I always thought that donating my hair would be a good thing to do before getting a radical haircut. Since my hair is processed I can’t do it now, but I always thought if I could get my hair long enough that it would be a worthwhile thing to do. Since I can’t donate myself I still can encourage others and let you know about a hair donation drive in Vancouver this November.
In honor of the Vancouver premiere of the new Disney On Ice show featuring Disney’s newest princess, the long golden-haired Rapunzel (from “Tangled”), Disney On Ice is sponsoring a heartwarming hair donation campaign partnering with Hype Hair Studio and Balding for Dollars
to benefit underserved children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Disney On Ice and Hype Hair Studio are inviting the community to cut and donate their hair from November 5th – November 9th. In appreciation of this donation each person (up to the first 50) will receive a family 4 pack of tickets to one of the Disney on Ice Dare to Dream performances.
Guidelines for Hair Donation:
Hair must be clean and dry prior to cutting
- The minimum length for hair donations is 8 inches.
- Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 8 inches.
- Hair that has been chemically processed cannot be accepted.
- Grey hair is acceptable.
- Donations must be tightly bound in a ponytail or secured with rubber bands one at each end of the ponytail and in the middle; and placed in a sealed plastic bag.
