In honor of Madelyn Iris

I remember meeting the user who goes by Madelyniris several years ago in the old interference chatroom and talking with him about his daughter. It was the first time I had heard of this condition called alopecia which causes hair loss and which has no known cure. Since then, I've always thrown around the idea of donating my hair, but was too scared to do it for reasons of pride and vanity. But in the spirit of the season, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge and donated it to Locks of Love today. It was down to my waist, as I hadn't touched it with scissors since going to Africa two years ago. Actually, this is the shortest I've ever had it in my life. Kinda scary to make the change. However, in the grand scheme of things I hope that it helps someone who is in need.

Madelyniris, if you're out there, tell your daughter hello for me and that I hope she gets a really lovely hairpiece. Have a blessed holiday!

And for anyone else who might want to do the same thing, the Locks of Love website is pretty informative and lists local hair salons who participate. I'm editing this post to take out the link, but if you're familiar at all with the internet you'll find it easily.

Locks Of Love is awesome, good for you!

They do that at my hair salon, if my hair was long enough I would do it. My hair was long many moons ago, until I was about 14.

That is so great.

I am considering growing my hair out a little longer for the same purpose...

Thank you for sharing the link! Another great way to open and share the needs of this world with us.



I hope the thread isn't closed due to the ban on links to charitable organizations.

It shouldn't be...it was started by a Mod not a "conservative" poster. I wonder if the people who complained about my thread will be consistent in their complaints.

I hope it lasts too!

Your ROCK Sula!

I've donated before. I'd donate again, but I've gotten a lot of grey in my hair, and I don't know if they'll accept dyed hair.

I'm in no position to donate hair (can you say "just got a haircut"?), but thanks for letting us know about this.

I'm obviously not au courant with all of the latest in-fighting in FYM, but in order to remove any suspicion of favoritism, I've edited the original post to exclude any links. I'm a little saddened that some of you used this thread to score some sort of points in another debate.

I guess that makes two of us. I was happy the thread was created. It is a worthy cause. My real disappointment is that you changed it.
