Way to go Mom O!

Mom O has been growing out her hair to make a Locks of Love donation. She reached the required 10 inches last Thursday. She now sports a short bob and her hair is on its way to becoming a wig for a child in need.

What is Locks of Love you ask...

(from the Locks of Love website)

"Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers."

If this has inspired you to make a donation or you just want to learn more about the organization visit their website at www.locksoflove.org
