Wigs 4 Kids has changed my life for better. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis and never could have overcame Hairloss with a smile on my face without the staff of W4K. I am confident in everything I do because of how beautiful the hair pieces are, and because of the support the team at Wigs 4 Kids offers. It's a personal experience and they make you feel like family.

Wigs 4 Kids has changed our lives in so many ways. My daughter, Alyssa, is 5 years old and has alopecia totalis/ universalis. It has been an emotional journey for us and a difficult path navigating through medical treatments and much more. The staff at Wigs 4 Kids are friendly, comforting, and sincere. They truly care about all of the children they encounter. Ms. Maggie holds a special place in our hearts. She listened to us and gave us hope and inspiration at a time when we needed it most. To all those who donate, I cannot express enough how blessed and thankful we are for your generosity. Please know that you are truly making a difference for so many children. Seeing my daughter light up when putting her wig on will remain one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Thank you all for your compassion and drive, and for making Alyssa smile.

easy to donate hair to, and they responded quickly with my thank you letter and t-shirt (unfortunately, the seam ripped after the first use). way to go, Wigs 4 Kids!

My daughter has donated her hair twice now to Wigs 4 Kids. At first we only were familiar with "Locks for Love," but we did some research and found this wonderful company that so generously gives wigs to those that need them with no cost involved. It was also very important and special to us that they give the hair only to people in Michigan...it helps people locally. My daughter is talking about donating again this summer. She is excited to do so. She loves knowing that her hair is helping someone else feel beautiful and normal! That is all that any of us want to feel. We hope others will feel inspired to donate as well. :-)

I donated all of my hair! I really hope it helps! I think more people should do this. It really does help and my hair will grow back! When it does, I will do it again!

My daughter chose to donate her hair last year. We researched several organizations and chose this local non-profit. We couldn't be happier. The organization provides free wigs for kids in need. And, we received the most heartfelt email as acknowledgement. We would definitely donate again!

I donated my hair to Wigs 4 Kids and through the process (pre-cut) to the end thank you letter, everyone was extremely helpful and grateful. I researched 4 different nonprofit wig making companies and decided based on their goals, and morals, that Wigs 4 Kids was the one I felt was right for my hard earned hair.

What a great team at Wigs 4 Kids! When I turned 50 and decided that my "pony tail look" had to go, I googled for a local charity that I could donate my hair to. Wigs 4 Kids popped up! Beautiful salon, heart felt customer service with amazing staff. Linda Jasina
