I donated my daughter's hair. It was also her first time cutting it. I never received a certificate. That says it all. I will never donate again to them.

I donated my hair about a year ago - the stylist cut my hair, but I completed the donation form and mailed the hair & form myself, so I know the information was complete & correct. A few weeks later, I got a thank-you postcard.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I had really long hair and wanted to change the style. I decided it would be nice if it could go to a good cause instead of ending up in a trash can.

I have donated four times. People do need to know that Locks of Love does NOT make wigs. Locks of Love makes prosthetic hair pieces, which are different from wigs. I am tired of people knocking the charity because they know that Locks of Love doesn't make that many wigs.

THE POINT OF DONATING IS NOT TO BE RECOGNIZED, BUT TO ANONYMOUSLY DONATE.
IF YOU ARE DONATING FOR THE RECOGNITION, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO DO IT.
YOU SHOULD BE DOING THIS OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF YOUR HEART FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN NEED, FOR THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL WIGS OUT OF OUR DONATED HAIR USUALLY FOR VICTIMS OF CANCER.
I HAVE DONATED TIME AND TIME AGAIN AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO UNTIL MY HAIR IS 100% GRAY.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I HAVE DONATED MY OWN HAIR NUMEROUS TIMES IN HOPES THAT IT IS USED TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL WIGS FOR VICTIMS OF CANCER WHO CAN FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES WHILE IN RECOVERY.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

MAKE MORE PEOPLE AWARE OF THIS PROGRAM AND MORE SALONS WILLING TO TAKE DONATIONS!!
