Rapunzel gives her hair up for a good cause.
For those of you not familiar, Locks of Love is a non profit organization that takes human hair and fashions hair pieces for children who cannot grow their own hair due to illnesses such as leukemia or cancer.
Here is their mission statement:
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 hairdresser pictured in the background is my sister. She is pretty much my hero. She owns her own salon, is a mother, has a monogram business, recovers furniture, and still finds time to spend with charities and run Junior Auxiliary. She makes us all look lazy.
Her birthday was August 2nd and this past week she went to the doctor. She has been diagnosed with rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, which is very painful on her hands and feet. Please remember her while she copes with this hardship. I know she won't let it get her down!
