I donated 16 inches of hair to locks of love last year! (my hair is still past my butt!) just go to the website, if you have long hair you can donate some of it, it will grow back! I helped 3 people get wigs with my donation! I did have to pay all the shipping, but it wasn't much, and I kept the thank you cards from the ones that got my hair! It was a wonderfull experience, except for the fact that for a long time I would run my fingers through my hair it would abruptly stop! But its pretty much all grown out again!
