When Levinson and Stefani attorney Monica Singh needed a haircut, she decided to make it worthwhile. Thanks to the public non-profit organization Locks of Love, 12 inches of human hair is now available to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Many of the children that Locks of Love help suffer from the medical condition alopecia areta, which has no known cause or cure. Locks of Love makes high quality, natural looking hair prosthetics from hair donations, and provides hairpieces to children under age 21 around the United States and Canada.
A majority of Locks of Love’s donations come from children, and all of them go to children and young adults. These donations provide not only the donee with confidence to face the world and their peers, but the donor swells with pride knowing a simple act of kindness helps someone in need. Each donation is acknowledged by Locks of Love with a certificate, and the organization’s website shows off many of the before and after pictures of donors and donees.
Partner Jay Stefani’s young daughter has also donated to Locks of Love in the past. Jay remarked that they were surprised she had enough hair to donate at such a young age, and now her certificate is proudly displayed in her room.
Monica bravely parted with 12 inches of her hair, but Locks of Love only requires 10 inches as the minimum donation. There are numerous participating salons, and, in fact, if you tell your stylist you would like to donate to Locks of Love, many salons will cut your hair for free and mail your donation in for you, too!
