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!
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...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
help so many children in pain.
