Do you work with sick children in long term care?
Locks of Love donates wigs to children with alopecia, mostly, although they will do so for other conditions t hat cause long-term hair loss. Generally, this does not include cancer patients, because this is a short-term condition.
It's on their website:
"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."
I know no children with alopecia, therefore I do not know anyone who has received donations.
And no one has ever said you "should" -- if you're going to cut your hair, then donate it if you want, but you don't have to grow your hair out just because you "have" to donate. That's silly.

Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
