Because for the past five or six years, I've been growing my hair for Locks of Love. This is my third donation. Locks of Love provides a free and loving way for people of all ages to make a difference! Donated hair provides human hairpieces to underpriviledged children who have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. Others have suffered burns, injuries or endured radiation that caused permanent hair loss.
It is estimated that approximately 80% of the donors are children. Children helping other children is a wonderful thing. Please read more about Locks of Love at http://www.blogger.com/www.locksoflove.org/contact.html
So folks; when I'm not writing, cooking or gardening, I'm growing my hair! Give it a try :)
