'WIGS of LOVE' Challenge.....launching soon.
'WIGS of Love' Challenge is a permanent ongoing lupus fundraiser. Participation is open to anyone world-wide.
Participants are asked to sponsor and grow their locks to a minimum length of 30 cm and then donate their hair to make medical wigs for the ‘Wigs for Kids’ program supporting kids with lupus, cancer, alopecia areata and other illnesses. As part of the program, the kids are given a voucher to the total amount of $400 to use at selected wig makers.
AND, if you don’t have hair to give, you can still fundraise and we will still provide you with your own fundraising page AND if that seems like too much hard work, you can also donate funds, products for auctions and items for our gift bags for our functions and events. So, there’s plenty of ways to show your support.
(refer to 'WIGS of Love' Challenge for more information)
