Locks of Love; Giving for a Beautiful Cause

Locks of Love Logo (3Kbytes)When life is good to us it's oftentimes easy to forget about those that are in need, and how much caring, a little effort, and positive energy could benefit others. We at HNN feel Locks of Love is a beautiful organization and wanted to share them with you today. If you are not already familiar with Locks of Love allow us to introduce you! And if you are familiar, you may want to consider the benefits of promoting a fund raiser in your salon or neighborhood to help the children in need.
WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE? 
 Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love meets a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses provided helps to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Mission Statement
The mission of Locks of Love is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
