Non-Profit Organization Helping Children with Hair Loss
Many children live their lives without hair due to medical reasons such as cancer treatments, alopecia, lupus, trichotillomania, hydrocephalus and head burns. Our goal is to give away wigs to the children of families that can’t afford one. You wouldn’t believe the smile on a child’s face when they put on a wig for the very first time. It’s beautiful!
Our kids are on a waiting list to receive wigs through donations from our supporters, whether it’s financial, gently-used wigs, or ponytails. You can sponsor a child and get them off the waiting list. Andrew DiSimone, owner of HairPlaceNYC, one of New York’s premier hair and wig salons, sponsors this special program. In addition, we’ll cut, color and style your wig at no cost in a private setting at our salon.
Our goal is to improve the lives and self-confidence of as many children as possible by having them look and feel like themselves and be kids again.
