Locks of Love

Locks of Love (LOL) was first started in connection with a for profit wig making company and in December 1997, the organization obtained its nonprofit status. LOL provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 18 years and younger suffering from long-term medical hair loss. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Over 2,000 hair donations are received through the mail each week. 80% of our hair donors are children. The number of hairpieces produced has increased significantly since its inception, from 21 the first year to over 1,000. LOL has recipients in all 50 states and Canada. http://www.locksoflove.org/
