Show You Care, Donate Some Hair

Photo from Read Magazine - October 30 - November 5 issue

I was reading some back issues of Read. magazine, the weekly magazine circulated for free at Dubai Metro stations, and an article entitled Hair for Hope caught my eye. Well, it was actually the picture on the front page that intrigued me at first, but the article was so inspiring, I thought I'd help spread the word.

To summarize, the piece is about sharing your hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients. It is a project started by Lola Lopez and is supported by a group called "Volunteer in Dubai

The hair you donate should be at least 20 cm long and you can contact these numbers to get your hair cut for free just mention that it is for the Hair for Hope project.

Ladies - Jet Set Altitude Salon (04 330 0886)
Men - 1847 in Emirates Towers (04 330 1847)

We have often heard of the hardships of people undergoing cancer treatment and chemotherapy but have we actually done anything about it? I'm sure cancer patients will appreciate our sympathy and words of encouragement however to empathize and do something to help would be more valued and might even give you that nice, tingly feeling of self satisfaction, knowing that you have helped somebody.
