Hair Donation Ottawa raises funds for cutting-edge cancer research at CHEO, empowers kids with hair loss by providing them with free wigs and supports green initiatives. For more details about donating your hair, visit their hair donation guidelines.
Proceeds go towards:
- Cutting-edge cancer research at the CHEO Research Institute.
- Providing free wigs for local children and youth in need in partnership with Caralyn’s Hair Solutions.
- Green Circle Salons environmental efforts. They use this hair to create hair booms that help with oil spill clean ups in our oceans, lakes and rivers. No hair goes to waste. It’s a win-win!
- Two annual $500 bursaries to Algonquin College Hairstyling Program students to help offset their tuition fees and/or textbook.
