    We are originally from Michigan, and starting at the age of 3, my girls began donating hair and funds to Children With Hair Loss. It’s a great way for them to understand giving and helping others, and it’s something they personally can commit to. We’ve made several donations now. About every 3 years one or both my girls are able to donate. My youngest is almost ready to donate another batch of hair. This will be her 3rd donation, and second from Texas, where we moved to 5 years ago. We love the CWHL organization.
