Not your average haircut
As we approach the season of giving you may be wondering what you can do to help someone in need, but a haircut may not come to mind for most of us. Last week, our sales trainer, Keith Langtry, went in for a haircut, but this time his hair wouldn’t just be swept up and thrown away. Instead, his hair would be sent to Children With Hair Loss
in South Rockwood, Michigan, and assembled into a wig for a child with hair loss.
What is CWHL?
CWHL or Children With Hair Loss
is a non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss at no cost to them. Currently, CWHL has provided a customized human hair replacement and care kit to over 300 children a year with their mission being, “covering young heads to heal young hearts”. What may be “just hair” to us may be something more than cosmetic for a child with hair loss.

Other ways to help
Did you know that human hair replacement system and hair care kit can cost a family of a child with hair loss up to $5,000 a year? If you are not able to donate your hair, you can still help out by making a monetary donation to CWHL.
Eric and Keith both donated their long locks of hair to Children With Hair Loss (CWHL).
