Just 8 inches - the kindest cut

First picture added for ANON!

The last couple of years, I have decided to become a hair donor. I like growing my hair out long, but I get rather tired of it come the hot TX summers and usually am ready for a change. Rather than have all that hair end up in a pile on the floor, I have my hairdresser chop my pony and then I can donate it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths or Children With Hairloss .
I prefer these two organizations because they are not-for-profit, they only require 8 inches as the min. for hair donations, and they will accept colored hair.
If this is something that interests you, please take time to read over each website to choose the organization that works best for your needs! I do know Pantene's will not take your hair if there is too much grey whereas Children with Hairloss will. It is certainly worth it to find out which organization your hair is a best fit for. I know I feel about 2 lbs lighter(it really weighs about that much) and feel GREAT about giving to such worthy causes.
ETA: Since I don't like having my picture up, I had dh take a picture of the backside. This is what my "do" looks like now with the front pinned back! (For Anon poster that wanted to see the "do" shot :P

Well done! I just did the same thing at the end of January. For me, I am not so noble, but lazy! I just hate making decisions, so I let my hair just grow. I'm glad to know the gray doesn't matter to the one group. I figured this was my last donation (had done this once before) since I am getting more "blonde" highlights. Ha! Good for you. It's nice to help someone else, isn't it?
