Home / FREE Wigs for Kids
When a child loses their hair, they lose a piece of themselves. They suffer both mentally and emotionally. Their appearance impacts their self-esteem and in many cases they withdraw from social activities both in and out of school. In order to help the kids we have partnered with Wigs for Kids, a nonprofit organization that has been providing wigs to children since 1981.
The gift of hair replacement for a child is an amazing opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life. The families are never charged for the hairpieces and the families have us hair replacement professionals to walk them through the customization and care of the unit.
Did you know that it takes 18-20 ponytails of at least 12 inches of healthy, uncolored hair to make a wig? We cannot accept hair that has been chemically processed as in perms, colour or highlights.
Meet the criteria? Our team donates their time and efforts to help the kids. The haircut is FREE provided at no charge. We also prepare and ship the hair 4 times a year at our cost.
The cost of one wig per child or hair replacement system is $1800 – $2400 cdn, the family in need is never charged. The ponytails are donated and the funds help cover the expense of creating the hair replacement system. Not comfortable donating online, you can also donate on site.
