BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
A family member of mine is going through chemo and will be bald during this holiday season. I have about 16 inches of hair from scalp to tip- for every $10 that is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, I will cut off 1 centimeter of hair. If we raise enough money for the length of hair to meet their requirements, my shorn hair will be sent to Locks for Love (they turn the hair into wigs for children with alopecia and cancer). I chose The Breast Cancer Research Foundation because they had the highest allocation of funds to actual programs of the cancer research charities I reviewed- i.e. for every dollar they receive, 91 cents go straight to research. Donating money for research grants is what is going to find the cure for cancer.
Help me be bald by Christmas!
