How to donate to Locks of Love

Every two years I donate my hair to Locks of Love. I can't think of a more worthy cause than helping children to feel more self confident. I want to share my experience to show you how easy it is.

Here is what you need:
Just fill out the form and mail the hair in the ziplock bag in the padded envelope. There are some guidelines for the hair. There's even a video that shows how easy it is to donate. So, if you are thinking about getting a haircut soon, consider making a hair donation to Locks of Love. If you do, I'd love to see before and after pictures.
Now, some before and after pictures. My hair was layered so the longest piece was over 14 inches, but most of the ponytail hair was in the 12 inch range. In the past 4 1/2 years, I've donated about 35 inches of hair to Locks of Love.



I'm not that great at taking my own picture but I think you get the point. :)

Updated2daysagoCar bombs kill at least two in Russia's DagestanAFP - Getty Images
Police investigators work at a blast site outside a building used by court officials in central Makhachkala, Russia, [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Twins-33-Justin-Morneau-red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-54/]Twins 33 Justin Morneau red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] on Monday. At least eight people were killed and more than a dozen injured in twin car-bomb blasts.
By Steve Gutterman, ReutersMAKHACHKALA, Russia - Two car bombs killed at least two people on Monday in Dagestan, a turbulent province in Russia's North Caucasus region where armed groups are waging an Islamist insurgency.
The mother of the two brothers suspected of the Boston Marathon bombing has told ITV News that her sons went to the event last year. Her chilling admission comes a day after her youngest son was charged with the crime in hospital. From her home town in Dagestan, ITV's Martin Geissler reports.
Car bombs, suicide bombings and firefights are common in Dagestan, at the centre of an insurgency rooted in two post-Soviet wars against separatist rebels in neighbouring Chechnya.

Investigators initially said eight people had been killed by the successive blasts in the provincial capital Makhachkala, but law enforcement officials later put the death toll at two and said more than 20 people had been wounded.

Both explosions were near the [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Rays-3-Longoria-Red-2011-All-Star-Jerseys-99/]Rays 3 Longoria Red 2011 All Star Jerseys[/url] headquarters of the court bailiffs' service and appeared to have been detonated by remote control, said the federal Investigative Committee, a Russian [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-52-CC-Sabathia-Red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-52/]Yankees 52 CC Sabathia Red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] state agency.

Twisted wreckage of a car could be seen near the building, which was cordoned off by police.

The main suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings in the United States, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, lived in Dagestan with his family about a decade ago and visited the region last year.

The visit by Tsarnaev, who was shot dead by U.S. police after the April 15 bombings that killed three people and wounded 264 others, is being scrutinised by U.S. investigators for signs of ties with insurgents.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered law enforcement authorities to ensure insurgents do not attack the 2014 Winter Olympics next February in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, which is close to the North Caucasus.

Most of the wounded and the two dead were caught by the second of Monday's explosions, a few minutes after the first, the investigators said.

Insurgents in the North Caucasus have often sought to increase casualties by setting off an initial blast to attract law enforcement officers and then detonating a second bomb.

Dagestan, an ethnically mixed, mostly Muslim region between Chechnya and the Caspian Sea, has become the most violent province in the North Caucasus, where insurgents say they [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-2-Derek-Jeter-White-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-55/]Yankees 2 Derek Jeter White 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] are fighting to carve out an Islamic state out of southern Russia.

At least 405 people were killed in Dagestan in [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Boston-Red-Sox-15-Dustin-Pedroia-Blue-Jerseys-16/]2009 All Star Boston Red Sox 15 Dustin Pedroia Blue Jerseys[/url] violence linked to the insurgency last year, according to the Caucasian Knot website, which tracks developments in the region.

Putin launched the second war in Chechnya as prime minister in 1999 and likes to take credit for preventing the region from splitting from Russia. But his 13 years in power have been marred by deadly attacks claimed by or blamed on the insurgents.

Death can also covered by some policies up to a set age but you should check with your provider as not all include this cover.
