who lost her hair during cancer treatments and how her best friend and classmates found a way to make her feel special. 

Why did your daughter want to donate?

After reading the book we talked about loved ones that had that experienced the same thing, including a very dear Aunt who we lost when Audrey was young. Audrey said “I want to donate my hair so they will feel better.”

Audrey and Amanda Hair DonationHow did you hear of Wigs for Kids?

When we told our hair stylist that we were hoping to donate our hair she told us about Wigs for Kids. 

What was the donation process like?

The donation process was very easy. We told our stylist what we were wanting to do and after cutting our hair we answered a few simple questions online and then mailed it in. So easy.

Tell us a little bit about you and your daughter.

We live in North Carolina and love being outside and reading books. Audrey is seven years old and starting second grade in the fall. She loves to dance, sing, catch frogs and play softball.
