Making the Kindest Cut of All…

by

Saturday is a monumental day.

I’m cutting off my hair.

“Eh, what’s the big deal?” you may ask. I’m not just cutting my hair. I’m cutting a LOT of it off.

Why? To give away to charity. My sister, my husband’s little sister, and I are chopping our hair off to give to two different places. My older sister and I are donating our hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign which makes wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer, and hubby’s 7-year-old sister will donate hers to the Locks Of Love campaign, which uses the donated hair to make wigs for disadvantaged children who’ve lost their hair from cancer and who can’t afford the high price of a wig. (See links to webpages for a much more elegant description of the good these groups do.)

I always have long hair, so this is a bit traumatic for me, lol. I’ll post some before and after pics from the day sometime Saturday night or Sunday.

Anyone have any stories of doing this, or knowing anyone who did? Or perhaps know of a woman or child who received one of these wigs?
