Help me plan the Chicago stop on the Thousand Locks for Cancer tour

  • August 9, 2013 · 11:00 AM

I'm the natural beauty editor for About.com and am organizing a summer hair drive and wellness tour to benefit Beautiful Lengths and make free wigs for women with cancer.

My stop in Chicago is planned for 8-9. Location suggestions needed.

I would love to organize a group meetup and charity effort with all the Chicago Fun Volunteers who would like to help. Looking forward to your thoughts, and to seeing you this summer.

Please share, donate $1 or more if you can and Like on Facebook and Follow on Twitter.

    No location, no problem. There is more than one organization collecting hair and some have more flexible requirements. I wrote about this on my July 25th blog and have both information and links. You can view the blog at www.choicesfundraising.com Scroll down to the date of July 25th.

    Why not just cancel it if there is no location.......... I'm sure you could reschedule this meetup when it is planned and figured out the location in advance...........

    Try a Chicago public library the one on Belmont or Fullerton can't remember which one has an awesome community room or the Harold Washington library but that one may cost. Community rooms are free for philanthropic purposes for Chicago residents email me at [masked]

    Assuming this is regarding hair cuts, I have been looking to donate mine again; this sounds perfect. I hope it's long enough by Aug. 9!

    We are about 6 weeks away. My hair is so long and heavy that it is driving me crazy! I'm looking forward to getting it cut. Since there has not been a location chosen. I am going to coordinate one in McHenry. I will post as soon as it is official. I am also going to coordinate a video photographer so we can spread the word that grey hair can now be donated. Lastly, I will post this as a no-cost way to donate to help others on my website: www.choicesfundraising.com. Please contact me if you want to come to the McHenry location or if you have any questions (about any charity work...quilts, service dogs, rewards for donations, etc etc).

    I would assume you'll also be looking for 'hair' donations? : )
    I was going for a cut this week, but I'll then wait for this occasion, & donate it (?) It should be about mid booty length byt then ; )

      I'm going to my salon this upcoming Friday, I'll ask the owner if he's interested and give him the information, including your email. I can't guarantee anything, but I'll definitely put it out there for him.

      I sent you a message to the email above on April 3 for a press kit or similar information to forward to the owner at Exsalonce Salon (where I go for my hair). I have yet to hear from you. Could you please reply here re: that email. It may have gone in your Spam filter accidently.

    Maybe try the beauty schools such as Capri. Maybe they can host it?

    This is something I would love to help with. I have a grandmother who died of cancer the end of last year.

    I just cut my hair last month! I was able to save about 8-10 inch pony tails, is that something you can use?

    What are the guidelines for donating hair?

      I have to admit my picture is not current and I don't have super long hair anymore, but since this isn't until August, I'm letting it grow!
