The Big Reveal

Well folks, the deed has been done! My hair has been lopped off and delivered safely to Angel Hair for Kids.

Last friday I packed up my hair and was off to meet Kerry and Ana for the big cut. I was a complete bag of nerves and excitement all morning. I'd become more attached to my long locks than I thought I would. Kerry shot some "before" portraits of me, which was a pretty great way to say goodbye to all that hair before the scissors made an appearance. I'm pretty sure that I held my breath the entire time Ana was braiding and cutting my hair. It took an eternity for her to get all the way through my braid. I thought I might cry or feel completely naked once all my hair was gone, but what I ended up feeling was really excited that I was able to grow something that could mean so much to someone else who had lost her own.

I wanted to be sure that my precious cargo arrived safely at Angel Hair, so I grabbed my braid and delivered it in person. When I arrived, I was greeted with such excitement by two wonderful women, Dee and Roslyn. They proudly gave me a tour of the little studio that is used for fittings and showed me photos of the girls who have received wigs. Even though I didn't meet any of the girls in person, I could feel happiness exuding from their photos. I knew that something as simple as a head of hair was life-changing for these girls.

I want to thank everyone for their oh-so-generous donations. THANK YOU!! Because of you, we've raised $2512.00! That's enough money for almost three wigs!

My donation page will be active until June 13th. Feel free to spread the link far and wide while there's still time to help me reach my goal.

And now...... THE BIG REVEAL......

    Wait for it.....
