Target demographics: Women and teen girls with any type and any duration of the autoimmune skin disorder, alopecia areata. We also assist women with scarring alopecias.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Assemble information kits for public awareness and package sleep hats for our newly diagnosed. Like to surf? You can provide us a list of general practice dermatologists in your city.
Geographic areas served: Nationwide USA, Canada and global
Programs: In-person workshops, meet-ups , social and educational activities to conquer the isolation experienced by women with alopecia areata. Our global communications, superb e-newsletter and in-person events for women bring true life changes. Care packages for the newly diagnosed include our very own Sleep-hat.....both a real and a virtual hug from the women in our network to our newly diagnosed "sisters".
Our lunches and other events are fun, friendly, educational, relaxing and, most of all, totally empowering. By being with people who experience the same things you, your self-esteem improves and you gain confidence, camaraderie and a powerful sense of community.
Since 2007, we’ve brought lunches, workshops and demonstrations to 60 cities in 25 states, and are connecting more women all the time.
BGDL is the only non-profit specifically created specifically for women with alopecia areata, the autoimmune skin disease that stops the normal growth of hair on the scalp, brows, lashes and body. Alopecia can have a devastating effect on a woman’s self-image — but sitting around and wishing for a cure or treatment is NOT what we’re about!
In addition to our lunches and events, we have an active blog and newsletter, and cosmetic line called Signature Collection. You can check them out at www.baldgirlsdolunch.org.
