Here is some information about groups that collection donated hair:
A note from Sam:
HEY FOLKS! I’m Sam, the newest member of the morning crew, and I have a lot of hair. SO- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I figured why not chop it off and donate?
Being my father is a doctor and my mother a breast cancer survivor, I’ve seen first hand how cancer and hair loss can affect a person- it far surpasses physical trauma. It is an emotional terrorist. Dealing with those obstacles are difficult enough for an adult, nevermind a child who is still learning how to cope with the “normal” challenges of growing up in today’s world. Take away his/her hair, and you’ve removed a security blanket. You’ve taken away a piece of identity, and opened that child up for possible bullying.
Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to fix this, short of writing a check or giving a little piece of ourselves- this is where I want your help. I would love for anyone who is considering donating their hair to do it with me. Between now and the end of October, take a Vine of yourself chopping your locks, and send it our way- say whatever you’d like! Who you are, where you are from, why you are donating, and smile for the camera.
Tag us on Twitter @ElvisDuranShow, #ElvisDuranDonates. You can even print out our official flyer and hold it up during your donation! At the end of the month, we will post a video of all of us doing this together.
I realize hair is important to people, and the idea of cutting it off for many is unimaginable. But if you think you can do it, you don’t realize how much your hair would mean to someone else! Here are a few organizations to choose from, accepting as little as 8”. Hope to see you on our site!!!
