Mishelle’s Hair Donor Story

January 25, 2017

Welcome to our Best of 2017: Wigs For Kids series! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be looking back at some of your favorite posts and sharing some of the transformations we’re watched this year!

Mishelle is just one of our many amazing donors. Like many of you, she was inspired by her cousin Melody to donate her hair to Wigs For Kids so another child could have their own amazing transformation. We don’t know what we would do without your support!

Mishelle’s Hair Donor Story

At Wigs for Kids, we receive so many special hair donations from people all over the world, many in honor of a loved one who has suffered from hair loss. This year, we received a very touching donation from Mishelle. She’s 18, just finished high school and is off to college this fall – Harvard no less! She plans to study law on her full scholarship.

In addition to her intelligence, Mishelle is also very caring. She has a little cousin named Melody who has Alopecia and has lost her hair. Melody actually has a hairpiece from Wigs for Kids. When Mishelle went to visit Melody this year, she decided it was time to cut her beautiful long hair and donate it. She wanted to show Melody the first step in creating a wig just like hers. With such a big heart, we know Mishelle will go far, and we wish her the best at college and beyond!

We couldn’t provide our custom hairpieces to children in need without the generous help of people like Mishelle – and you! Ready to become a hair donor? Learn how. Or, if you’re unable to donate your hair, consider a financial donation.
