We surpassed last year's total number donated and collected 855 inches of hair (that over 200 inches more!), which will be donated and turned into hairpieces for children with medical hair loss due to disease, burns, and cancer.
We also received pledges from 25 additional donors whose hair wasn’t quite long enough to donate during the campaign and we look forward to seeing them in the salon later this year.
A special thank you to the students, staff and parents from Stone Ridge School in Bethesda who joined us on Friday, February 13. Eight students donated their hair and many came to support the cause. Throughout the last year, about 40 Stone Ridge students have donated their hair to Locks of Love and during Bella’s campaign many signed the‘Pledge Board’ promising to donate when they have at least 10 inches of hair.
We love that we were able to out-cut last year’s donation. It is so nice to see the community come out and support a cause so special to Bella Bethesda.
Still interested in donating your hair to Locks of Love? Please call Stacy at 301-718-9111 for more details.
