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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its dedication to its mission.

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

superb.

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

help so many children in pain.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

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.

I had never had any type of cancer but the thought of cancer to any individual was crazy and I thought I had to something at school we have a club called Relay for Life and we raise money for them and my hair had always been long and I really thought of cutting my hair for a long time and decided to cut 13-14 inches I my hair and it was my first time and I donated my hair to Wigs for Kids and now my hair is growing and I will donate my hair again and again.

I had been driving pass Go Green Salon for several years, and I kept thinking to myself.......I will stop in there sometime. Well one day I did, I was greeted by the sweetest woman, and quickly realized there was a great synergy there. I have volunteer a few times now and just love it! the young people that come in there to get a wig..............well they get so much more. They are received with compassion, love, kindness, understanding, laughter and joy. Some of the children have cancer and some have Alopecia, and I will say these children make the rest of us want to be brave like them. Thank you Maggie and your team for caring enough to do something about this, and to show that they are not alone, and that there are people who care, willing to come along side and help out!

I have been a volunteer with Wigs for Kids for a little over two years, and I'm amazed every time I'm involved with them, every person that comes through there doors leaves with a smile on their face, their self-esteem brighter, confidence within themselves much higher, and they all feel like they are part of a family. Wigs for Kids not only do they makes Wigs for Kids they build stronger, happier, more confident people. I am blessed to be part of such a wonderful place, Maggie and the staff are an amazing group of people that never stop giving.

WIGS4KIDS Is a Non-profit organization which in my mind supersedes many!!!! Parents have enough to worry about with costs of healthcare, medications, and other bills not paid due to leave of absences from work. I have been involved with WIGS4KIDS for ten years now and have seen the impact personally on each and every child that has walked through the doors. Maggie is kind, courteous, understanding, vibrant, educated and loving. She has the passion no other women has that I have ever met. Even during her own health battles, she put these kids first. Not only has this organization helped these children, it has also broadened my horizons, taught me valuable life lessons it has also taught me great working skills. To anyone who needs services of this kind, the support, education, and determination this organization has is by far the greatest around.

Wigs4Kids is unlike any other organization. Everything is free to the kids it helps, and it's because of donations that this is possible. Maggie works endless hours to get the message out about Wigs4Kids, and on top of that she is woking with the families to fulfill their needs and to bring a smile to their deserving child. The results of her efforts, and her staff, are unbelievable. No child is turned away. I am proud to volunteer for such a great organization, I wish I could help out even more.

... do nothing. This business model is tuned and running just fine the way it is.

W4K is a very dedicated, wonderful atmosphere to be in. Maggie and Kim have a heart of gold and work from their heart and soul. I have never felt so at peace and welcomed every time I was there to volunteer, my mother Virginia worked along side with me when she could and we always looked forward to helping them out any way we could. Maggie and Kim are very special people and the whole staff make it possible to have them be where W4K is today. What a wonderful company to help so many kids and people in need. Keep up the great job! We miss you! Casandra Dennis and Virginia DeKruif..

Wigs 4 Kids is a wonderful non-profit that not only provides wigs for children with illness resulting in hair loss but also restores their self-esteem. I have had the pleasure of volunteering for Wigs 4 Kids since it's beginning and have watched it grow from a small grassroots organization run out of an 800 square foot salon into the Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center that now provides hair prosthetics to hundreds of children a year. Maggie Varney founded the organization and her love of these kids and passion for the cause has driven her to help so many children. In addition to providing wigs, support services such as music therapy, nutrition classes and counseling for the kids and their families are available. It is important to these kids to look like their peers and with bullying being so prevalent in society making sure these kids feel good about themselves is vital. To witness the positive reaction these kids have when they receive their wigs is beyond heart-warming. Many of the families report that their children's grades, relationships and all around outlook improves after receiving their wig. Maggie and Wigs 4 Kids are truly making a difference in a lot of lives and touching a lot of hearts!

I volunteered for Wigs 4 Kids multiple times at their annual fundraiser gala. We were always welcomed and thanked many times. I loved meeting the kids that the organization helps. They were all so happy and Wigs 4 Kids really made them feel special and beautiful. I also have donated my hair to Wigs 4 Kids. I decided to drop off my hair at the Wellness Center instead of mailing it and the staff was so thankful and friendly. They took me on a tour of the center so I could see exactly where my hair would go and how they help the kids.
