Even though my magazine didn’t come today, I did get some great news in the mail!
Most of you don’t know, but I used to have ridiculously long hair. I loved having it but it was hot and difficult to take care of. I have never dyed my hair or anything. When I broke up with my ex boyfriend in March, I thought it would be a good time for change, so I cut all of my hair off. I love having short hair. But yeah, instead of letting all of that healthy hair go to waste, I donated it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, an organization that makes real hair wigs for women fighting cancer. They only accept pure hair that has been put in a ponytail, so nothing that has been dyed or chemically altered, and no loose hair. I have been waiting to hear back from them about my hair donation, and I got my letter today! It says:
On behalf of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths, with heartfelt appreciation, we thank you for giving so selflessly of yourself to women who are faced with hair loss from cancer treatment. Your healthy ponytail will help give self confidence back to a special woman who is battling cancer so that she can fight the disease with a little more dignity. Your generosity is touching and we hope it will inspire many others to make the kindest cut of all. As you may already know, it takes roughly six ponytail to make one Pantene Beautiful Lengths wig. Your donation will be joined with five others and transformed into a high quality, real-hair wig by HairUWear, our campaign partner and the leading global producer of real-hair wigs and extensions. We are also honored to work closely with the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer society distributes Pantene Beautiful Lengths wigs, at no cost, to female cancer patients, through it’s extensive network of national wig banks. If you are interested in finding out more about this program and the incredible difference that it is making, please visit www.beautifullengths.com. Together, we can help bring some joy into the lives of women living with cancer.
Pantene Beautiful Lengths
This means so much to me. I have a widespread family history of cancer. My Grandma is a breast cancer survivor, and so is my mom. My older brother is a skin cancer survivor. There is a lot more than that, but you get the picture. Cancer is something that rocks people’s worlds every day. It is a vicious disease. Anything I can do to help make living with cancer even just a little bit easier is well worth it. If you are interested, please view the link above. Thank you!
