What It's About
Hey everyone! My name is Beenie. I'm teaming up with Princess Hair Shop, a primarily online hair extensions company, to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Our goal is $1,000. Like so many others, I have had family members and friends that have been impacted by breast cancer. Witnessing those close to me battle breast cancer and seeing the physical changes being just an indication of the struggles and pains they are dealing with has made me so appreciative of all of the small things I have in my life. One of those small things that I've become so appreciative of is my hair. My hair is currently 31" long, something not many people can say. However, I am ready to chop it all off and donate it to Locks of Love.
When my friend lost her hair during her fight, she always joked about how I should cut my hair for her. I wasn't joking when I said I would. It seems like such a small thing, but growing up as the kid that had the ridiculously long hair, I know the sense of identity something as simple as hair can bring.
Here's the breakdown. I'll cut around 15 inches of my hair off and donate it to Locks of Love if the fundraising goal of $1,000 for Komen for the Cure is met. In return you'll get to see what I'd look like with short hair (which you totally care about...right?) and a feeling of amazingness. Also I'll send you a picture of Nic Cage, by request.
Other Ways You Can Help
Spread the word! If you don't want to donate here, you can always support the cause by donating on the Susan G. Komen website, donating your hair to Locks of Love, or on many other websites. Also, Race for the Cure is coming up soon! Make sure you sign up! I'll see you there :)
