07:56 am - 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!

There's some controversy surrounding LOL (like the hair going to alopecia sufferers, not cancer victims, not that they don't need hair too), and they do not meet all of the BBBs standards for Charity Accountability. I'd do some more research. This is all stuff I've heard via being on the long hair community, so I don't have links or anything other than what I found on wiki.
