Just for fun!! Has anyone, women or men, ever donated long hair to a charitable organization, such as Locks of Love?

Many people have very long hair which they may decide at some point in time to cut off to a more reasonable length. This can be for many reasons, it becomes too much work to take care of, they want a change after a long time, OR they grow out their hair to donate to a charity. There are several places which take this long hair and make wigs for people that may have lost theirs due to illness, or other medical reasons. Have you ever donated your long hair to one of these types of charities? :-)

NOT true, at all! Do some "research" before making such statements. [Locks of Love is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that provides custom-made hair prosthetics to disadvantaged children up to the age of 21 who have suffered hair loss as a result of medical conditions, such as alopecia, burn trauma, and cancer treatment.[3] They are provided to t...

My son in law's nephew lost his Dad at age 9 to cancer. He grew his hair then & was made fun of for looking like a girl by his classmates. And then later disillusioned to find out they charged people for the wig pieces. He said he will never donate to Locks of Love Again.
