Getting a haircut

So, it's time: I'm planning to donate my hair to someplace that makes wigs for kids who have cancer and thus have no hair of their own.

That said, I need some help:

If you have any experience with the various hair-donation organizations, I'd like to hear about it.

At the moment, my hair is between 10 and 11 inches long from the point where I can gather it into a ponytail. I don't know when I'll actually get it cut, but it'll likely be sometime in the next month, so it may get a bit longer to cover for "split ends" which some people like to point out but I simply cannot see (I think my hair is nice and healthy, thankyouverymuch). The hair isn't graying even a little, and has never, ever been dyed.

So, knowing nothing abut hair donation (or even long hair in general. . . you should see me trying to figure out what to do with it in the morning. . . it's a comedy sketch gone wrong), I turn to you guys.

Anything you might know about various Orgs, experiences you may have had, etc. Fire away? I could use the help here. I'm actually pretty lost on where to begin. I also don't know if I need to make an appointment through an Org or through a "supporting" stylist. I don't even know what Orgs are out there!
