Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide FREE hair replacements and solutions to children experiencing hair loss due to medical conditions, with a special interest in inner city kids and children of various ethnicities as their hair needs are often overlooked and underserved.


Butterflies BBI is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that was founded in 2012 and provides free hair replacements and solutions to children experiencing hair loss due to medical conditions. We are located in Queens NY and have a special interest in inner city and kids of various ethnic backgrounds because their hair needs are too often overlooked and underserved. What this means is that when we receive a request for assistance, we don't just provide our clients with a "one size fits all" wig or replacement. Too often, we've seen girls with wigs that are too long, not age appropriate, low quality and don't match their ethnicity. We are here to change that. What we do at Butterflies BBI is, we match our clients with a look that is similar to their look before their hair loss. This means that little girls with curly or wavy hair can now receive human curly and wavy wigs or hair replacements FREE OF CHARGE! Why is this important? This is important because most children that experience hair loss have self-esteem issues early on that can lead to problems adjusting later in life and we'd like to help eliminate that.
