Happy Valentines Day! Locks for Love is back with the opportunity for you to donate your hair to Angel Hair for Kids! Contact Smiling Over Sickness or show up on February 28th in MUSC atrium with your minimum donation to participate. We had Gabriella, the fundraising coordinator for this event, on MorningFile to talk a bit about the mission behind Smiling Over Sickness as well as the incredible Valentines Day themed event that they put on annually where participants raise money and donate 8 or more inches of hair to Angel Hair for Kids. This organization provides wigs for children with medically-induced hair loss. Professional hairstylists fromEliegante Hair Design & Spa will be providing free hair cuts to participants who raise a minimum of $75.

You can get involved by participating in the raffle drive at the event, coming out to support those cutting their hair or enjoying the live music and excitement surrounding the day. If you'd like to cut your hair, feel free to email sos@mcmaster.ca to sign up for a pre-determined time slot or show up the day of and get your hair cut on the spot (just don't forget that $75 donation!). For more information, you can listen to our full interview below or visit their website.
