Wigs 4 Kids
April 15, 2014

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

Wigs 4 Kids
June 27, 2010

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!
