I have continued to be impressed with the positive impact that BGDL has had on the alopecia community. Especially in the last several years with their new makeup line. Helping women with alopecia to feel beautiful and pretty with products customized just to their needs has really furthered the organization's cause. I've been lucky enough to continue my involvement volunteering at various events and the experience has been very rewarding.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is a one-of-a-kind organization that meets the needs of specific population - women with alopecia areata - whose needs would otherwise go unanswered. The organization is dynamic, current, and very personalized to allow for every woman coping with the challenges of alopecia areata to find something relevant and helpful for their own personal situation and needs.
Bald Girls Do Lunch gave me the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical strength to face society as a Bald Person. Bald Girls Do Lunch changes people's paradigm on beauty to the point where they are no longer ashamed to walk in society as a Bald Person or one who has Made the Choice to Wear Wigs not has to do so. I have witnessed women both young and elderly attend a Bald Girls Do Lunch luncheon sit down embarrassed and ashamed come alive by the end of the meal. Then, to meet them over time at other affairs proud and strutting their Baldness or latest wigs and sharing tips to the newest attendees. Bald Girls Do Lunch is shining the light on Alopecia and taking the shame out of being a bald female. At one time men were ashamed of being bald - Now it's Our Time to rid females of shame - Thank you Bald Girls Do Lunch! leben2005
The power of this program is in community and fellowship, or rather, sisterhood. Women diagnosed with alopecia areata report that the experience of getting together with other women like them is deeply meaningful--life- and identity-affirming.
Very refreshing to just be able to sit & visit with people that are going thru the same thing you are or have been going thru. Very down to earth & informative. So happy I am a member of this great group! Thank you Thea.
Amazing support and empowerment for women living with medical hairloss particularly alopecia. In a society which continually defines beauty through media, Bald Girls makes a profound and essential statement about true beauty and self-worth. Given a comfortable venue, women come togther find support, understanding and connection.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is a great resource for women with alopecia. The Children's Alopecia Project is proud to partner with them as they help to restore self-esteem in women living with hair loss.
