30 Pics Of Kind People Before And After Cutting Their Long Hair To Donate It To Cancer Patients (New Pics)
If you're anything like me, cutting your hair often comes with conflicting emotions. At first, you look at the mirror and admire the courage it took you to make such bold changes but then you glance down, see all the locks of hair laying around the chair, and can't help but think if it was a mistake.
However, finding yourself in such a situation is a privilege in and of itself—some people have lost all their hair because of cancer treatments, alopecia areata, and other reasons.
Luckily, as we at Bored Panda have already shown in one of our previous lists, more and more folks are donating their hair to create more wigs and restore confidence in those who already have it tough. After all, the last thing they need is more rude stares on the street.
The good thing is that since we released the piece, we've seen many more of these unsung heroes. Below are some more of them.

As people stay home and skip the salon, some hair-focused non-profits are seeing one bright spot in the pandemic: more donated hair going to those who need it.
"Listen, there's never enough hair," stylist Martino Cartier, founder of the New Jersey-based Wigs & Wishes, which makes free wigs for people with cancer, told CNN. "We get donations every day and it's never enough, so this is definitely a silver lining for us."

With the coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the world, the nonprofit founders report a welcome but endless stream of emails, calls and mail from interested donors. And that's a good thing, they say. Many are willing to help.
"Covid-19 put a halt across the entire world, but the one thing it didn't stop was cancer," JoAn Nicely, founder of Pink Heart Funds in Mississippi said. A cancer survivor herself, Nicely understands the urgency even during a global crisis. "The need is there—doesn't matter how bad Covid is," she said.
If yuo too want to donate your hair, remember that different nonprofits have different requirements, so it's crucial to read all the instructions before you cut.
