It's not often that a non-profit is able to so clearly deliver on its mission. BGDL is one of the rare organizations that has a clear mission and is able to truly help. Women with alopecia finally have a place where they can get the support and information they need.
Brilliant and oh so caring! This should be the first stop always for women with alopecia areata. Bald Girls Do Lunch has just launched their newest Alopecia Care Kits . As one of the BG Passionistas, I got to help determine what should go into the kits. If I had had one when I was first diagnosed, I would have felt so connected to other women and to great resources.
I am always happy to donate to this charity because they do things that matter! I feel great when I see how far my donations go to help women with their day to day living.
BGDL is an amazing organization run by wonderful people that make a huge difference in the alopecia community. The kindness and friendship you receive from Thea is extraordinary and provides powerful support In difficult times. There is no other organization like BGDL and it deserves more stars than I can post.
By her example, Thea demonstrates to the entire alopecia community what it means to navigate the "outside world" with dignity. God bless you!!
NAAF is great and serves many useful functions. But Bald Girls is an intimate sisterhood that has helped me through some very dark days in a way that a big corporate organization never could. Thea, you are a blessing.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is my go-to alopecia resource. As a blog subscriber and follower of BGDL, I rely on this organization because they truly care about what is important to me. Thea takes the time to answer all my questions. I am so glad this organization helps me and my family.
Thea has taken her own experience and turned it into a positive program for others sharing the same issues. She goes far beyond others in this space by promoting positive solutions. Women looking for answers to the latest in alopecia areata research, how to look their best, alopecia support, shared stories and how to get involved find her Bald Girls Do Lunch the "go to" organization.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is a fabulous organization! Thea's upbeat personality makes this organization a true hit-- she has a wealth of knowledge that ranges from makeup tips to how to debut the bald look. Sign up for a lunch or attend one of her fundraising events to see what it's all about, you won't regret it!
I volunteered at the last beauty workshop event and I would definitely volunteer again! The event was very well organized and I could tell that all of the women were having such a great time.
I've never felt excluded by BGDL and in fact, what helps some of us, helps all of us. The organization is doing a wonderful job in bringing attention to women's hair loss. I've had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Thea. We support each other's efforts in raising awareness of women's hair loss and more importantly, supporting our sisters to be brave and help others understand this condition. BRAVA!! --Candace Hoffmann author "Breaking the Silence on Women's Hair Loss."
Bald Girls Do Lunch is bringing a grass roots, woman-to-woman awareness and support to the plight of women with alopecia areata. Thea Chassin is single-handedly leading the charge to bring a larger awareness to the condition and challenge the science community to seriously work on finding a cure. She is helping give women a voice and fellowship as she travels the nation with a simple idea -- hey let's do lunch. Let's talk. Bravo!
I wish you included women with other causes of hair loss, like female pattern. I felt so sad when I learned I was not welcome at these meetings. I know you stick to your mission statement, but couldn't you branch out?
Thanks for your interest in Bald Girls Do Lunch, but I can't help but notice that your disappointment is misdirected. I see that you are very disappointed because our mission helps women with an autoimmune hair loss disease and you don't have an autoimmune hair loss disease. We're very successful and highly respected, so why would you take it out on us publicly with 1 star, as if saying that we are somehow unsuccessful? We're always known to go out of our way to be helpful, so I have an idea I hope you like. Female pattern hair loss is a serious concern as it causes much distress for women world-wide. I have had the honor to get to know ( because I educate them about alopecia areata) some of the most caring and talented specialists from many professional hair replacement centers across the United States. Many of them hold meet-ups specifically for women just like you with female pattern hair loss to meet others with the same concerns. If you need help finding a hair replacement center near you, we will do what we can to help you find one.
I was referred to Bald Girls Do Lunch from a blog, as I was researching top products for creating eyebrows, as mine have basically become invisible over the years. I wanted make up products that would allow me to draw the brows on and keep them on. I ordered the brow powder, sealer and brush. Once my order was placed, I received an email asking questions about my hair coloring and skin tone, as there was a brow powder color that did not show up on the order form and may be a better match. After answering and asking a few questions it was determined that Dark Blonde would most likely be a better choice so my order color was changed. Thea, at Bald Girls Do Lunch, and I exchanged a few emails, and I felt like I had just made a new friend. She truly provided the absolute best Customer Service I have experienced probably ever in my life (and I am no spring chicken). Thea seemed to actually care about my satisfaction with the products and that I received the right products for me. I have since reordered and again, Thea, the true definition of Customer Service, sent me a personal email, thanking me for reordering from Bald Girls Do Lunch. I will continue to order, which supports medical hair loss issues. Here's to you, Thea, you are the best, Thank you again.
