I have always wanted to donate my hair. From 9th grade on, I always had really short hair. I would grow it out occasionally but it was never long enough to donate, and I would just end up cutting it again. For the last few years I decided to just let it grow and try my best not to cut it. When I found myself itching to cut my hair again, I had no idea it would be long enough to donate it. I guess I had just gotten so used to it that I didn't even realize how long it had gotten. I went to get it cut not even thinking about donating it until my hairstylist cut off my pony tail and it was 9 inches long! I found a place that requires hair to be at least 8 inches long so I was in the clear. I mailed it the next day and it feels so good! I chose Children with Hair Loss. It feels great knowing that a young child out there who has lost their hair will get to wear mine. I've been out of work the past few weeks recovering from a fracture in my leg, and I have felt pretty useless. Doing this really made me feel a little bit better about myself and I'm glad I could do something meaningful during this time off.
