This is the seventh year that students, moms, teachers and alumni have cut their hair at Crawford School. It’s for a wonderful cause. Their donated hair is made into wigs for women who can’t grow their own hair due to cancer and other medical conditions.
Formerly the hair was given to Locks of Love, but for the last two years the hair has been donated to Pantene, mostly because the shampoo company will take eight inches of hair instead of the 10 inches required by Locks of Love.
“Sometimes those two inches make a big difference on who can donate,” said Amy Peebles, the founder of the program at Crawford School.
“I started this because I knew it was something kids could give to easily because they don’t always have money to give. Hair is something they can give. It can still be a sacrifice, but it is something kids can do,” Peebles said.
The program has been a success year after year.blog comments powered by Disqus
