September 7 is National Donate Your Hair Day, which is organized by Go To Beautiful Lengths, see www.GoToBeautifulLengths.com. Along with sponsors Walmart and Pantene, you can participate not only on 9/7 but throughout the month of October.
Here's how it works. Go to http://www.gotobeautifullengths.com/ and register to get a donation kit. You must have a minimum of 8 inches of hair to donate. You will receive a donation kit from Go To Beautiful Lengths explaining the program and offering not only their sincere thanks, but a $30 rebate off Pantene products from Walmart. It's a generous offer, and a wonderful program designed to benefit those who have lost their locks.
This is an explanation from their website:
Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society, the largest non-profit health organization committed to saving lives from every cancer and improving the quality of life for people facing the disease. The role of Pantene is to help women grow long, strong,* beautiful hair and provide the funds to turn this hair into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer. So far, Pantene has donated 24,000 free real-hair wigs to the American Cancer Society's wig banks, which distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country. To see if you are eligible to receive a free wig or if there are wigs available in your area, please call the American Cancer Society's Wig Bank Line at 1-877-227-1596.
If you can donate, or are in need of donation, please contact the American Cancer Society.
