THE STORY:

In lieu of getting presents for their 2014 birthdays Charlotte, Thomas and James are hoping to raise enough money to pay for a custom made human hair wig for a child living with hair loss. Children with Hair Loss is a charity that creates wigs for children who need them, at no cost to those children!!  It costs $1,800 to custom fit and create a wig for a child and while people often very generously donate their hair, the wigs are extremely expensive to make. http://www.childrenwithhairloss.us/nonprofit-information/

Charlotte has grown out her hair out all winter and is donating an entire 12 INCHES of hair, hopefully along with enough money to fund the making of a wig.

CWHL’s focus was on children fighting cancer, until they found out that there were a lot of other reasons why children lost hair including Alopecia, burns, Trichotillomania and other rare diseases and disorders. To this day, Children With Hair Loss has never charged a child.

With a custom fit wig a child can swim, run, play, dance and live just like every other child without feeling insecure, looked at differently or worried their wig might fall off.  It provides empowerment and confidence and a renewed sense of self-esteem.
