My name is Kelli. I am a 17 year old girl, a Senior Girl Scout in Marshfield. I am working on my Gold Award. The gold award is the highest award a girl scout can earn. It is a project that makes a difference in the world or someone’s life. I have shared my hair 4 times before to help kids with disease that causes them to lose all their hair. I have sent it off to "Locks of Love", it is a wonderful organization that helps kids.
Help me give a wig of long hair to a little girl who does not have any, or to a prom bound teen. It takes 6 to 10 pony tails to make one wig. I want to collect 50 pony tails. My hope is this will give five girls HAIR OF THEIR OWN. Maybe you can’t do it but know someone who could? Please help me get the word out there.
I love Locks of Love’s Mission statement:
Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children. The children receive hair prostheses free of charge or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.
GREAT you want to help! Hair must be clean and banded, cut at least a 10 inch rubber banded pony tail off, and you too can help with this project! I can send in ponytails that measure 6 to 10 inches and they will be sold to other wigs companies to off set the costs. I will be at the PTSG carnival March 28th collecting ponytails and would love to have you stop by and see me. If that will not work for you please call me to make arrangements to pick it up from you.
Thank you so much
I am half way to my goal
Together we can make a difference!
