Mission Statement

Our Mission:Helping Children Look Themselves and Live Their Lives!

When Children lose their hair, they don't just suffer physically. The change in their appearance can drastically undermine their self-image and sabotage their self-esteem. To help heal the pain of these struggles, Certified Cosmetic Therapist Jeffrey Paul founded Wigs for Kids, a nonprofit organization that has been serving children suffering from hair loss since 1981.

Wigs for Kids is a cooperative effort among Certified Cosmetic Therapists throughout North America who share a common goal. "Children shouldn't have to worry about how they look, especially when they're in the middle of a health crisis," says Jeffrey Paul. "We want to give these kids the opportunity to feel good about themselves again."

The value of all children’s wigs Hair Replacements is $1,800. "These are custom-made Hair Replacements," says Jeffrey Paul. "Each prosthesis is hand-tied and is made completely from human hair. We make sure they look just like a child's own hair."

"They won't come off on the baseball field or in the playground," he adds. "Kids can count on them. And because kids look just the way they did before, they feel better about themselves. They look in the mirror and their eyes light up. To see that light in their eyes-that's priceless."

Description

When children lose their hair, whether as a result of medical treatments, health conditions, or burn accidents, they don't just suffer physically. The change in their appearance can drastically undermine their self-image and sabotage their self-esteem. To combat this additional trauma, Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization will provide custom designed hair systems at no charge.

I really enjoyed volunteering my time for something so rewarding. You don't realize the time that goes into something like this until you involve yourself. Shivani was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed getting to meet and talk to all the other volunteers as well. I look forward to helping out more often.
