BENEFITING: BALD GIRLS DO LUNCH INC
Fall is Alopecia Awareness season, and my goal is to raise $3,000 for Bald Girls Do Lunch.
Whether your gift is anonymous or you choose to honor someone, ALL size gifts are awesome support to expand the work and reach of Bald Girls Do Lunch in person and online.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is the only non-profit specifically created for women with alopecia areata – the autoimmune skin disease which stops the normal growth of hair on the scalp, brows, lashes and body.
This fundraiser is to raise awareness for women with Alopecia, and to raise funds to help support the lunches put on around Utah for women with Alopecia.
I have Alopecia Universalis, and have had it for over 12 years. I was diagnosed when I was 11, in the sixth grade, and have been bald ever since. Until a couple years ago, I had never met someone with Alopecia, which makes it a lonely road. This organization brings together women and girls with Alopecia and helps you realize you're not alone. When I finally met someone with Alopecia, it changed my life, literally. I finally met people who knew exactly what I was feeling, the struggles and challenges I face, and just how it feels to be bald and try to live a normal life. I really loved meeting people with Alopecia. And for a lot of women, these lunches are the only place they see, or meet others with Alopecia.
This is my first fundraiser for an Alopecia cause, and I would love your support. Some people shave their heads in support, others donate time, money or resources.
Please consider donating to help this nonprofit become self-sustaining, and to help me in my fight to fund Bald Girls Do Lunch.
