I am giving my hair the snip! This will be the second time in three years. The hair will be going to an organization that makes wigs for children with hair loss issues – whether it be through alopecia or chemotherapy.
In the meantime, I wanted to raise some money for another charity that is closely aligned with my values and passions. It is a registered Canadian charity called Beauty Gives Back. You might be wondering, what does this charity do exactly? Well, here’s the answer:
“Since being founded in 1992, the Look Good Feel Better program has helped over 160,000 women with its free two-hour cosmetics and hair-alternative workshops. Women with any type of cancer undergoing any type of treatment are invited to attend. They each receive a kit full of cosmetics and personal care products that our volunteers use to show them how to regain control over their appearance and feel more like themselves again. Participants learn about everything from caring for dry skin made sensitive by treatment, to recreating the look of brows and lashes lost during treatment. Workshops are run by our team of more than 1,600 industry-trained volunteers from coast to coast: makeup artists, aestheticians, beauty advisors and hair-alternative experts who selflessly give their time and share their skills to help women beat the Cancer Blues.”
Please donate whatever amount you can, if you feel so inclined. I sincerely appreciate your support in this endeavor. Thank you!
