Donate Your Hair to Cancer Patients
I came across this sign at Makati Medical Center last week:
I’ve heard of programs like Locks of Love in the United States and Canada, but this is my first time to come across a Philippine version. I called the hotline for more info.
Unfortunately, my type of hair isn’t qualified for donation, but I’d like to spread the word to other interested individuals.
What: Gift of Your Hair 2016
