It started as simply as not feeling comfortable in Oil Field,
Before last week, the last time I got my hair cut was before moving to
Somewhere along the way, I got an idea in my head.
There are 2 organizations (that I am aware of) where I could donate my hair. Locks of Love, the well-known organization that creates wigs for needy children that have suffered hair loss due to a medical condition and Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program which has partnered up with the American Cancer Society to provide wigs to women with cancer.
The big difference between the two organizations is the length requirements for donated hair. Locks of Love requires 10 inches while Pantene’s requirements are 8 inches.
I am donating my 11” ponytail to Locks of Love.
It may have started with a bit of anger and hatred towards the circumstances of my living situation, but has turned into a wonderful gift to a (presumably) cute little kid.Now if I could just get used to that stranger in the mirror.
