I donated my daughter's hair. It was also her first time cutting it. I never received a certificate. That says it all. I will never donate again to them.
Hello, I am the Donor Manager. I sincerely apologize that you had difficulties with receiving your thank you acknowledgement; I know how much kindness, time and generosity go into making a donation. Our turn around time is typically 90 days but anytime after that we are always happy to look into why you did not receive yours or resend a certificate. Sometimes certificates can accidentally go into the junk folder or there may be an address error. We are a staff of 6 employees servicing worldwide, we really so greatly on our wonderful volunteers that generate the thank you acknowledgements. They consistently work diligently but sometimes human error can happen. I would love to send you a new thank you acknowledgement, your donation is so appreciated, we never want a donor to go without a thank you. Please, if you are able, give us a call at 561-833-7332, we will immediately take care of this for you. Christa T. Stamos
I have donated four times. People do need to know that Locks of Love does NOT make wigs. Locks of Love makes prosthetic hair pieces, which are different from wigs. I am tired of people knocking the charity because they know that Locks of Love doesn't make that many wigs.
Review from CharityNavigator
THE POINT OF DONATING IS NOT TO BE RECOGNIZED, BUT TO ANONYMOUSLY DONATE.
IF YOU ARE DONATING FOR THE RECOGNITION, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO DO IT.
YOU SHOULD BE DOING THIS OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF YOUR HEART FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN NEED, FOR THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL WIGS OUT OF OUR DONATED HAIR USUALLY FOR VICTIMS OF CANCER.
I HAVE DONATED TIME AND TIME AGAIN AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO UNTIL MY HAIR IS 100% GRAY.
