He has hadd long hair all of his life so this is a really big decision for him. He has such a big heart and i am so proud of him. He has only had one major hair cut and we kept that ponytail when he was younger. Even then it was still around his shoulders. So any info or ideas would be great =oD

My younger brother used to have very long hair and needed to cut it to continue being a volunteer fireman. He was going to donate it; it was to be a very big deal in town with news coverage and everything (very small town) they ended up forcing him out and never doing the story on his hair or even getting it donated. He was disappointed in the whole situation because he really wanted to give someone a wig after our grandfather died of cancer.

WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 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.
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.
