Donating Hair Again

, 2019-01-10

There are several organizations which take hair donations, but the one I prefer to donate to is Wigs for Kids, whose focus is children who need wigs due to cancer. Steve Jones asked for before and after pictures, so here they are. Total length was about 14 in use. I’m hoping the gray will stay back enough to get at least one more donation to Wigs for Kids. After that, I’ll have to find a ministry or non-profit that collects hair for adults. Pantene is now using synthetic hair and has discontinued its Beautiful Lengths program.

We did this at the church where I’m the youth director to remind the children and youth that anyone can find a way to help others, even by simply growing out some hair. You don’t have to have a lot of money and you don’t have to have a particular skill. If you want to help others, there are plenty of opportunities out there.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
