    WHERE CAN I DONATE MY HAIR FOR CANCER PATIENTS?

    Is there an organization in the Philippines where I can donate my hair so it could be use as a wig (for cancer patients)?

    I'm encouraging my friends to do the same too, however, I don't know where to donate it. Please help me.

    Any tips are highly appreciated. Thanks.
    you think you know me? you have no idea... this is my life and i'm goin to live it the way i want to. =)

    I don't know about the Philippines. Hare you asked at your local hospital and your local oncologist's office? If they do not accept hair themselves, they may know who will. It is a nice project for you and your friends. I am sure it will be greatly appreciated. Good luck.

    I believe Locks of Love does it here in the states. If they don't operate in your country, maybe they'd know someone who does?
