Wigs 4 Kids
June 24, 2010

I had been really sick for a while, and no one knew what was wrong with me. They said it was in my head and I was faking it. I knew I wasnt though, because things happened I couldnt control, and my hair stared falling out. i started getting huge bald patches, and I didnt want to start school as the weird sick girl. we found wigs 4 kids and decided it was time to go try. I was worried they would turn me down because we didnt know what was wrong with me, but we went anyway, because I needed help and we didnt know what to do. when we met with maggie we told her what was going on, and everyone at wigs 4 kids were some of the nicest people ive met. maggie reassured me that it would be okay, and they wouldnt let me feel like i was ugly because of how i looked. i was starting school within 4 days. she got me a wig within 2, in time for school. i was able to attend the first day of school, and i didnt have to worry about anything! it made me feel beautiful again, and more importantly, like myself again. the doctors finally diagnosed me with some rare diseases, and we dont know if i will loose my hair again, but it doesnt matter, because i know I will always have wigs 4 kids. they have helped me so much, and I only hope I can do the same for them some day. I am going to try ang grow out my hair and donate it too one day! I love you all! you are the BEST!!!!

Ways to make it better...

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

I wouldnt. They already are absolutely AMAZING!!! they have helped SO many kids in so many different ways. they let us be ourselves again, and not have to be labeled by the public as sick. we now can just fit in and be a normal kid.

More feedback

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

how much they have helped me and how kind everyone is!

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

AMAZING!

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

help so many kids feel like themselves again, and not defined by their illness, but by who they are.

Ways to make it better...

it couldnt have. it was amazing.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the economy and money issues. it costs a lot to give kids good wigs that fit, so money can be a hard challenge to overcome.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Wigs 4 Kids is one of the best organizations on earth! they help so much, and they really do care about each and every person that walks through their doors.
