Hair Donation Benefitting Wigs for Kids

For the past 6 years, THON has partnered with Wigs For Kids.  While several other organizations create hairpieces, Wigs For Kids provides children and families with wigs at no cost to the families. Wigs For Kids was founded by Jeffrey Paul in 1981 and provides custom made hair replacements. Each piece is handmade and made completely from human hair. The hair pieces Wigs For Kids provides children allow them to feel better about themselves and look the way they did before. By doing so, they are helping kids to feel like kids again.
