Spotlight on Sponsor A Child Program

Wigs for Kids spotlight image

In the fall 2011 Wigs for Kids redesigned and launched the Sponsor A Child Program. This program helps children in need of a Hair Replacement. The sponsored child will receive a Wigs for Kids Hair Replacement System designed specifically for them at no cost. A sponsorship will cover the Hair Replacement System as well as products, services and support. Through the generous compassion and monetary and hair donations this will allow a child to face the mirror — and life — head-on.

Children helped through Sponsor A Child may all be treated for different periods of time, depending on each child’s case and special needs. Thanks to people donating hair to cancer patients and children suffering from autoimmune diseases, such as Alopecia, children are treated by Wigs for Kids until they reach age 18, while other children with temporary hair loss due to chemotherapy or radiation therapy may only need treatment for a couple of years.
