My daughter's hair was so long & she wanted to cut it. I had known about Lock of Love because of a high school classmate who donated his hair. So I search online for hair donations and found Wigs4Kids. I like it because it was just for kids. I wasn't sure about which organization to donate to so since her hair is thick she said she wanted to donate half to Locks Of Love & the other to Wigs4Kids. She donated 15 inches of hair in April of 2013. Now her hair is long enough to donate again but this time all to Wigs4Kids. We recieved an email last time of a certificate thanking my daughter for her donation so hopefully by now there is a child out there smiling with my daughter's hair on their head. I am so proud of my daughter for willing to donate her hair again that this time I'm hoping my hair is long enough to donate as well.

Ways to make it better...

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

Maybe have a record of what wig has who's hair & take a picture of that child with the wig. I would LOVE to see who got my daughter's hair.

A completely dedicated company that supplies wigs and well-being for children without hair for free. All proceeds go directly to the kids. Maggie Varney, Board Members and volunteers are outstanding. I cannot give enough kudos to this wonderfully run organization. Please look at their website and donate. Sincerely,
Jeanne Ingram

I used to donate my hair to Locks of Love, however, I had moved back to Michigan in 2006, I read an article in the NY Times about Wigs4Kids, and was happy to know that this organization gives much more than just wigs to children with hair loss; they uplift these kids morale, and allow them to become part of their family. They provide assistance with grooming and feeling good about themselves, especially in their time of despair. Best of all, Wigs4Kids is located right in my neighborhood of St. Clair Shores, Michigan. I walked in to a warm welcome from Maggie Varney and her staff and had my long hair cut for the last time. (Before I started dyeing it). Whenever I donate to charity, I make sure that the moneys will be well spent and not wasted. This is obvious in the spirit and the growth of Wigs4Kids, especially these last few years. Once a year Wigs4Kids throws a wonderful fundraising dinner with lovely donated prizes and inspirational messages from the wig recipients and the founder, Maggie Varney. Everyone who attends finds the evening a great experience, one we talk about all year long! We always look so forward to the next one!

The Great!

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

watching them grow from a very small space to a complete wellness center, just opened this month.

its dedication to its mission.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help so many children in pain.

I know wigs for kids is the most personable and caring place. They think of the kids 100 percent. They have helped my daughter tremendously. There is no other organization that cares that much about the kids and their well being.

My son had beautiful curly hair. I wanted to make his first hair cut a special experience. So a co worker referred me to W4kids, her daughter had recently donated there. Once we arrived we were greeted right away and everyone was so warm and friendly. My son is six yrs. old, he was three at the time and still remembers doing such a wonderful thing for other kids. Maggie and her staff are great!

As the former Mayor of St. Clair Shores, I have personally seen Maggie Varney build Wigs 4 Kids from the ground up. My wife, Nancy and I are very proud to be a part of this wonderful organization. The smiles on the faces of the kids and their parents is heartwarming for all to see. We are most proud that she has chosen to showcase the wellness center in St. Clair Shores. I really think they deserve 10 stars!

Wigs4Kids is all about the kids. It's a positive force in kids' lives who are fighting against negatives. It gives Kids who've lost their hair to cancer or other reasons the chance to again be just like all the other kids. Kids can be so cruel to anyone who is less than perfect. If you're struggling with cancer, why should you have to struggle with that too?!? Adults can go anywhere for a wig but Kid's wigs have to be made for them. And once you're one of Maggie's Kids, you're always be taken care of by W4K. There are so many ways to help. Grow your hair and donate! Participate in the W4K events and volunteer your time and if you donate money, know that all $ go to the Kids. Everyone is a volunteer.

win the lottery and set up a foundation to keep it going forever.

Maggie and her staff at Wigs 4 Kids are so committed to their cause. We have been going there for three years now. Not only is my oldest daughter Madison a client but we've been so impressed with their organization that we've also donated. THey've got a great thing going there and they put a lot of smiles on the faces of children and that's what it's all about.
