Hello all 🙂
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I’m back with a special edition of the Soulful Sunday.
Let me share some of the comments that I received –
Whether I donated my hair in a temple?
Did I cut my hair in the hospital?
Did I go to a holy place like Tirupathi to chop hair?
Do they need to go bald in order to donate hair?
How am I sure that my hair will go for the wigs for cancer patients and not be misused?
This made me realise that the awareness about hair donation isn’t there much as it should be.
Growing curls really long till the waist length isn’t an easy task. The struggle is real. I’m sure every curly hair girl will agree to this! It took me an year and a half to do so. I was totally addicted to taking care of my long tresses. One fine day I came across my favourite Youtuber Sherry Shroff’s video on hair donation. I googled more on the same topic and found how it can help someone who is terminally ill with cancer or other patients suffering from hair loss.
Here we are sitting comfortably in our homes completely healthy and doing great in our lives but there are many who are going through painful chemotherapy and what not! Giving doesn’t always have to be about money. Gifting a wig is such a selfless act that it can actually lift up someone’s confidence at the most difficult times of their lives & guys it’s just hair, It will grow back. You can definitely grow them back.
There are many salons that gives you huge discounts when they get to know about this purpose. I decided to cut my hair with my regular stylist at Lakmé Salon. Sadly Lakmé doesn’t give any discount on the same.
Once you make up your mind, do some homework on how to research a charity. Selecting which organization will receive your donation is a personal choice. Read about them to decide what best fits you. This is a great chance to make sure your donations are going to an organisation that you can support.
The instructions are clearly mentioned on the websites of the organisation you choose. Read them carefully even before you step into the Salon. If you don’t adhere to the organisation’s rules, they won’t accept your donation.
The wigs are given free only to economically weak patients. You cannot even imagine how it affects ones persona.
So this is my lil story of the best thing I ever did! I hope to get inspired & inspire more …..also hope this cycle of selfless deeds never stop.
Also a BIG thanks and bear hug to all those who supported & encouraged me with their kind words. You guys have no idea how precious are these words to me.
Leaving you guys today with this inspiring video on YouTube that inspired me big time!
Till next time, stay happy & fab! ❤️
